Max Verstappen’s reaction to Red Bull destroying trophy

Red Bull destroyed their own trophy at the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix.

For the second race in a row, Red Bull left with a broken trophy; however, this time it was entirely their own fault.

Whilst taking a team photo after Max Verstappen won the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday, the team suddenly ran forwards whilst spraying champagne.

Whilst running forwards, someone seemingly knocked the Constructors’ trophy over, destroying it in the process.

Verstappen clearly heard the smash, as he looked round and saw the damage.

“It’s broken again, the trophy is broken again!” shouted Verstappen, whilst Christian Horner was seen smiling.

It was the reigning World Champion’s trophy which was broken at the Hungarian Grand Prix, but it wasn’t his fault.

After winning at the Hungaroring, Lando Norris destroyed the Dutchman’s trophy on the podium, when attempting his traditional champagne celebration.

Norris knocked Verstappen’s $40,000 trophy onto the floor, to which it shattered into several pieces.

Verstappen’s win on Sunday marked his eighth consecutive victory and his 10th of 2023.

As well as that, the two-time World Champion’s win was Red Bull’s 13th of the row and 12th of the season.

The team have so far still won every race this season.

Horner sent garage technician Greg Reeson onto the podium to collect the teams’ trophy, with the team boss having explained afterwards why he sent Reeson onto the rostrum.

“Results like today are the combination of teamwork and that’s why you guys have seen Greg, our garage technician that looks after all the tyres in the garage, to go and get the constructors’ trophy today,” Horner explained, as per

Verstappen’s win was actually his third consecutive win also at Spa-Francorchamps in particular, with the Dutchman being seemingly unstoppable at the historic venue.

He won from sixth on the grid and beat Sergio Perez by 22 seconds, in what was another Red Bull 1-2.

Verstappen now leads the Drivers’ Championship by a mammoth 125 points, with it being just a matter of time until he becomes a three-time World Champion.
