Former F1 driver Johnny Herbert says he is “perplexed” by Max Verstappen’s recent comments in which he dismissed his rivalry with Lewis Hamilton in favour of Charles Leclerc.

In a recent talk with Sky Italia, Max Verstappen basically dismissed his 2021 title rivalry with Lewis Hamilton in favour of his current fight with Charles Leclerc.

Sky Sports F1’s Johnny Herbert says he finds Verstappen’s comments “disappointing”.

“[It’s] disappointing actually in many respects,” the Briton said.

“He seems to have sort of just dismissed Lewis straight away, and then he was straight onto Charles and Ferrari the battle they’re having.

“I thought he was enjoying the battle they were having on track [in 2021], but clearly there, he wasn’t enjoying it at all.

“But I don’t understand why his comments would be so negative towards Lewis and the battle that they had last year.

“I’m quite perplexed,” Herbert concluded.
