FIA doesn't dare put Verstappen and Hamilton next to each other

A week and a half after the clash between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton it is still the hottest topic in the Formula 1 world. Next weekend in Hungary, Verstappen will be looking for sporting revenge by beating his title rival just before the summer break.

Verstappen not alongside Hamilton

As always the F1 weekend starts with the press conference on Thursday. The fun starts with the announcement of which drivers will be paired up at the press conference. Many people had hoped for fireworks by having Verstappen and Hamilton next to each other for the interviews with the media, but the FIA doesn't seem to have the guts to do this.

During the press conference, which starts at 12:30, Verstappen is paired with McLaren driver Lando Norris. Hamilton will sit down with his teammate Valtteri Bottas. The two title rivals will have their turn shortly after each other and will also conclude the press conference.

The full grid is as follows

Stroll / Leclerc
Ocon / Sainz
Gasly / Mazepin
Raikkonen / Ricciardo
Alonso / Vettel
Giovinazzi / Schumacher
Tsunoda / Russell
Perez / Latifi
Norris / Verstappen
Bottas / Hamilton
