REVEALED: Title winner Max Verstappen cost Red Bull £3.3MILLION in damages during a chaotic 2021 F1 season… but he’s beaten to top spot by one of the Haas rookies (with Lewis Hamilton way down the crash cost standings in 13th!)

Newly-crowned Formula One world champion Max Verstappen cost Red Bull a huge £3.3million in damage fees last season – £2m more than title rival Lewis Hamilton chalked up at Mercedes. Williams’ Nicholas Latifi, whose crash at the final race in Abu Dhabi brought out a safety car to help Verstappen win his first championship, ranked fourth overall with his car taking damages of £2.66m over the course of the season. Russell’s most noteworthy crash came early in the season against the man he will replace in 2022, Valtteri Bottas at Mercedes. Hamilton enjoyed much more success on the track and his only DNF came as a result of Verstappen’s car going over the top of his at Monza, ending both of their races.
