The suggestion that Hamilton is no better than many of his rivals comes on the eve of the Hungarian Grand Prix and will fuel the intense competition between the Mercedes driver and his younger Red Bull counterpart.

In an explosive interview in the current issue of Motor Sport magazine, Verstappen, who claimed a famous victory at Hockenheim last weekend, also took aim at F1 authorities claiming that there were too many rules which meant that drivers were not allowed to race hard. He goes on to defend contact at low speeds to ensure that races are exciting for fans.
Verstappen also refuses to dismiss rumours of a potential move to Mercedes which could have him partnering Hamilton as early as next season. Any move would be a huge loss to Red Bull after Christian Horner described his as currently being the “best in the world”.
