With the 2021 season of the F1 in its final stretch and with the titles of Drivers and Constructors without owners, it is still logical to think that the battle will be fierce between the only candidates for those crowns, Max Verstappen and your team Red Bull y Lewis Hamilton y Mercedes. That is why he does not miss some "hot" statements by these protagonists, such as those made by Verstappen himself and his boss, Christian horner.
Both reacted - in their own way - to the claim made by Mercedes for the maneuver that Verstappen made to Hamilton on lap 48 of the San Pablo Grand Prix when the Dutchman went off the line of Turn 4 at Interlagos to prevent the English from passing him.
La International Automobile Federation, which had already rejected that it was an unsportsmanlike maneuver, re-examined the case at the beginning of the weekend of the Qatar Grand Prix at the request of the German team, but rejected it.
“Of course you can see that his true nature comes out. It's not my team, of course, so I don't have to deal with it, but it's when you show your true intentions and show who you are. " Verstappen said of the claim Mercedes made.
“It is interesting to see how people react to pressure, how they react when challenged. So far it is the most intense political battle for the title that has unfolded in our era in this sport ”, Horner admitted.
And then he referred to Toto wolff, responsible for the German team. “There is no relationship with him, there is competition. There is respect for what Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton have accomplished, but I don't need to go out to dinner with Toto. I don't need to kiss her ass. Other team leaders may need it ", culminated the director of the Austrian squad.
