Red Bull chief accuses Lewis and Mercedes of FAKING his injuries from the terrifying crash with Max Verstappen and ‘pulling up stories’ to blame them
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has accused Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team of faking the injuries he sustained from last week’s Italian Grand Prix crash with Max Verstappen.
Hamilton and Verstappen were involved in a serious accident at the Variante del Rettifilo in Monza. The British driver left the pit lane on lap 26 of 52 and met Verstappen – who had dropped further back following a slow 11.1-second pit stop.
The pair headed into Turn 1 side by side before Verstappen drove over the raised kerb on Turn 2, causing his car to fly into the air and land on top of Hamilton.
Hamilton has since revealed he will be seeing a specialist before the Russian GP as his neck is getting ‘tighter and tighter’ – although it didn’t prevent him from attending New York’s glitzy Met Gala last night.
