Hamilton proves Verstappen wrong – refers to him by name

Max Verstappen recently said that he was told that Lewis Hamilton never refers to him by name. After the Mexican Grand Prix, Lewis referred to Max by his name.

In a recent interview with The Daily Mail, Max Verstappen talked about his rivalry with Lewis Hamilton, and said he was told the Briton doesn’t refer to him by name.

“People have told me that he doesn’t use my name,” Verstappen driver said.

“I was always taught that you have to respect what people have achieved in sport. I have no problem with what Lewis has achieved. He is one of the best ever.”

It seems that Verstappen was trying to imply that Lewis avoids using his name because he doesn’t respect him.

Perhaps, on occasion, when Lewis was explicitly asked to comment on Verstappen, he might have used the pronouns ‘he’ or ‘him’, but he has definitely used Max’s name numerous times.

As a matter of fact, immediately after the Mexican Grand Prix, Lewis used Max’s first name.

“Congratulations to Max, it is just great to be up here and separate these two [Red Bulls],” the Briton said in his parc fermé interview.

The whole statement by Verstappen is very strange, and it is interesting that he was immediately proven wrong.
