Max Verstappen faced boos from the stands after qualifying in Britain. The Dutchman is not too bothered about it, but nevertheless, Lewis Hamilton has spoken up for his rival. The seven-time world champion does not agree with the action of several British fans.

"We’re better than that so I would say we don’t need to boo," Hamilton is quoted as saying by Motorsportweek. com. Although he says he understands that emotions can sometimes take over, the Mercedes driver argues that booing is unnecessary. "I don’t agree with booing, we should be here pushing everybody," he said.

Hamilton, therefore, does not want to belittle his own fans. "I really appreciate the fans I have here and maybe some are still feeling the pain from last year still." On Sunday we will see if the fans at Silverstone have listened to Hamilton's words.

Verstappen himself, however, is not at all bothered. The 24-year-old Dutchman said fans should do that if they feel the need. He himself is not bothered by it at all.
