Max Verstappen was asked how it feels to fight Charles Leclerc, compared to fighting Lewis Hamilton during the 2021 season.

Considering how fierce the battles between Verstappen and Hamilton have been in 2021, the Dutch driver was asked to compare them to his on-track encounters with Leclerc.
“You know, every driver is of course different to fight against,” Verstappen said.
