The rivalry between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen has made the collision of the two drivers at Monza one of the talking points of the season so far. One of the controversies surrounding the incident was that Max Verstappen did not check Lewis Hamilton after the accident.
In Max’s defense, the Red Bull driver had come out and explained that Hamilton’s engine was still running when he got out of the car and tried to reverse. At this point, it was more than obvious that Hamilton was doing fine and Max didn’t feel concerned with the British after such an intense crash.
When speaking of the incident, Hamilton took a different view from when speaking to Channel 4.
“Many of us who would be called high performers actually perform because we have this fine sensorium. The tyrants and the dull ones don’t have these skills.” – TotoProud to be part of this brilliant @autosport piece on the importance of mental health I don’t have these skills. “- TotoProud to be part of this brilliant @autosport article on the importance of mental health
” I have he told Channel 4 about the crash. “We had this crash and of course I felt it physically. Have you seen Cool Runnings? In the end, they crash the bob, they get off, they say they have to race quit, that’s my mentality. “The car is on top of me, how do I get back into the race?” he added. “And I didn’t expect him to look after me. I would have probably checked who I ended up with, but I’m older. “
I always try to be respectful of Max: Lewis Hamilton
Speaking of his relationship with Max, Hamilton reflected on the different attitudes between the two as they pursue the championship glory. While Lewis has an eighth world title in his sights, it would be a first for Max.
“I try to be respectful of him, but I’m also a fighter, I don’t give in in the racing scenario,” said Hamilton. “I try to be sensible because at the end of the day 2000 people rely on me to be sensible, to bring the car home in one piece and it’s not about me, it’s about us all winning the championship.” . ”
Interestingly, while Hamilton was the louder driver of the two, it was the younger contender who had a better season so far. Lewis Hamilton, who arguably had better machines in the last six races, should be considered the favorite for the time being.
Will the reigning world champion win an eighth record championship with the means at his disposal? We’ll have to wait the next six races to find out.
