‘They are BULLYING Max’: Former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone hits out at Mercedes for ‘not playing fair’ in Lewis Hamilton’s battle with Verstappen and claims they are inflicting a ‘psychological game’ on the Dutchman

Former Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has accused Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton of ‘bullying’ title rival Max Verstappen in the race for the drivers’ championship. Ecclestone, 91, claims Hamilton has been using his wealth of experience to ‘push down’ on Verstappen before accusing Mercedes chief Toto Wolff of influencing race directors. ‘Max has had a few years of racing but has not had years in the streets like Lewis.’. Ecclestone also exclusively told Sportsmail that he believes racing fans would like to see a new world champion, given how Hamilton and Mercedes have dominated in recent years. ‘It is difficult to say which one will prevail,’ Ecclestone told Sportsmail when asked about who will prevail in the title race. Ecclestone also revealed that he hasn’t spoken to Hamilton for months, but insists he respects what the Brit is doing.
