Verstappen 'not at war' with Hamilton for F1 title

Verstappen 'not at war' with Hamilton for F1 title

Max Verstappen has insisted he is not at "war" with Lewis Hamilton despite the hard-fought battle between the pair for this year's world championship title.

The Dutchman trails the Mercedes driver by 14 points after losing out in a strategic Spanish Grand Prix to go three-one down in race victories across the opening four races.

However, when asked if he was ready for war with Hamilton, Verstappen said: “Let’s not use the term ‘war’.

"Let’s just keep it competitive in a nice way but of course, we will fight hard but they will as well which is good for the sport but I like it too.”

In each of the first four races, Verstappen and Hamilton have come close to contact in side-by-side battles.

Commenting on the emotion of finally being in a competitive position against Mercedes, Verstappen added: “I think it’s exciting and I’m of course looking forward to every single battle out there.

"With the championship fight, we finally have a car that is capable of having decent results every single weekend.

"If that is fighting for first or third or second is going to depend on the track which is a bit difficult to project at the moment but it is really enjoyable and I think so far this year we have had some good results.

“Also from my side, I am happy but things can always go better on both sides, from the car and myself. It is never good enough, even if I would have won all the races so far.”
