Lewis Hamilton hints at Max Verstappen tyre ‘CONSPIRACY’ as title rival ‘deliberately’ locked up before Abu Dhabi pole

LEWIS HAMILTON hit back after seeing Max Verstappen draw first blood in their battle for the F1 crown. A barb about whether Verstappen’s error was actually done on purpose so he starts Sunday’s race on a different set of tyres to him. A conspiracy but no one locks up into Turn One and if you do it is not a big one. F1 rules state that drivers have to start the race on the same set of tyres they set their quickest lap in Q2. So while he will benefit from better pace off the line, he could be reeled in by Hamilton in the race as they are less durable and Verstappen will have to pit first. Completely different and a million times better I feel now than I did then.
