Lewis Hamilton’s Silverstone crash with Max Verstappen has cost Red Bull £1.3MILLION to repair the Dutchman’s car as Christian Horner reveals his team are considering appealing ‘lenient’ punishment handed to Mercedes star

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has revealed Lewis Hamilton’s crash with Max Verstappen has left his team with a £1.3million repair bill. In a lengthy column, published to the Red Bull website, Horner said: ‘It is no secret that we felt at the time, and still feel, that Hamilton was given a light penalty for this type of incident. Horner continued his criticism of Hamilton for his role in the first-lap crash. ‘I also felt the narrative that Max was being ‘overly aggressive’ was unjustified. ‘The aggressive 17-year-old F1 rookie Max Verstappen that Hamilton is referring to is not the Max Verstappen of today, just as Hamilton is not the same driver he was when he entered the sport.’.
