British GP: Verstappen confused by ‘strange’ wheelspin
Max Verstappen’s race was far shorter, high-speed spinning on the exit of turn 2 and out of the race on the restart following the safety car period, finding himself stuck in the gravel at Farm corner. Also, he was the only driver to start race on the prime tyre.

“After the safety car restart, I don’t know what happened in turn two. I was flat out on the throttle and suddenly I just lost the rear. I touched the guardrail softly so there was a bit of damage, but then I was in reverse but it wasn’t reversing. It was very strange.” said Verstappen

“A very short race for me unfortunately, I didn’t have the best of starts and I suffered from a lot of wheel-spin.

“Luckily I was able to escape from the crashes that happened in front of me, but when the race restarted after the Safety Car period I suddenly lost the rear of the car at Turn 2. Even though I only damaged the front wing a bit and my race ended there.

“A shame, but we can’t change it now so we just need to focus on the next race, keep my head up and come back stronger.”
