F1 fans all over the world were in total disbelief when Max Verstappen crashed out of the lead of the recent Azerbaijan Grand Prix. After his tyre exploded on the Baku start/finish straight, many feared that it could be a title-deciding moment. Clearly frustrated with his unreliable Pirelli tyre, he gave it a good solid kick and a new meme was born.
Luckily for Max, the intense championship battle with Lewis Hamilton is still going strong after Hamilton ran wide at Turn 1 after the standing start for a two-lap showdown. He finished in 15th, meaning both title contenders left Azerbaijan without any points. Mental scenes.
One youtube account, F1nest Seven level, has taken things to another level and inserted the clip of Max kicking things into some iconic F1 moments.
We really love the internet sometimes. Like, a whole lot.
As well as videos on YouTube, another F1 fan has now created an Instagram account dedicated to the best edits of Verstappen booting things.
It’s not just Max kicking things either. Verstappen has been edited into several music videos and unusual situations as a result of his moves by Louis Nutley.
Excellent work all round 👏
