Max Verstappen ‘given parking ticket’ as Red Bull’s chaotic week takes bizarre new twist ahead of F1 Bahrain GP

MAX VERSTAPPEN’S old Red Bull car received a PARKING TICKET in Bosnia earlier this week.

The car was placed out in the middle of the street in Sarajevo as members of the public took photos with the prize possession.

Yet not long after it was put there, a parking ticket appeared on the side of it.

The pink and yellow form could be seen near the Halo of the car – which Verstappen claimed his 2022 world title in.

It is not known whether the ticket was a joke or a mistake.

It is the latest in a string of headlines involving Red Bull ahead of the opening weekend of the 2024 season in Bahrain.

On Wednesday, team principal Christian Horner was cleared of any wrongdoing after bombshell claims were made by a female colleague about his behaviour.

The 50-year-old will remain at the helm of Red Bull after an internal three-week investigation dismissed the grievance.

Meanwhile, Verstappen was left furious after the first practice session in Bahrain as he posted just the sixth fastest time – more than three tenths of a second off the pace.

Daniel Ricciardo, driving for Red Bull’s junior team, RB, topped the standings in the first session.


And Verstappen, bidding to claim a fourth successive world title, was livid as he addressed his team over the radio.

He could be heard furiously saying: “Everything is s***. Like miles off.”

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton finished the second practice session at the head of the pack, followed by Mercedes team-mate George Russell.

Once again, Verstappen finished sixth, nearly half a second down on Hamilton.
