A Viaplay reporter for Dutch TV was in the middle of interviewing Verstappen around ten minutes before the start of the race.

Sky Sports cameras were primed with their own reporter Rachel Brookes ready to conduct an interview with the three-time F1 champion as he entered the grid.

Cameras then picked up the stunning moment a security guard walked up to the journalist and pulled him away from Verstappen.

The clip went viral on social media with fans finding it hilarious.

One fan said: “THAT VIAPLAY REPORTER GETTING DRAGGED 😭 omfg.”

A second said: “Lol why was he getting dragged like that 😭.”

Another said: “Rumour has it he was never seen again.”

A fourth said: “This had me crying 😂.”

A fifth added: “The way Max just waves as he’s dragged off 👋”

One fan suggested the lack of a pink sticker, which indicates a reporter is allowed on track, was what led to him being pulled back.

A second said: “I get he didn’t have a pass but he could’ve been a bit nicer. No need to manhandle him like that.”

Verstappen, 26, won the race just 0.7 seconds ahead of Lando Norris, while Charles Leclerc completed the top three – Ferrari‘s first podium at the track since Michael Schumacher.

The Red Bull driver described himself as “driving on ice” as Norris came close to hunting him down in the closing laps.
