MARTIN SAMUEL: Lewis Hamilton’s feud with Max Verstappen is GREAT for Formula One… after the rivals clashed spectacularly at Silverstone, the rematch in Budapest is capturing the imagination just like Ayrton Senna’s famous rivalry with Alain Prost

Lewis Hamilton was five years old the day Ayrton Senna took out Alain Prost at Suzuka turn one. There is one driver with the best car, and the rest can barely stay in touch. Red Bull have the best car, but not by so much that there is no race. Mercedes have arguably the best driver: Hamilton, the last man to win a drivers’ championship in a car that did not also win the constructors’ prize. The drivers have little time for each other, the teams are at daggers drawn. ‘You can say I’m an aggressive driver but I don’t think I am. ‘I felt for the first time that I didn’t stand alone in the sport,’ he said.
