Verstappen slams fans for burning Hamilton merchandise

Formula One championship leader Max Verstappen has slammed fans who burned Lewis Hamilton-branded merchandise, calling their actions disgusting.

That’s of course not acceptable,” the Red Bull driver, who beat Mercedes rival Hamilton to last year’s title in a controversial season-finale, told reporters after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix.

These individuals, I definitely don’t agree with that because that’s just disgusting.

Verstappen, Formula One’s youngest race winner, and the first Dutch world champion has a legion of fans dubbed the ‘Orange Army’ that follow him around the world.

Footage circulating on social media over the Hungarian GP weekend appeared to show fans burning Hamilton merchandise.

The next race in Belgium, where Verstappen was born, is another Orange Army stronghold with the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort, the 24-year-old’s home race, following the week after. Both of these Grand Prix will be very attractive to F1 fans for betting.
