Max Verstappen warned

MAX VERSTAPPEN secured his sixth win of the season at the Canadian Grand Prix as he extended his championship lead.

 

Max Verstappen has been warned he is not a “true champion” in a tongue-in-cheek quip by Jacques Villeneuve after securing a win at the Canadian Grand Prix. The Dutchman fought off a charging Carlos Sainz to pick up another back-to-back victory to extend his lead in the standings to 46 points.

 

However, former champion Villeneuve said the Red Bull star would not be a proper champion despite his wins. Jokingly, the 1997 winner said Verstappen had not done one vital thing in Canada to stand among F1’s greatest drivers: hit the wall at the end of the last corner.

 

Branded the Wall of Champions, the piece of concrete has caught out some of F1’s greatest stars including Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher. Damon Hill, Jenson Button and Villeneuve himself were other champions to all make contact with the barrier.
