Dutch GP pokes fun at Verstappen trophy mishaps

The F1 championship leader has broken two trophies in two races.

The Dutch Grand Prix X [formerly Twitter] feed has poked fun at Max Verstappen's recent trophy mishaps.

Verstappen has been in sublime form this season, securing 10 wins from 12 races, including each of the last eight.

But whilst it has been smooth sailing on track, the Dutchman has had a rough relationship with winners' trophies at the Hungarian and Belgian Grands Prix.

Lando Norris' customary champagne bottle tap on the podium in Budapest saw Verstappen's porcelain trophy fall and shatter - with a replacement being created.

Then at Spa-Francorchamps, Red Bull's team victory photo saw the winning constructors' trophy toppled as personnel ran from the inevitable energy drink shower - though the award was pieced back together.

In a humourous post on social media, the Dutch GP has posted a picture of its winners' trophy wrapped in bubble wrap, captioned: "Let's break records, not trophies."
