The winner of the Monaco Grand Prix 2021 Max Verstappen was zapped after his gaffe in the third practice session of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2021. The Dutch driver was seemingly frustrated at the Baku Circuit City after crashing against one of the signboards in the third practice session. Verstappen was running wide on a narrow left-hand corner. Just then the low-speed impact of the barrier on the exit damaged the suspension on Verstappen's car and he moved out of the race. This happened at Turn 15. The session had to be stopped for a while so that his car could be recovered.
