British start of Mercedes Lewis Hamilton talked about his Red Bull rival Max Verstappen. He also talked about German driver Sebastian Vetterl and their friendship. Hamilton was one of the protagonists of the Interlagos media day, talking about what happened last year with Verstappen: "When I tried to pass it, I remember that Max went very long.
I immediately told myself, preparing a new attack, that I would not allow him to do it again, it was not what I wanted. The next time, I managed to fool him at the first corner. I pretended to bring an attack on the inside, so he had to finish by sacrificing the corner exit, losing traction.
I, on the other hand, managed to keep myself on the outside, being able to take advantage of better acceleration. When we got to the straight where I could use the DRS, I got very close, and I closed the overtaking before the corner where he had gone wide earlier.
I had taken a good lead and didn't give him a chance to recover. Anyway it was a good fight, I enjoyed that weekend, I had an exceptional pace. I hope to be able to do something like this again in the future."
