Fury, however, has defended Verstappen from the criticism he has faced and wished both drivers well for the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
Speaking on an Instagram Story, Fury said: "Just been doing a bit of reading up about the F1 rivalry between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen and how Max is being made out to be a bit of a 'bad boy' in the media.
"I know how it feels to be treated horribly by the media. It is not nice, you know, especially when you are young and ambitious and you want to win.
"Give him a bit of a break, he is trying his best.
"Good luck to both men in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. This rivalry reminds me of James Hunt and Niki Lauda racing for the title. Who is going to win it boys? Come on the boys!"
