Sir Jackie Stewart rips into ‘cocky’ Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen for ‘overdoing it’ in their F1 title battle – and claims the Red Bull driver would have DIED if his Silverstone accident had happened in his era

Max Verstappen would have been killed from his Silverstone crash with Lewis Hamilton had it happened 50 years ago, according to Sir Jackie Stewart. The Formula One legend believes the fierce title rivals Hamilton and Verstappen ‘are both overdoing it’ this season and branded the pair ‘cocky’ at the British Grand Prix in the summer. ‘The accident that happened at Silverstone – in my time he [Verstappen] would have died. In an increasingly heated world championship duel the two drivers both accused the other of being in the wrong after the race, with Hamilton saying Verstappen ‘knew what was going to happen, but he still did it.’.
