Lewis Hamilton was recently asked a bunch of great questions by kids while on NOS Jeugdjournaal – a Dutch news programme for children.
In Mercedes’ 2021 Italian GP Andrew Shovlin and James Vowles talk about Lewis Hamilton’s poor sprint race start, his crash with Max Verstappen and more!
Sir Jackie Stewart says Max Verstappen got off easy, with a three-place grid penalty, for causing an accident in which “Lewis could have died”.
In 2022 a Red Bull affiliated driver – Alex Albon will drive for a Mercedes powered team – Williams. Naturally, this raises some concerns.
Damon Hill says it might not have been a “conscious thing”, but at one point Max Verstappen decided he was “not going to let” Lewis Hamilton beat him.
Häkkinen says the “collision between Lewis and Max was avoidable, and he wants results to decide the championship, “not the number of accidents”.
Former F1 driver John Watson says the collision between Lewis and Max was a result of Max’s “poor judgement, based on frustration, and maybe anger”.
Former F1 driver Christijan Albers says Lewis Hamilton took “the high road every time” with Max Verstappen, but since Silverstone he had to “draw the line”.
Just after it was announced he will not be driving for Mercedes after 2021, Valtteri Bottas had a perfect weekend at the Italian GP.
