Lewis Hamilton Calls out Weakness of Max Verstappen and Others

Defending Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton says he discovers ongoing remarks made by rival Max Verstappen “funny” and “a sign of weakness”.

Six-time world champion Hamilton gets the opportunity to rise to Michael Schumacher‘s record-breaking F1 record of seven drivers’ world titles this season in the event that he can effectively add to his ebb and flow dash of three successive title triumphs.

Max Verstappen and Red Bull are meaning to wreck Hamilton’s journey of adding more victories to his assortment by mounting a genuine title challenge in 2020. The Dutchman as of late said Hamilton is “one of the best out there” yet is “not god”.

Verstappen told reporters this month that “Lewis is very good. He is definitely one of the best out there, but he’s not God. Maybe God is with him, but he is not God.”

“When you can put the pressure on, of course, it is a lot harder for the guy in the lead. If you never really have pressure, you can drive at 97-98%. You never make mistakes, or maybe one weekend out of 21-22.”

He responded with a “Yes” when asked if he could beat Hamilton. He added that being able to do so “is very car-dependent.”

Lewis Hamilton says “its a sign of weakness”

Gotten some information about Verstappen’s jest in front of getting his first taste of driving Mercedes’ W11 challenger at the group’s dispatch occasion at Silverstone, Lewis Hamilton said “I find it funny seeing that. I have just always known to do my talking on the track. I tend to see that (kind of talking) as a sign of weakness.”

Lewis Hamilton said he is dazzled that his Mercedes group has kept up their inspiration to win again in the wake of scoring their 6th consecutive sweep of the championship titles last year.

This is my eighth year at the team. The buzz is the same every year. Everyone couldn’t be more excited, they couldn’t be more enthusiastic or more driven.

“And I’d say probably the most impressive thing is that [after] we’ve had the success, it could be quite easy for them to be laid back today.”

“Everyone’s focussed. There’s been so much work that’s done in the background to make sure that today runs smoothly. So I think everyone gets excited at this stage and just everyone seems refreshed, revamped and ready for the challenges ahead.”
