All in the F1 closely follow the dispute that the English Lewis Hamilton and the Dutch Max Verstappen maintain for the title, more after the incidents that starred in the Great Britain GP e Italy. On this subject, the Austrian Toto Wolff, head honcho in Mercedes; and English Christian horner, Head of Red Bull.
“They are both fighting for the title and you cannot expect them to wear velvet gloves. That is why I think we are going to see more hard times ... "said Wolff, during Friday's press conference in Sochi, scene of Russian GP.
“I agree, they are runners… They will be together at a press conference and they will say that they will never touch each other again for the next eight races; but I doubt that Toto has that control over Lewis and we over Max. It is up to them… They are competing for the most important trophy in motorsports ”, Horner agreed.
“They know what it does. If both wanted to avoid collisions, we would have fewer collisions. If they do not avoid collisions, it is because they feel that it is correct not to give the space. And if so then we will have more incidents. We are not sitting in cars "added the Hamilton boss.
While Horner admitted: “Obviously we want it to be a fair fight… Inevitably when the drivers start side by side so often there are more risks. Max is a guy who gives no quarter; Lewis has shown that he does not want to give up on anything either and when you have two riders with that mentality, you have incidents. "
