Verstappen lashes out at Hamilton: 'I am not busy with that kind of thing'

Max Verstappen has two more Grands Prix to win the world title. Although the pressure on the Dutchman continues to increase, Verstappen remains completely relaxed after the races. In conversation with The Daily Mail he takes the time to talk about his rival Lewis Hamilton.

Verstappen and Hamilton are somewhat similar on the track, but off the track they are not at all. Where Hamilton is often busy with his looks and clothes, the life of the Dutch driver is mainly about car racing. He tells this in conversation with The Daily Mail.

"Everybody has their own style," responds Verstappen. "I am not busy with that kind of thing. For example, I forgot my socks when I came here, so I had to get some. I’m not bothered about looking good on camera. Everyone has a hobby, I guess. My hobby is racing, winning, beating my rivals."

Verstappen prefers anonymous existence

The talented driver is getting a lot of attention this season. However, he doesn't find that at all important, he admits, preferring to enjoy a life away from the media. "I am not in Formula One to be famous. I wish I could be anonymous. I wish I could run outside with my pants down."
