Max Verstappen says he was told that Lewis Hamilton doesn’t refer to him by name, and adds he was “always taught that you have to respect what people have achieved in sport”.

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,” the Dutch 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.

“I know it is not only the car he has been driving. That helps, we all know that, but you still have to beat your teammate and Lewis has done that consistently.

“I think you have to acknowledge the person has done an amazing job as well,” Verstappen concluded.

The whole statement sounds a bit strange, as perhaps when Lewis is explicitly asked to comment on Verstappen, he might be using the pronouns ‘he’ or ‘him’, but that is definitely not unusual.
