Ralf Schumacher believes Max Verstappen will remain as aggressive as ever in wheel to wheel combat, despite coming off worst against Lewis Hamilton when the pair collided at the British GP.

The championship protagonists raced each other hard before coming to blows at Silverstone, with Verstappen suffering a 51G impact when making contact with the barriers. Schumacher feels it will have almost no effect on the Red Bull driver.

"Max is not a scared, he will not go off the gas," Schumacher told F1 Insider. "The only thing I can imagine is that he looks even more in the rear-view mirror."

Schumacher knows how it feels to have a big shunt, having had a 78G crash at Indianapolis in 2005. He says the accident gave him problems for three months but everything was back to normal after that period.

"It was tough, especially the first two weeks," said Schumacher. "I was only able to get back in the car after three months. But that's when I broke the track record on the seventh lap during tests at Silverstone.

"I was a bit tired in my head before due to the constant tests and races. That was the case for everyone at the time. But after the three months, I really felt like driving again."
