Tempers boiled over on live TV when Hulkenberg blasted his rival’s sportsmanship
KEVIN MAGNUSSEN told F1 rival Nico Hulkenberg to ‘suck his b***s’ following a furious bust-up in the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Hulkenberg was stuck behind the Haas driver in 11th but attempted to overtake him with nine laps to go.
Magnussen had other ideas, however, and forced Hulkenberg onto the grass that earned the Dane a five-second time penalty.
And after the race the pair nearly came to blows over the incident when Hulkenberg labelled his rival ‘unsporting’.
He branded Magnussen as “once again the most unsporting driver” to which he replied on live TV: “Suck my b***s, honey.”
And speaking to NBC after the race, Hulkenberg added: “I congratulated him for being the most unsporting driver of the whole grid once again.
“When it comes to racing, he’s just nasty.
“Hard defending is fine but when he does this, it’s just ruthless and sending people into the wall.
