Verstappen admits aggressive Raikkonen blocking was in retaliation (link)

“I’m not going to say: ‘come on through’. But all that happened after Turn 1. If Turn 1 hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have been so aggressive and pushed Raikkonen out like that.” – Max Verstappen

If someone blames you for aggressive driving,  driving aggressively in retaliation is basically proving their point. Max will grow up, and he’s going to be great when he does. Remember how erratic Lewis Hamilton was in his first year?

Lewis Hamilton now has 3 fresh engines for the rest of the season (link)

While Nico Rosberg did a fantastic job of winning in Belgium, Lewis’s side of the garage did a masterful job of capitalizing on the engine upgrade rules. By taking 3 new Turbo/MGU-H units (45 grid spot penalty) and a new Internal Combustion Engine (5 grid spots) and a new MGU-K unit(5 more grid spots) he essentially is left with 3 brand new power units for the remainder of the season and gives him an advantage for the rest of the season over Nico Rosberg. BBC does a decent job of explaining this in the link above.
