Why Max Verstappen Is F1 fans’ Favorite, Jeremy Clarkson delighted

Who is this charismatic man in the photo? It is Jeremy Clarkson. His passion for cars goes through all the things he does as a journalist. Mr Clarkson is probably best known as a broadcaster for Top Gear, but he also writes about the hottest topics with humor and ease. Fortunately, he also follows Formula 1 with interest, especially Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton’s battle for the world title. Thus Jeremy Clarkson fully explained why Max Verstappen is F1 fans’ favorite. The talented journalist has his own point of view that we have to share with you.

The Sun columnist is not for the first time provocative, but always full of reason and his own point of view. Last time, after the Hungarian Grand Prix 2021, Clarkson rushed on Lewis Hamilton and claimed that the Mercedes driver needed “a smack.” Jeremy said that “Hamilton spent most of last week’s thrilling race on the radio claiming that Fernando Alonso was cheating. And then when Lewis finishes in third place, he flopped about on the podium claiming he has ‘long Covid’. This seems to be another way of saying “Please ignore Esteban Ocon”. Nice shot!

Mr Clarkson answers in detail the long-standing question why Max Verstappen is F1’s fan favorite. Lewis Hamilton holds the record in Formula 1 – 103 wins since his debut in 2007. Max Verstappen holds another record – as the youngest Formula 1 Grand Prix winner and youngest Formula 1 champion. He won the Spanish Grand Prix on his debut for Red Bull Racing in 2016. Nevertheless, Max Verstappen almost won the hearts of F1 fans, but by what? Here Jeremy Clarkson’ thoughts.

Every race weekend, Lewis Hamilton gets out of his car and thanks the crowd – presumably hoping we at home can’t hear them booing.


“It happens everywhere he goes, whether he wins or loses.
“People love Max Verstappen but they’ve taken a noisy dislike to Lewis. The problem is that Lewis has changed.


“When he first came on to the scene, he was bright and talented and normal – and everyone loved him. But then he decided to go woke and right-on and more politically correct than a student union AGM.


“Trying to fix an entire planet by buying locally produced raspberries and insulating your loft is like trying to cure a cancer patient by trimming his eyebrows.


“The problem is that Lewis has changed, intimating that so-called woke culture and its adjacent movements have seen a once universal love turn to “booing […] everywhere he goes.


“After the murder of George Floyd, [Hamilton] had Mercedes paint the cars black, he talks about how he’s now green because he sold his jet and has urged everyone to be vegetarian.


“This is a problem for the green movement. They get Lewis to be a mouthpiece thinking he’ll convert the rest of us, instead, we all just want to throw something at him.

Clear that Jeremy Clarkson is Max Verstappen’s fan, even if he tries to be objective, or “Sorry Lewis, but I’m rooting for mad Max Verstappen” – as he said.

After the roaring final race in Abu Dhabi and all the types of frustration for the entire Mercedes team, Jeremy Clarckson tweeted: “Delighted with the result but the stewards need to be banned. We’ve had enough of them.” 

Hamilton’s position may not coincide with Clarkson’s views, as the broadcaster is certain that Mercedes driver’s influence is turning fans against him.  Clarkson previously noted that Lewis Hamilton has changed from the driver that entered the sport in 2007. Hamilton has shifted his focus to being more woke and politically correct.  

We cannot agree and also cannot deny the idea, as new times in Formula 1 are changing the view of drivers as role models. This is the same thing – changing regulations and increasing Formula 1’s influence as a world racing event. 

The reasonable question is what does Lewis Hamilton think about such annoucnmet. Well, he’s also heard comments. 

“I’ve seen a couple of comments from certain individuals that I remember growing up respecting when I was younger. But ultimately their comments are silly and a bunch of nonsense all in the aim to get headlines to keep themselves relevant,”

Instead of summing it up

The talented journalist and presenter knows how to add a little oil to the fire and keep the temperature so low that everything burns. However, even Lewis Hamilton’s fans can forgive him. Clarkson’s charisma and passion for motorsport are the point. His enthusiasm only underlines once again that Formula 1 is a sport that the whole world follows.
