Verstappen: Hamilton does things 'not available for me'
Max Verstappen insists he will not be following five time world champion Lewis Hamilton out of the back of a plane any time soon. Hamilton recently shared that he had obtained his solo skydiving license as he enjoys the pre-season period before testing.
Asked if he too will be jumping out of planes soon, Verstappen told De Telegraaf newspaper: "At the moment certainly not."
Verstappen, 21, has clear number one status at Red Bull this year, with the team tipped to potentially take on Mercedes and Ferrari with its new works Honda power unit.
That is why the Dutch driver rules out skydiving.
"Lewis is of course already 34 years old," he said. "Of course I do not know what my life will look like in 13 years."
Verstappen said that with his five titles, Hamilton can afford to take extra life risks.
