The title fight for the 2021 championship has never been this intense between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. As the two title contenders go wheel to wheel each race weekend.
So let's take a look at some of the heated moments between Hamilton and Verstappen.
The duo made contact on the second lap of the 2018 Bahrain GP, with Verstappen suffering a left-rear puncture and subsequently retiring from the race. After the race, Max blamed the reigning champion for the collision. While Hamilton hit back and said Verstappen must cut out his errors.
During the opening lap at Silverstone, Lewis Hamilton's left-front wheel tangles with Verstappen's rear-right at Copse corner. As a result, the Dutchman went flying into the tires barrier, in an impact that measured at 51G.
Speaking in public for the first time after the Silverstone crash, Verstappen felt the victory celebration by Hamilton after the British Grand Prix was “really disrespectful” considering he was in the hospital after being knocked out of the race.
During the post-qualifying press conference at the Hungarian GP, Max Verstappen was frustrated to continued questioning about his Silverstone collision with his arch-rival, Lewis Hamilton.
After the second lap collision with Verstappen at the 2018 Bahrain GP, Hamilton endured some damages to his car and as a result the Briton finished P3. And while watching the incident before the podium ceremony Hamilton called the Dutchman a 'd**khead'.
