After years, the Dutchman Max Verstappen has finally stepped out of the shadow of the British Lewis Hamilton and has a lead of 12 points ahead of the final five events of the prestigious series of the fastest four laps.

In this context, there is talk of an excessive rivalry between the Red Bull driver and the long-standing leader and Mercedes.

This allegedly resulted in several not only verbal contradictions, but also deliberately caused collisions between the two rivals on the high prizes. Seven-time world champion Hamilton has a different opinion.

According to the 36-year-old winner of the round of hundreds of grand prizes, the victory achieved in a punitive way in order to cause damage to the opponent is not worth it.

“I want to win, but only with my own skill behind the wheel, determination and hard work during the race and in preparation for them,” added Hamilton.

Wolff claims that if the overall situation remains balanced until the last race on December 12 in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, Hamilton and Verstappen will compete there in the style of who in the manner of Alain Prost’s once great fights with Ayrton Senn.

“If it develops in such a way that the winner of the world championship is decided by the last races, I will go hard against each other. The one in front will have to reckon with the fact that the opponent will try to avoid him as much as possible, “added Wolf.
