Normally Max Verstappen is an underdog worth betting on, but in Sunday’s race at Belgian, he was caught in the crossfire. Whether he was the cause of his own downfall or not is up to speculation, but the 21 year old driver has been in the top five finishers since the 2019 season began.
With Lecercs recent success, the young driver tried to pull out all the stops at the races start by cutting inside on the first turn. This is where Verstappen caused a collision between atleast four other drivers. His aggression mixed with desire to win has proven beneficial, but with Belgians race disqualification on his mind, maybe the eager driver will use strategy at the start of the next race in Italy on Sunday September 8th 2019.
