Lando Norris sent brutal dig on Max Verstappen’s team radio during chaotic Canadian Grand Prix

Lando Norris sent brutal dig on Max Verstappen’s team radio during chaotic Canadian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen got back to winning ways at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Lando Norris appeared to be on the end of a brutal team radio message during the Canadian Grand Prix.

On Sunday, Red Bull superstar and reigning Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen returned to winning ways as he won a chaotic Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Verstappen was helped to victory by the deployment of the safety car on lap 25 after Williams driver Logan Sargeant’s accident.

The Dutchman dived into the pits alongside George Russell and Oscar Piastri but Norris decided to stay out, meaning he could only emerge in third place when he pitted a lap later.

On the back of the pit stops, Verstappen’s race engineer Gianpiero Lambiase was heard saying on the team radio: “What goes around comes around. That’s Miami back.”

That message was a reference to last month’s Miami Grand Prix when Norris managed to jump to the lead thanks to a timely safety car.

Speaking after winning in Canada, Verstappen said: “Sometimes (it) works for you and sometimes (it) works against you. This time, it was working for us. I guess in that sense it’s 1-1 now this year. That’s racing.”


Norris said: “We didn’t do a good enough job as a team to box when we should have done, and not get stuck behind the safety car.

“I don’t think it was a luck or unlucky kind of thing, I don’t think it was the same as Miami. It’s on me and on the team. We should have won today.”

As a result of his win, Verstappen is now 31 points ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in the F1 standings.

It was a race to forget for Leclerc after he was forced to retire from the race on lap 43 after a string of issues, a complete contrast from when he won his home race in Monaco just two weeks ago.

F1 returns in just under two weeks' time with the Spanish Grand Prix, which will take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on June 23.
