Hamilton surprised by fight: 'I've never experienced what I saw'

Lewis Hamilton scored a victory at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix on Sunday night, putting him back on a par with Max Verstappen in the world championship. The Briton was afterwards in conversation with the official website of Formula 1 surprised about what happened on the circuit.

Max Verstappen and Hamilton did everything to win in Saudi Arabia. While Verstappen passed Hamilton illegally, the Brit hit the back of the Dutchman's car hard. In the end, it was Hamilton who took the win.

Hamilton enjoyed the fight quite a bit, although he was also critical of his competitor. "The battle is so spectacular, I appreciate that," he stated in the interview. "It's so tricky on the track. It's so difficult to drive with a driver who has different rules. I tried with everything I had to do it in a proper and fair way."

Hamilton saw tension with his team

The fight on the track created a lot of tension for his team, Hamilton saw afterwards. "I've never experienced what I saw with them at the end of the race today in the pit lane. The energy of that was on a completely different level."
