Christian Horner made his feelings on the Lap 1 incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton clear.
Emotions have been high over the last 24 hours among the Red Bull team and fans after a dangerous move saw Max Verstappen in the barriers and out of the race with injuries.
The Dutch driver incurred a 50G crash and was sent to the hospital for precautionary checks before being released.
Hamilton ultimately won the British Grand Prix, however, his actions of celebration have raised eyebrows across the board after the dramatic race.
Red Bull’s Christian Horner later described it as a “hollow victory” for Hamilton whose move that caused the incident “looked desperate”.
“It shouldn’t be like that to be honest with you.
“Max has incurred a 51G accident, Lewis Hamilton is a world champion and he shouldn’t be making manoeuvres like that.
“It’s unacceptable. He’s put a driver… thank goodness the biggest result for us today is he was uninjured.
“He’s having to go to the hospital for precautionary checks after a 51G accident so I hope Lewis is very happy with himself.
“For me, that’s a hollow victory.”
Hamilton spoke after the race and clearly saw things from a different perspective saying:
“I always try to be measured in how I approach, particularly with battling with Max, he’s very aggressive.
“Then today I was fully alongside him and he didn’t leave me any space.
“But, regardless of whether I agree with the penalty, I take it on the chin and I just kept working.
“I was like ‘I’m not going to let anything get in the way of the crowd’s enjoyment of the weekend, the national anthem and the British flag’.”
