Max Verstappen fans caught disrespecting Austrian national anthem

Max Verstappen topped every session at the 2023 Austrian GP.

Going an entire Formula 1 race without a quick trip to the loo can be a difficult feat at times, none more so than for the fans in attendance.

Once you’ve found your seat in the grandstand or the perfect spot on a grass bank, you don’t dare vacate it.

This can make toilet breaks challenging, after knowing that if you leave your spot, you’ll often return to find it being occupied by somebody else.

At the Austrian Grand Prix recently, this was clearly something Max Verstappen fans were trying to avoid.
