Lewis Hamilton insists he would never fight dirty to win the world title after Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff suggested the defending champion would drive Max Verstappen off the track in pursuit of glory

Lewis Hamilton has laughed off the suggestion that he would drive Max Verstappen off the track in a desperate attempt to win the world title. Ahead of this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix, Hamilton said: ‘Firstly, I have not read what Toto said but I highly doubt he would insinuate that. I have never won a championship in that way and I wouldn’t want to. Hamilton also highlighted his fears at how the tightest fight of recent years could be distorted by Covid-19. A positive test would potentially rule one of the two contenders out of a race or more. ‘I have been through two (non-F1) events this year, both where everyone has been vaccinated and PCR tested before they go,’ said Hamilton, who contracted the virus last year and missed a race in Bahrain.
