The rivalry between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton seems to be building all the time. In Imola the two drivers hit each other on the opening lap and in Portimao they were constantly close to each other in the opening stages. Not only during the race they put pressure on each other, but also during practice they are in each other’s way.
In the final free practice session, Verstappen was on a slow lap and the first car behind him was Hamilton, judging by Verstappen’s reaction it wasn’t the first time the seven-time world champion wanted the slipstream from the Dutchman. “Yeah, is it him again behind? It’s unbelievable this guy in the last sector.”
The times of Verstappen and Hamilton do not seem to be far apart and so the two rivals will battle for pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix in qualifying.
