Copse, Verstappen in Hamilton: “You learn at 37” – F1 Piloti – Formula 1

A red thread has united Silverstone releases in the past two years. There were two amazing Grand Prix races, full of turns, with the protagonist’s corner: copse. Which in 2021 was the scene of a very violent incident between Louis Hamilton max Verstappenwith the latter at the barrier at 51G, last Sunday saw Charles overtake from the outside Leclerc Only at the expense of the seven-time world champion. Evidence shows that the Mercedes driver stayed close to the curb this year, and that contact was avoided despite Ferrari being given the same space as the Dutchman.

According to Verstappen, Leclerc pressed Hamilton tighter, but this time the crash did not happen. As if confirming his suspicions that the seven-time world champion specifically sent him to the barrier a year ago: “I think it’s very good that at 37 you can still learn to ride. He’s learning, and that’s cool. It is also good for young riders to know that at the age of 37, there is still plenty of time and space to learn. In the video comparing the maneuvers you can clearly see what has changed compared to last year. I think Charles gave him less space than me-This speaks a lot. If you face it, in the end it was he who was punished It’s 2021, so the comments he made are meaningless. It would have been inappropriate to make certain statements now that we are going to Austria and I will have many fans, but these words have no effect on my performance. I should just focus on what we’re doing here and I think we’re doing well this yearVerstappen told reporters in Austria.

Commenting on the overtaking immediately, Hamilton congratulated Leclerc. But, of course, the message was addressed to Verstappen: “Charles did a great job, he’s a great driver. Our fight was obviously very different from what I experienced last year at Cops. But We were able to fight and move from wheel to wheel without any problems“.
