Red Bull chief Helmut Marko slams Lando Norris as ‘PATHETIC’ after his crash with Max Verstappen… and reveals one change to their behaviour which suggests their bond is damaged

Helmut Marko has branded Lando Norris as ‘pathetic’ and pinned blame on him following his crash with Max Verstappen at the Austrian GP on Sunday.

The Red Bull director also revealed an unusual change to Norris and Verstappen’s behaviour towards each other afterwards which suggests their relationship has soured.

Verstappen and Norris inflamed the row of the weekend when they collided at Turn 3 on lap 64. The two had been leading the race comfortably but their tyres were ruined by the clash, with the former finishing fifth and the latter forced to retire.

 

Verstappen was handed a 10-second time penalty by the stewards, who held him primarily at fault, while Norris was given a five-second sanction for exceeding track limits – not that it mattered, given his retirement.

Norris blamed Verstappen for moving under braking consistently during the race and for driving him off track, while the Dutchman claimed he had been ‘divebombed’ by the Englishman.
