Red Bull release bold statement on Lewis Hamilton racist abuse after Max Verstappen crash

Red Bull have released a statement as Lewis Hamilton was subjected to racist abuse on social media after colliding with Max Verstappen at the British Grand Prix. The duo went wheel-to-wheel in a breathless opening lap at Silverstone, before a gutsy Hamilton move at Copse corner sent the Dutchman crashing into the tyre wall. Hamilton was handed a 10-second penalty which he later served in the pits. Verstappen dropped down to fifth place, but the 36-year-old upped the pace to stage a remarkable comeback and claim a record-breaking eighth British Grand Prix victory. After the race  Hamilton was subjected to disgusting racist abuse and Red Bull have spoken out over the incident.
The Red Bull statement read: “While we may be fierce rivals on-track, we are all united against racism.   "We condemn racist abuse of any kind towards our team, our competitors and our fans.   "As a team, we are disgusted and saddened to witness the racist abuse Lewis endured yesterday on social media after the collision with Max.   "There is never any excuse for it, there is certainly no place for it in our sport and those responsible should be held accountable.”
