Wolff apologises after Bottas takes out Verstappen

That was how Max Verstappen reacted on Sunday after losing the lead of the world championship to Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in Hungary. Indeed, Horner said Perez’s engine was damaged in the incident, while Honda ultimately had to replace the engine that was fitted to Verstappen’s crashed car at Silverstone. “That is a significant disadvantage in the world championship fight against a Hamilton as strong as this,” he said. In Hungary, though – although Hamilton has raced 6 points ahead of Verstappen – the damage could have been much greater for the Red Bull star. “Thankfully, Mercedes did a howler strategically today, and Fernando Alonso looked like he was driving for Red Bull which limited the damage,” said Horner.
