Piers Morgan rips into the phrase “whiny wuss.” With a quip from Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen
Piers Morgan has chastised Max Verstappen and Red Bull for their response to Lewis Hamilton’s incident at the British Grand Prix.
After colliding with Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen was forced to retire from the British Grand Prix. It resulted in a 10-second time penalty for the Mercedes driver, but Red Bull appealed the judgment, which was overturned yesterday.
Now, according to Piers Morgan, Verstappen needs to “grow a pair” and focus on his Drivers’ Championship battle with Hamilton.
The Dutchman leads by eight points heading into this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
Now that the appeal has been dismissed, Morgan believes it is time for Verstappen to move on from his last race at Silverstone and demonstrate his class.
“Wonderful,” he tweeted. Now get some balls and stop being such a whiny wuss since @LewisHamilton beat you in the last race.”
Former drivers, analysts, and fans have all expressed their thoughts on the disaster since it occurred at Silverstone.
Some blamed Verstappen, others Hamilton, and yet others thought it was just a racing mishap.
Verstappen is poised to make a strong start in Budapest and increase his lead.
“I’m excited to get back on track in Hungary this weekend, especially given the previous race result,” he stated.
“Of course, I’m bruised, but that’s to be expected after such a large impact, but I’m training and feeling well.
“This week, I performed a 24-hour sim race, and it was a good test to see how my body would react to sitting in one position and staring at a computer for an extended period of time.
“I felt fantastic, which makes me optimistic about the weekend ahead. I’m more than eager to return!”
The Dutchman had made it obvious that he didn’t think Hamilton’s 10-second time penalty was sufficient.
“You basically knock away your major competition, and with the speed we have with our cars, we are miles ahead of the third-best team,” Verstappen explained.
“In normal conditions, we are easily 40 to 50 seconds ahead. As a result, a 10-second penalty has no effect. As a result, that penalty should have been much harsher.”
With the appeal dismissed, he must now refocus his efforts on winning the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Hamilton, though, will not make it easy for himself, as Budapest is one of his favorite places to visit, and he intends to win the race. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
