Verstappen did not speak to Hamilton and this is why

Max Verstappen has not yet spoken to Lewis Hamilton about the incident. The seventeen-time Grand Prix winner thinks it is better to leave it for a while and come back to it at a later time.

"In the heat of the moment it's better to walk away so everyone calms down," Verstappen said according to So there has been no discussion with Hamilton yet, but there will be before the next Grand Prix."But we will definitely still discuss it."

If it's up to the 23-year-old Dutchman, there's not going to be a very big thing made of Sunday's incident. Verstappen argues that he and Hamilton are professional enough to move on and put the past behind them. The Red Bull Racing driver also doesn't want to rehash all the stories from Silverstone.

Mercedes always strong in Russia

In two weeks time, the race will be held again in Sochi. Verstappen will travel to Russia with a five-point lead. The Russian GP is on the calendar since 2014 and all editions were won by Mercedes.
