Verstappen's amazing gesture to Hamilton: 'Niki would be proud'

Max Verstappen warmly congratulated Lewis Hamilton after taking pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix and offered a touching gesture to the Mercedes man by telling him that Formula 1 legend Niki Lauda would have been proud of his efforts.

Mercedes' efforts in Monte Carlo have been coloured somewhat by this week's death of Lauda, who served as the team's non-executive chairman from 2013 until his passing.
