After Max Verstappen and Red Bull decided to boycott Sky Sports because Ted Kravitz said Lewis Hamilton was “robbed” in 2021, Martin Brundle said he fully supports his colleague.

On Saturday reports started coming in saying that Max Verstappen is refusing to talk to Sky Sports and its affiliated channels at the Mexican Grand Prix, after long-time reporter Ted Kravitz said Lewis Hamilton has been “robbed” of the 2021 title.

Since December of last year, Kravitz has been very outspoken about the unfairness of the controversial decisions made at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which prevented Hamilton from winning his eighth world title.

The exact comment that has ‘broken the camel’s back’ for Verstappen was made after the 2022 United States Grand Prix, and you can read it in full here.

The boycott then got extended to the whole Red Bull team, who refused to talk to the broadcaster for the remainder of the race weekend.

Now, Sky Sports’ Martin Brundle says he fully supports his colleague.

“For the avoidance of doubt my friend and colleague for the past 26 years Ted Kravtiz has my full support,” Brundle wrote on social media.

“Face-to-face dialogue is the only way to sort out issues and disputes in the relentless crucible of the F1 paddock.

“We all have opinions and different jobs to do, that’s life,” the Briton concluded.
