Max Verstappen Hurls Fresh Insult At Lewis Hamilton As F1 Stars Renew Bitter Rivalry

Published

Lewis Hamilton praised Charles Leclerc for his attitude in the battle between the two men during the last stretch of Formula 1’s British Grand Prix. However, the Englishman compared Leclerc’s driving style and sportsmanship to that of Max Verstappen, taking a shot at the current champion, who didn’t miss the opportunity to ironically respond to his Mercedes counterpart.

 

 

“Charles did a great job, what a great battle,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “He is a very sensible drive. Clearly a lot different to what I experienced last year.” When the press informed Verstappen about Hamilton’s comments, the Red Bull driver didn’t hesitate to respond in a sarcastic tone. “I think it’s great that, when you’re 37 years old, at some point you understand how to get to an apex,” Verstappen said, “He does learn, so that’s positive for the younger drivers: when you’re 37 you still stay always learning.

 

 

“You can clearly see it in the images, of course. Charles gave him less space than I did last year, so that says enough. Moreover, he received a penalty last year, so he should not talk about that.” The Red Bull driver led from start to finish with little challenge from the Ferrari cars. Ferarri Formula 1 boss Mattia Binotto said in the morning that Sainz and Leclerc “are free to fight, within limits”.

 

 

Carlos took note and at the start of the Austrian Grand Prix Sprint Race as he made a great outside pass on the Monegasque to take second place. Perhaps he had a bit too much ambition, which made him go for Max Verstappen into Turn 3, as he lost out to Leclerc on the exit.

 

 

The Ferrari pair then went toe-to-toe for the next few laps, but Leclerc won out as Verstappen drove away up the road to take a win in which he had no challengers. That means the Red Bull driver maintains his pole position for Sunday’s Austrian GP, and extends his lead in the Driver Standings too. “It was great to see the fans – a lot of smoke at the end!” Verstappen said. “It was alright, it was a decent race, a good pace at the beginning and I think after that we were very closely matched, so it was good. Like a sprint should go; quite flat out.

 

 

“I had a bit of a gap and after that it was similar in pace [with Ferrari, so I expect tomorrow it is going to be interesting battle again because the race tomorrow is going to be a lot longer, so it’s going to be quite tricky on tyres. “The car is good, just a few things to fine-tune but overall we are really competitive again this weekend.”

 

 

Lewis Hamilton was involved in the best battle in the race as he dropped from ninth to 11th and then moved behind Mick Schumacher. The fight between the Mercedes and Haas ensued as Schumacher defended brilliantly to keep Hamilton behind, but when the second Haas of Magnussen pulled away leaving Schumacher without DRS, Hamilton made it past. The biggest loser of the Sprint was Fernando Alonso who never even made it to the starting grid and will start at the back in the Alpine.
