Ex-F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone slams Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes for ‘not playing fair’ with treatment of Max Verstappen

LEWIS HAMILTON and Mercedes are ‘bullying’ Max Verstappen and ‘not paying fair’, according to former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. Hamilton insisted Verstappen had ‘brake-tested’ him, while Verstappen maintained he was simply trying to let the Brit past. “Max has more than a race to confront as he has them too on his back because they are bullying him and not playing fair. “Max has had a few years of racing but has not had years in the streets like Lewis. With the pair level on points but Verstappen having one more race win than Hamilton, essentially the Brit simply needs to better his world title rival in Abu Dhabi this weekend. If the pair both crash out then Verstappen will be crowned the world champion.
