Formula 1 News: Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are in a tightly-knitted competition for the title this year. It has definitely led to several conflicts between the two parties.

The two drivers off the car try to keep the sportsmanship alive and give fistbumps and hugs to each other. Though, at times their rivalry has reflected on social media too.

Especially after their Silverstone collision, when Verstappen openly criticized Hamilton for celebrating the win in Britain after giving the former a 52G crash. The war of words extended in Italy.

Yet another collision brought on conflicting statements from the two ends. Hamilton complained about neck pain after Red Bull’s rear tyre landed on his head. But Verstappen soon made a dig by questioning how his rival travelled for MetGala with the pain.

The above description reveals that the two drivers don’t share a cordial relationship. However, the other Verstappen- Jos Verstappen, also competed against another seven-time world champion.

And according to the senior Verstappen, his family has an opposite relation to the Schumachers compared to Hamilton. However, Jos confesses that he respects Hamilton, even if he thinks he had the “fastest car” for too long.

“Michael and I had good connections,” Jos told the Daily Mail. “We met privately too [the Verstappens and Schumachers vacationed together]. He transformed a little bit at the races, but he would still be friendly.

“Lewis does it his own style, which you can’t say is incorrect because he wins a lot. Yes, he has had teammates, but he has been in the right conditions. He made the right choice to go to Mercedes and has had the quickest car for a long time. But he is solid, for sure. I respect him as a driver. The rest.”

Formula 1 News: Max Verstappen is what he is

Meanwhile, at times, Verstappen has acted blunt and spoken his mind without censoring his words. This behaviour has often been seen as upfront and rude. But his father claims that this is how the Red Bull ace is.

However, he justifies his son’s by applauding the 24-year-old’s apolitical stance. Which Hamilton is totally opposite, and for Jos, it became a point of criticism for the Briton.

“Max is how he is. Some people like it. Some persons don’t. He says what he believes but doesn’t get included in political topics, such as what is occurring in other countries, as Lewis does.

“Max sees it as a matter of doing a career as a sportsman and keeping it at that. Everybody does it their way and that is Max’s way.”
