When Lewis Hamilton was asked if the Belgian Grand Prix was too easy for Max Verstappen, the Briton answered with an Austin Powers reference.

There’s no denying that Max Verstappen is currently completely dominating Formula 1. It was especially evident at Spa, where he won the race by a significant margin, despite having a grid penalty at the start.

Asked if it was too easy for Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton used a reference from the movie Austin Powers where a Dutch villain Goldmember offers Powers ‘a smoke and a pancake’. The joke in the movie was referencing a stereotype about Dutch people and marijuana.
