'Spoiled, entitled brat!' Jeremy Clarkson brands Formula 1 star Max Verstappen a 'b***ard'
Clarkson’s Farm star Jeremy Clarkson has called Max Verstappen a “spoiled, entitled brat” in his latest column.The former Top Gear presenter’s scathing remarks come after Max refused to let teammate Sergio Perez pass even after he had already become world champion.Jeremy noted that at first Formula 1 fans were won over by the racing driver’s “exuberant style and his get-out-of-my-way yobbery” but that the tables have since turned.The presenter then went on to describe how the sports star had gone from “hero to zero” at lighting speed in his eyes.Max sparked controversy last year when he won against Lewis Hamilton in Abu Dhabi on what was viewed by some to be an error in judgement.However, he is nonetheless one of Formula 1’s biggest stars, with fans all over the world.“Despite the controversy, we were all thrilled when he won his first world championship. And even more thrilled when he won his second,” Jeremy admitted. “But then, during one brief radio message in the closing stages of last weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix, everyone suddenly decided that actually he was a b***ard.”Jeremy went on to describe how Max had been asked to slow down in order to let his teammate Sergio pass him by.Pointing out the star’s placement was irrelevant as he had already been named world champion at that point, Jeremy described the ask as “no big deal”. Therefore, the star was infuriated to see that Max refused the request, despite it being an important race for Sergio given that he has been battling for the runner-up position. Jeremy wrote: “Now, there was one time – in Monaco – when Sergio really didn’t help Max but there have been plenty of other occasions when he actively did.

Red Bull found guilty of 'minor' budget cap breach as team waits on FIA punishment

The FIA would also note that with respect to this first year of the application of the financial regulations the intervention of the FIA cost cap administration has been limited to reviewing the submissions made by the competitors and that no full formal investigations were launched.“The FIA cost cap administration is currently determining the appropriate course of action to be taken under the financial regulations with respect to Aston Martin and Red Bull and further information will be communicated in compliance with the regulations.”Verstappen claimed his first world title last year, securing the victory over Lewis Hamilton in dramatic circumstances in the season finale in Abu Dhabi, before retaining the title this year after winning a shortened Japanese Grand Prix - which also saw chaos ensue after initial confusion.Heavy downpours meant the Suzuka race was limited to just 29 laps, which resulted in confusion over whether full points would be handed to Verstappen following his win, and after that was the case - the Dutchman was announced world champion for a second time.But with his title this year a formality, Red Bull had come under scrutiny in the last couple of weeks with reports suggesting the F1 giants had gone over the cost cap that had been introduced at the start of last season.

'P****d' Lewis Hamilton tells Mercedes 'I can't believe you screwed me' in radio rant
Lewis Hamilton unleashed an expletive-laden rant at his Mercedes team after seeing his chances of winning his first Grand Prix of the season wrecked by a questionable strategy call.Hamilton was well-placed to win the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort after what looked to be an inspired strategy of running long on the medium tyres from the start and then switching to hards for a one-stop strategy.However, a virtually safety car (VSC), triggered when Yuki Tsunoda, of Red Bull’s sister team AlphaTauri, stopped on track and a full safety car, needed when Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas ground to a halt on the pit straight, jumbled up every team’s strategy.

Russell had previously been running between leader Hamilton and Verstappen.On the restart after the full safety car, Verstappen easily overtook Hamilton, who had switched to mediums during the VSC but stayed out during the full safety car.It could be argued Mercedes should have either kept Russell out as a buffer between Hamilton and Verstappen, or brought Hamilton in for the fastest soft tyres. Did Mercedes make the wrong call? Have your say in the comments section below. Either way, the seven-time world champion was left fuming by his team’s handling of the race."That was the biggest **** up,” he fumed over team radio before another rant soon after: "I can't believe you guys **** **** me, can't you how **** I am."Having been left on the slower tyres, Hamilton was overtaken by Russell and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and came home fourth as Verstappen took victory to
