After watching his son win the Dutch Grand Prix in front of an ecstatic home crowd, it’s been revealed Jos Verstappen was treated in hospital for reported a ‘stabbing pain’ in his abdomen.
As reported by De Telegraaf, the former F1 driver was transported via helicopter to the hospital in Roermond following the dominant display from his son Max to regain the lead of the Formula One standings.
The newspaper reported that initial thoughts at the circuit suggested his gall bladder or kidney stones.
However, they go on to add that the 49-year-old was treated for inflamed intestines and was given antibiotics.
Replying on Twitter to the reports from De Telegraaf, Jos replied, “I am fine. Weeds don’t perish.”

After a commanding victory in Zandvoort, Verstappen took control of the championship once again from Lewis Hamilton, taking a three-point lead heading into the Italian Grand Prix for Red Bull.
It was double joy for Verstappen on the podium as he celebrated in front of a sea of orange at F1’s first race in over 30 years at Zandvoort.
“As you can hear already, it’s just incredible,” began Verstappen.
“The expectations were very high going into the weekend and it’s never easy to fulfil that.
“But I’m of course so happy to win here, to take the lead in the championship. It’s an amazing day. Just the whole crowd. It’s incredible.

“The start was very important, I think we did that well, and then of course Mercedes tried to make it very difficult for us but we countered them all the time really well.”
“We can be really pleased with the whole team performance today”
Meanwhile, seven-time world champion Hamilton was left frustrated at Mercedes after claiming they put him on the wrong strategy.
“I definitely think that wasn’t our best strategy,” he told Sky F1.
“But it was really hard out there, at the end of the day they were just too quick, and we’ll take it offline and try figure out how we can improve it.
“But I just think we stopped too early in that second part, and it had just been a point where we [went] through traffic, I lost a good second from them, and I needed time to close that gap up before we did a stop.
“And then I came out behind traffic, so I couldn’t actually implement, and I don’t know how they didn’t see that.
“But it is what it is, and we worked through it.
“Congrats to Max, they put an upgrade on the last race and they’re quick.”
