Verstappen plays down Lance Stroll insults

Max Verstappen has played down the reaction to his radio insults following a crash with Lance Stroll during Friday practice in Portimao. The Dutchman let off an expletive-filled denunciation of the Racing Point driver, but what attracted the most negative attention was his choice of politically-incorrect insults. For instance, Verstappen called Canadian Stroll a “retard” and a “mongol”. But when asked about those who may be upset about his language, the 23-year-old suggested the onus was on those who decided to broadcast it publicly. “I was just angry at the time, which is why I called him that. “Afterwards I spoke with Lance and everything is fine between us.”.
