“I’m not interested in getting involved”– Max Verstappen is not interested in investing himself in the media hype given to his recent crash.
For the first time since the British Grand Prix race, Max Verstappen has spoken about the crash he had after colliding with Lewis Hamilton and had to seek a hospital for precautionary checks.
The Dutchman insists that he is not interested in the media hype it has received over the last week and wouldn’t want to invest himself in any fallout.
“I don’t have much to say on all the media hype and to be honest I am not interested in getting involved in any of that,” Verstappen said in a Red Bull preview.
“I know what happened at Silverstone as I was in the car and obviously I feel a certain way about how my race ended but now I’m just focusing on making sure we are the best we can be on track so we can stay ahead in the championship.”
“The team can take care of the official side of things and anything that needs looking into after the crash, but my job is the same as always – to be the best I can and try to win on Sunday.”

“I enjoy Hungary as a track and let’s hope there is a little less action on the way to the grid as the mechanics worked some sort of miracle to get my car out for the race last year!”
Some technology help to test
Verstappen claims that he is feeling fine after the crash and has been working on a simulator for the last 24 hours to check the comfort level after the bruises.
“I’m happy to get back on track in Hungary this weekend, especially after the last race result,” he explained. “I’m a little bruised of course but that’s normal after such a big impact but I’m training and feeling good.”
“I did a 24hr sim race this week and it was a good test to see how my body would react to spending time sat in one position and behind screens for a long time.”
“I felt absolutely fine which makes me feel positive heading into the weekend. I’m definitely ready to go again!”
