FAN FOOTAGE of Max Verstappen's crash during the British Grand Prix on Sunday reveals just how brutal the incident was.

Amateur photographers were sat just behind the fence and were scattered with debris as the Red Bull driver crashed into a tyre wall.

Verstappen, 23, suffered a high-speed crash after colliding with Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone's famous Copse Corner.
