Max Verstappen accuses Lando Norris of showing him a lack of ‘respect’ for incident during qualifying… with Brit insisting he would have expected a penalty for doing the same thing

Max Verstappen has accused Lando Norris of showing him a lack of ‘respect’ for overtaking him during qualifying, in an incident that had the pole-sitting Dutchman and the McLaren star under investigation. ‘We were on our outlap and we were all lining up to create a gap to everyone and then somehow he still wanted to get me into the chicane, but I was on the point of accelerating and I was on very cold tyres, so I had a little moment and that’s why he had to drive around me,’ Verstappen said in his defence. ‘It was quite clear he tried to do that, yeah,’ Norris said when asked if Verstappen was aggressively defending position.
