Video: New footage shows Red Bull miracle fix for Verstappen at Hungary

Max Verstappen put the entire Red Bull team and its fans on edge when he uncharacteristically crashed his RB16 on the way to the grid at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2020, dealing his mechanics a hefty fix-up job before the race started. New video footage shows exactly how the team managed to get Verstappen ready to race again.

Verstappen was driving on intermediate tyres at the Hungaroring on his way to the grid when he crashed into the barriers at Turn 12, totalling his front left suspension just 22 minutes before the race was set to begin.

The driver managed to follow his team’s instructions to get the car to the grid and repair it there instead of committing to a pit lane start, and now F1 have released video and audio footage which shows how the Red Bull mechanics scrambled to get the car ready to race.

Even the experienced team advisor Helmut Marko recognised that the fix had to be “the fastest we have ever done”.

Watch the entire video showing the rapid fix up.
