Hamilton ‘not going to give Max an ounce of oxygen’ amid F1 success – Brundle
Lewis Hamilton expressed in an interview that he is not more impressed by Max Verstappen than other F1 world champions, suggesting that Verstappen’s success has been exaggerated. He also questioned the caliber of Verstappen’s Red Bull teammates compared to his own past teammates, such as Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg, and Valtteri Bottas. Martin Brundle, a fellow Sky pundit, noted that Hamilton is unwilling to give any credit or recognition to Verstappen. Naomi Schiff added that Red Bull seems to agree with Hamilton’s viewpoint, given their frequent changes in the second seat and their expectations for Sergio Perez. However, Brundle believes that Verstappen’s accomplishments should not be underestimated, highlighting the mental resilience required to consistently perform at a high level in different conditions.
