Make no mistake, this F1 title rivalry is one for the ages! Hamilton and Verstappen’s dramatic collision at Silverstone was as fierce as Prost and Senna or Schumacher and Hill… in 96 seconds the relationship soured beyond repair – now the fight is ON

Seconds after Max Verstappen was sent flying into the tyre wall at Copse Corner by a fiercely determined Lewis Hamilton, it was hard not to cast the mind back to 1990 when another two title contenders, brimming with dislike, thrashed it out for supremacy. And this is as much a rivalry between Horner and Wolff, the teams Mercedes and Red Bull, as it is for Verstappen and Hamilton. With Hamilton chasing history and Verstappen ready to dethrone the F1 monarch, it is all set up for a nail-biting second half of the season. Hamilton bounced over the kerbs, breaking a key part of his front wing which cost him dearly, with Verstappen going on to win by 22 seconds. Hamilton took an inside line at Copse, caught Verstappen and the rest was history. His rivalry with Hamilton never had the edge or the bitterness that this one with Verstappen seems to possess. At least Verstappen and Hamilton won’t bury the hatchet no matter what gets trotted out publicly.
