Verstappen: “There’s a giant lizard on the track!”

Formula 1 has often delivered some strange happening’s with various ‘creatures’ appearing on and around circuits over the years and the Singapore Grand Prix certainly delivered in that aspect in Saturday’s third free practice session.

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen made the statement “There’s a giant lizard on the track” to his pit crew during the third free practice session adding while laughing “I am not joking”.

The reply from the Red Bull crew was just as funny “You came face to face with Godzilla then”.

The commotion was due to what looked like a large Monitor Lizard, a common species in Singapore, running across the track in front of Verstappen at turn three.
