Horner warns of more Verstappen Hamilton drama to come

Horner warns of more Verstappen Hamilton drama to come

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has warned of further incidents to come between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton given the racing nature of both F1 drivers.

Verstappen and Mercedes driver Hamilton have clashed on track a number of times this year, notably with heavy incidents at Silverstone and most recently at Monza.

On each occasion, the blame for the collisions has been only "predominantly" placed on a driver, with the suggestion from the stewards being both could have done more to avoid contact.

With eight races remaining, and with the F1 title on the line, Horner feels the no-holds-barred attitude from both will continue.

"Obviously, we want it to be a really competitive, clean run-in to the end of the season," said Horner.

"But inevitably, when the drivers are starting next to each other so often and they're racing at venues that are very, very tight, Max is a no quarter [given] kind of guy.

"Lewis has demonstrated that he doesn't want to give anything either and when you get two racers of that mentality, you get incidents."

Verstappen holds a five-point lead over Hamilton in the drivers' standings but will start at the back of the grid in Russia on Sunday as a result of taking a power unit penalty.

Asked if he expected further collisions going forward, Horner added: "They're racers and they're going to race so to say that they're never going to touch each other again in the next eight races...

"I doubt very much Toto [Wolff, Mercedes team principal] has that much control over Lewis and we don't over Max. It's down to them in the car, racing for the biggest trophy in motor racing.

"Monza was unfortunate. I think that it was a dramatic-looking incident at slow speeds. It was neither driver wanting to concede and the end result was what we saw."

Lewis gets away with everything. He was the back car in both previous crashes. But Max is blamed. Red Bull get penalty for too quick tire change but a few weeks later Mercedes gets congratulated. Lewis knocked his pit stop member flying and not fined for dangerous driving. He never even askes as to his well being. Same as he never even bothered how seriously he injured Max in 1st crash. He is a wimp!

Try to add punctuation marks to your posts...

And yes, we all know Max didnt ask about Lewis as Lewis was actively putting his car in reverse and kep trying to drive backwards (which is indeed a very dangerous move knowing another car will start sliding while Max was getting out of his car)

It's his right to try and extricate his car and continue. That's why there was ZERO steward inquiry to him doing so. Max's car was on top of him. It's not his job to wonder about Max getting out of his car. You Maxers just think the sun revolves around Max and everyone needs to acquiesce to him at all times. That's delusional. Max has won nothing yet. Lewis is the champion. That's the actual order of things.

Guys like you are what make these forums hilarious. A 7x champion that's dueled with Alonzo as a teammate and against Kimi is a wimp? You must have started watching F1 a week ago lol. I am old enough to remember Max getting a talking to from ALL THE DRIVERS for moving under braking, which he was FAMOUS for his first few years. Guys like you want the field to pull aside and just let Max through. You're Max fans but not F1 fans lol
