Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff and Red Bull team boss Christian Horner have been involved in a war of words for the past several weeks.
After Azerbaijan Grand Prix qualifying Hamilton and Verstappen jokingly agreed their differences should be settled in the ring.
“We should get them in the ring,” Hamilton said.
“Yeah, I think the weight, the weight division is a bit of a problem. Like in the height. I mean, the reach…!” Verstappen replied.
“They’re the same weight, just different heights,” added Lewis.
“I mean, I’m all for a ring anyway, even in Formula 1 instead of penalties, so that’d be great!” continued Verstappen.

“It’s Formula 1, it’s a lot of stakes involved. So everyone wants to win, everyone is competitive. So I guess it’s just a natural thing.
“And it’s good for people to read right? Bit of fire behind it,” concluded the Dutch driver.
After that, Hamilton then gave his serious opinion of the two key figures in modern Formula 1.
“I think we got naturally the two top leaders of teams,” the Briton said.
“And they’ve both contributed hugely to the success of both teams, and great, great leaders. And that’s gonna go head to head because we are head to head in this type of battle.
“So yeah, we generally just like to do our talking on the tracks. So we’re just keeping our heads down.”
