Lewis Hamilton snubs Max Verstappen by failing to mention his bitter rival as one of his toughest F1 competitors over the years… with the wound of last season’s controversial title defeat still raw for the Mercedes star

Lewis Hamilton snubbed Max Verstappen by pointedly failing to mention his arch-rival as one of the top drivers he has faced in his 299-race career. ‘It is difficult to say who has been the strongest competitor because every time you are against someone you are in a different place in your life,’ said Hamilton. And in terms of pure pace I would say Fernando (was the best). That wound is raw, as Hamilton highlighted by comparing him unfavourably to Charles Leclerc following the British Grand Prix. ‘Charles fought a great battle,’ said Hamilton, before referring to his previous collision with Verstappen at Silverstone.
