Max Verstappen says Lewis Hamilton is SCARED of him as he taunts title rival before winner-takes-all Abu Dhabi showdown

COCKY Max Verstappen taunted bitter F1 title rival Lewis Hamilton by saying: He’s afraid of me. Verstappen said: “I make him nervous if he sees me in his mirrors. And when quizzed if Hamilton was afraid of him, Verstappen replied: “He will never admit that. But while Verstappen’s car is on soft tyres, Hamilton’s Mercedes will wear medium rubber. Hamilton, 36, who was booed by Dutch fans in parc ferme, hailed Verstappen’s qualifying performance, saying: “It was a fantastic lap from him.”. Verstappen claims Hamilton drove into him “on purpose” at the British Grand Prix in a high-speed shunt which put the Dutchman in hospital. Hamilton suffered a sore neck at Monza after Verstappen launched his Red Bull on TOP of his Merc. And Verstappen was punished by stewards in Saudi Arabia after Hamilton crashed into him. Verstappen will be crowned champion if neither driver scores points on Sunday as he has won nine GPs to Hamilton’s eight.
