Why? Well, it’s because the Dutch national soccer team crashed out of the tournament after losing against Argentina in penalties. A heartbreaking match for every Dutch supporter.

Witnessing this heartbreak remotely from a mobile screen was Max Verstappen. Why on a mobile screen, you might ask? Verstappen was facing the inconvenience of watching his team play on a small screen because of this F1 event. We are talking about the FIA Gala.

The Dutchman couldn’t miss the match and watched it on a mobile phone during the F1 award ceremony. Verstappen used Kelly Piquet’s bag she was carrying for the Gala for support and streamed the match on his mobile phone. Verstappen picked up the most important award of the night but, we have a feeling he would much rather be home watching his team play.
