Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen didn’t even glance at each other in their pre-race media duties… the bitter F1 title rivals have nothing in common apart from a desire to claim the trophy that sat between them in Abu Dhabi

‘Clearly things don’t apply for everyone because what I did in terms of defending, two other guys also did and they didn’t get a mention or penalty,’ said Verstappen, alluding to last weekend’s fractious race in Saudi Arabia. As I said, other people do exactly the same thing and get nothing. ‘Why should I change when others are allowed to race like that?’ he reasoned. Asked if he was certain Verstappen would act fairly, Hamilton was non-committal, saying: ‘Er, I don’t put any energy towards that sort of thing. We never thought that we would be neck-and-neck going into the last race.’ Yes, but only a few days earlier, after the Saudi race, Hamilton had called Verstappen ‘crazy’.
