Verstappen Confronts Perez Over Controversial Incident at Austrian GP Sprint Race
Max Verstappen expressed his frustration and demanded a discussion with his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez after feeling he was squeezed onto the grass during the start of the Austrian GP sprint race.
The race began with a Red Bull front-row lockout, with Verstappen leading the pack and Perez alongside him. However, Perez managed to snatch the lead into the opening corner, initiating a tense battle between the two drivers. Verstappen found himself forced onto the grass as he was seemingly squeezed by Perez but swiftly regained the lead at Turn 3. Unfortunately for Perez, this manoeuvre cost him a position as Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg overtook him.
