Max Verstappen says in his discussion with Sky Sports, which resolved his boycott of the station, they came to the conclusion “that some things just weren’t the case”.

At the Mexican Grand Prix, Max Verstappen decided not to speak to Sky Sports and its affiliates, because long-time reporter Ted Kravitz said Lewis Hamilton was robbed at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Red Bull soon joined in to support their driver, and announced that the whole team will not be giving any statements to the broadcaster.

At that time it was not clear how long the boycott would last, but ahead of the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, Max Verstappen confirmed that the issue has been resolved and the boycott has been lifted.

In a talk with Dutch publication the AD, Verstappen revealed he discussed the situation with Sky Sports.

“You come to certain conclusions together, that some things just weren’t the case,“ the Dutch driver said.

“And in the end it can then be resolved very quickly.”

Verstappen also explained why they will not publicly reveal all of the details of what was said in their discussion.

“You don’t have to enter into that dialogue live on channel. People are then watching, there is no need for that at all,” he concluded.
