Mark Webber is one of those pundits who knows both the feel of the race and the drivers’ relationship. The former Red Bull Racing participant shares his own opinion on the battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. He has made such a clear statement, however, that the entire conflict can be considered exhausted.
“It’s brilliant. It’s exactly what we want” – M. Webber
“I think it was one of the best first laps we’ve seen in a long time. It’s been coming, and they’ve had some brilliant wheel-to-wheel battles – Barcelona, Imola, Bahrain. We all knew this was coming. Bring on more of it.
“The sense of occasion at Silverstone was just extraordinary, and it was one of the best Grand Prix I’ve been to in a long time. The fans, 120,000 there on race day. The two big boys are in the front row.
“A brilliant first lap – they just missed each other in Turn 1 on the exit, wheel-to-wheel on the run to Brooklands, and the obviously Lewis had a go into Copse and it didn’t quite work out.
“Every race is important now and inevitably there will be some more carbon fibre between the pair of them going into the air,” he added.
“But happy days, that’s what we watch the sport for. Two of the best duking it out.”
PlanetF1 publishes the comments and we are broadly in agreement. Perhaps someone should have said that Mark Webber accepted the mission!
A few days ago, the FIA rejected the Red Bull team’s request to review Lewis Hamilton’s dangerous driving behavior at the Silverstone Grand Prix. Conflict, which caused a wave of outrage on social media affecting both sides of Formula One fans, is being dropped.
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen forget the accident and agree not to agree. We cannot to say the same about their the team leaders, the tense atmosphere continues there.
Attention! Race Trend completely agrees and supports all statements of the Red Bull and Mercedes F1 teams against racism.
