Jeremy Clarkson, 61, is no stranger to sharing his controversial thoughts and today was no different when he hit out about F1 stewards, who he claimed made the tournament “boring”. Stewards sparked reaction after penalising Lando Norris over an incident with Sergio Perez.

The British-Belgian racing driver was given a five-second time penalty after Sergio went off at the outside of turn four as he tried to overtake the McLaren.

Later in the race, Sergio received similar penalties for incidents involving Charles Leclerc.

In view of his 7.3 million followers, Jeremy slammed the stewards for their decision making.

He commented: “F1 stewards. You are ruining the sport. Please, just resign. Go home.”

Many Twitter users flocked to his post to share their thoughts.

One wrote: “It’s not real racing to push someone off the track otherwise nobody will ever try to go around the outside Lando was in the wrong.”

Defending the driver, the ex Top Gear star replied: B******t. @LandoNorris is a megastar.”

Another commented: “[Fernando] Alonso and [George] Russell were able to have a close battle without one pushing the other onto the gravel.

“The stewards did a decent job today imo.”(sic)

In response to another fan who said F1 was “boring”, Jeremy replied: “Because of the stewards.”

He followed up his post writing: “Anyone else thinking that @LandoNorris is the real deal?”

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen drove to victory today, leading every lap of the Austrian Grand Prix from pole position.

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, who came fourth, predicted his victory ahead of the race.

He told reporters: “Max is walking away with it right now and there is not really much we can do about it.”

The racer went on to take to his Instagram Stories to thank his fans for their support.

In view of his 22 million followers, he wrote: “It is times like these that we must stay vigilant, focused and determined.

“Giving up is never an option. We fight till the end.

“I want to thank all that came today to me and my team, for travelling all this way.

“I am truly grateful and want to send you love and positive energy.

“These past five races have been hard but I stay positive with the belief that I have in my team that we will fight back.
