Verstappen gives Hamilton stress: 'Lewis never shows that the outside world'

Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton will fight for the lead in the world championship during this weekend's United States Grand Prix. Timo Glock is still hesitant to say which driver will hold the world title at the end of the season.

The former Formula 1 driver tells in conversation with the German Sport1 that he is really enjoying the championship battle in Formula 1 this season. Where he sees the experience of Hamilton, he also notices that Verstappen makes a mature impression.

"Verstappen has done well so far. He made a huge jump for me, has become much clearer, much more controlled in many ways," Glock stated. "Two years ago, in a situation like the Monza crash, he probably would have opened Lewis' space and stepped in. Now he leaves it and thinks: watch how you get out of there."

Nerves at Hamilton

According to Glock, Hamilton's nerves are now starting to get the better of him. "Lewis never shows the outside world he is under pressure. He knows how to be serene. He probably knows it too: when he puts on the helmet, it depends. But he finds a way to look relaxed and cool."
