Hamilton’s stunning Verstappen jibe: “My teammates stronger than any of his” 

Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time world champion, believes that drivers such as Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg, Valtteri Bottas, and George Russell have posed a bigger challenge than Max Verstappen during his time at Red Bull. Hamilton states that Verstappen has comfortably outperformed his current teammate Sergio Perez, as well as Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon, with Daniel Ricciardo being his closest competitor since joining Red Bull in 2016. In an interview with Sky, Hamilton mentioned that he is not more impressed with Verstappen’s achievements than he was with previous world champions like Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, and Fernando Alonso. Hamilton believes that Red Bull’s overall team performance, including the car, driver, pit crew, and strategy, is exceptional. He also feels that the media has exaggerated Verstappen’s success compared to his own dominant periods, asserting that his previous teammates, including Bottas, have been stronger than Verstappen’s counterparts. Hamilton has signed a new two-year deal with Mercedes, driven by his desire to compete against Verstappen and achieve his “unfinished business” in Formula 1.
