Jeremy Clarkson fan of Verstappen: 'What an impressive race'

In the past, former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson made it clear he was not a fan of Lewis Hamilton, but the Brit seems to enjoy Max Verstappen. The Dutchman managed to hold off Hamilton in the closing stages of the race on older tyres.

After the race, Clarkson revealed on Twitter that he was impressed with the Dutchman's race. "F*ck me. Max Verstappen. What a race." He also responded to a tweet from a follower. "Keeping that pace on those tyres in the last five laps was very impressive", he said.

Clarkson lashed out at Hamilton earlier

After the Hungarian Grand Prix, Clarkson lashed out at Hamilton. The former Top Gear presenter is known for not being a big fan of Hamilton. At the restart of the race, where Hamilton was the only one on the grid, he said that the seven times world champion at least could not hit anyone that way. He also wrote a piece in the British newspaper in which he said he didn't like Hamilton's attitude.
