Verstappen & Norris Collide in Final Moments of the Race

Max Verstappen and Lando Norris collided after a long battle on the track. Both got punctures and lost their lead in the race.

George Russell is now leading, followed by Carlos Sainz and Oscar Piastri. Max is in fifth with a 10-second penalty, while Lando had to retire.

Race Drama Unfolds:

Max seemed to be cruising in first place but kept complaining about his hard tires on the radio. He called them ‘***’. Getting stuck behind slower cars cost him time, dropping his eight-second lead to six seconds fast. The pressure was mounting as he struggled with old medium tires. Haas drivers were closing in, pushing Max to pit, but things went wrong there.

The pit stop was slow because Red Bull had to wait for Norris’s car to clear before releasing Max. Under pressure from Lando, Max made a small mistake entering turn four—braking late on cold tires but managing the corner just barely. This allowed Norris to get within a second of him and start his attack.

Fans might think this race is full of surprises!

Lando tried attacking again at turn three, but Max responded by steering inside at the last moment. According to Lando, this wasn’t fair play because it was too late of a move. Not long after that attempt, Lando tried once more.

This time he got inside of Max but couldn’t keep his car on track and gave back the position at the next corner. On the radio, he kept complaining about Max’s moves being illegal. Finally, on lap 63 at turn three, Lando managed an overtake but went off track again while keeping his spot. Then everything went wrong—both drivers collided causing flat tires for both cars!
