Alex Albon wrecks Red Bull in British Grand Prix practice while Max Verstappen fumes


Alex Albon endured a nightmare Free Practice 2 session at Silverstone on Friday afternoon as he lost control of his Red Bull while going through Stowe. The Thai-Brit driver went flying off the track during the high-speed right hand turn and spun as he tried to control the RB16.

The rear end and the left side of the Red Bull picked up significant damage as it went crashing into the barriers, leaving Albon shaken.

In a clip from team radio, Albon said he lost the rear end of the car, which has been a problem Red Bull have been trying to fix since the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix.

His team-mate Max Verstappen, meanwhile, had been left fuming minutes earlier when Romain Grosjean got in his way during a hot lap.

The Dutchman let out an expletive-laden blast at the Haas driver after being stopped from laying down a time sheet-topping lap at Silverstone.
