SAY WHAT?! Verstappen at braking point, a penalty for Mr Russell and plenty of strategy dilemmas in the best team radio from Austin


A Sprint weekend at the Circuit of The Americas meant non-stop action from Friday all the way to Sunday, with some drivers much happier with their results than others. Max Verstappen emerged victorious in both the Sprint and the Grand Prix – but based on his radio messages, many concerning his lack of satisfaction with his brakes, it was anything but straightforward for the Dutchman...

He wasn't the only one complaining to his team out there. Yuki Tsunoda was left frustrated by a case of mistiming in qualifying, a fair few drivers got on the blower to complain about being blocked and Charles Leclerc had a very interesting way of addressing one of his colleagues.

Lance Stroll forgot where he was meant to start from on Sunday, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell couldn't agree on strategy calls, while the returning Daniel Ricciardo was struggling for pace and positivity down the back of the field.

Carlos Sainz was all about the chase late on, while his team mate was left frustrated after team orders were enacted down at Ferrari. To listen to all of those and more, hit play on the video above for all the best team radio from Austin.
