Max Verstappen has revealed he is carrying an unknown injury to his finger at the British Grand Prix.

The F1 championship leader secured yet another pole position in qualifying at Silverstone, bettering the surprise challenge of McLaren duo Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri as wet-to-dry conditions provided a thrilling session.

Verstappen was sporting a bandage on his hand during post-session media duties, leading to concerns over his fitness ahead of the race.

Adrenaline kick

Speaking to media, including RacingNews365.com, and referring to the bandage, Verstappen said "It looks a bit interesting, right?

"It’s just a hand injury. I injured my finger and my hand at the same time, but it's fine when I'm driving.

"At first I couldn't squeeze my hand quite right, but that's okay again now. I don't know exactly [how] - very weird.

"The adrenaline kicks in then, but while driving I don't think much about it anyway. Yesterday (Friday, ed.) was more difficult, but this Saturday it was pretty okay again."
