Verstappen refuses to budge on driving style

"If somebody says that, during the race, he does something because of what happened at the first corner - that it is payback - I don't think it is the correct sport to be purposefully paying back".

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen has met with FIA bosses to discuss his recent tactics and driving style.

"I don't like to stay in the past and what happened there", added the Red Bull driver, who was competing in the Heineken Champions of the Grid charity football match in Monza, Italy.

With the Formula One bandwagon moving to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix this weekend, expect more fireworks.

The Ferraris were pushed wide during the incident and, as a effect, Raikkonen nudged into the side of Vettel.

Vettel and Raikkonen tripped over each other at Turn One of Spa-Francorchamps, as the pair found themselves battling with Verstappen as the young Dutchman tried to make up for a poor start.

Apple expected to debut iPhone 7 next week
Apple has started sending invites to media houses for September 7 event where the iPhone 7 will be officially launched. In usual fashion, the company will be releasing a new device towards the end of the year (good strategy Apple! ).


Horner said Verstappen, the youngest race victor in the sport's history and already attracting a considerable following as a rare talent and rising star, cared little about what the others thought. It can end up in a very bad way.

The incidents prompted angry responses from both Vettel and Raikkonen, who said that talks with Verstappen may be required to curb his aggressive on-track antics.

Verstappen made his Formula 1 debut at the 2015 Australian Grand Prix, where he scored two World Championship points.

"That spirit he's got is bringing the fans trackside".

"In many regards we have too many things and too many people with opinions".

Sebastian Vettel says his first impressions of Ferrari's upgraded engine are promising, although the German says he wants to wait for the Monza weekend to play out before making a definitive judgment. "So, it's not because other drivers tell me that I have to change my driving style that I will change my driving style". "Mercedes is looking very strong, but we can focus on ourselves and we can do a good job". In the morning run, Nico Rosberg finished top of the time sheets, pushing Lewis Hamilton into second place by two tenths of a second. If we can use this tyre a bit better in qualifying we can get close to Ferrari, but we have a bit of work to do to catch them.
