“[Verstappen] did everything he had to do in 2021,” Lewis added.
“So why should I have a problem with him? He performed and delivered every weekend, nobody can take that away from him.”
However, the Briton also added he cannot speak for Verstappen when it comes to their relationship.
“He is a lot younger, so maybe he has a problem with me. But I am not sure about that and I actually assume not.
“Although I can’t speak for him,” Hamilton concluded.
