Hamilton Alludes To Coolness With Verstappen
It appears if F1’s Lewis Hamilton’s relationship with rival Max Verstappen is a cool one. With the championship battle between the pair a tight race, especially following their collisions at Monza and Silverstone, Hamilton was asked this week whether the events of the season had put strain on their relationship.
The Brit replied by saying that there really wasn’t all that much to say as there isn’t too much communication going on between the two. He said while some F1 drivers hang about with one another more than others, he himself isn’t particularly close with anybody on the grid. He said the extent of this “hanging out” for him is a quick “hi” when passing in the passageways.
With Hamilton now in a heated chase for his fifth consecutive world title, it stands to reason that he would be a great deal more focused on what happens on the actual track. He’s now chasing a six-point deficit following his fifth-place finish at Istanbul Park in Turkey.
Hamilton emerged from that race an angry and frustrated figure after team Mercedes made the sort of call the Brit would have liked to avoid with his propensity for taking risks.
Good news for the Mercedes driver ahead of Sunday’s US Grand Prix is the team’s tradition of reigning victorious in Austin. So much so, that a Mercedes has dominated pole position in each of the past six events, and with Hamilton leading the way with five of eight titles won at the Texas track.
