F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton could face another punishment as Max Verstappen told off by dad | F1 | Sport

Max Verstappen’s dad has told his triumphant son that he must air his frustrations in a ‘neater way’ after the Dutchman’s scathing criticism of the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Verstappen – who won Sunday’s race – was not looking forward to his first outing in Sin City, raising concerns about the track.

The 26-year-old also said he felt like ‘a clown’ during a glitzy opening ceremony featuring several A-list celebrities.

Not one for the glamour, Verstappen was brutal in his criticism of the event. But father Jos believes it must be channelled differently

“I do think he can say things, but in this case in a neater way. I told him that directly,” former F1 star Jos told De Telegraaf.

Verstappen privately aired his grievance with an F1 member of staff before the race.

Jos added: “Once in a while he needs that too. I also think the battery is running out a bit, with a lot of people. But that Max likes racing, you saw that today. I understand his opinion, but you can’t kick blindly at everything.”
