Lewis Hamilton Gives A Blunt Response To Christian Horner's Comments
That Max Verstappen is ahead of both Ferrari's, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc, is reason enough for Red Bull boss Christian Horner to reckon that Verstappen is "the best driver of the world".
The Dutchman gave a stellar drive in Austria that saw him come wheel to wheel with Charles Leclerc and nab victory from under the Frenchman's nose.
In a recent press conference, Christian Horner stated that Max Verstappen was "the best driver in the world". The Red Bull boss suggested the flying Dutchman would soon edge five-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton if they were to race each other in equal cars.
Upon hearing these claims and comments, the British driver gave a rather blunt response in the press conference ahead of his home race.
“I don't compare myself with anyone, I don't need to. I don't really have an answer to these claims. Every once in a while someone needs certain attention… I think Max has been doing a great job and the last race was fantastic. It will be interesting to see how they do moving forward," says Hamilton.
