Team principal Red Bull Max Horner attacked the British driver after Lewis Hamilton's statements against Max Verstappen. Mercedes star, at the press conference, said he was the only one to make a serious commitment to avoid contact with Verstappen, while the Dutchman would be much more aggressive because he would have much more to prove.
He said: "Lewis Hamilton loves all that junk, his mind games. You have to ignore him, go ahead. If he feels the need to make these statements, it means that Max is getting under his skin. It's fantastic and it's part of the sport.
Look at it. the endplate or the front wing flap. You can see how it starts to disappear from the frame and then reappears. So what's the difference between the front and the rear? We will have to make some changes for the next test and that costs time and money, but we are not the only team to do it.
Probably a greater burden for those like Alfa Romeo, who are already at the limit. Ferrari has had a good pace in the last two races. It is very fast and certainly in PL2 They were very fast. Leclerc and Sainz are up there, at the top of the standings, and their car seems well balanced, so they had a great session: congratulations.
As for us, however, if we put the lap together we will be there at the top. For Checo it is ta a good morning, but in general there was a lot of traffic. I'm sure everyone is complaining about it, not just Max, who found him just when he had to make the time and so he couldn't.
I think we have lost the best of the tire window and also have a little too much understeer on Max's car, according to him. So I think it's just a matter of tuning and avoiding traffic, we shouldn't be far from the top."
Lewis Hamilton has several incredible cars in his garage
His salary for the 2021 season is around 40 million dollars, to which all the bonuses related to any winning of the world championship will be added. One of Hamilton's best car is the red Ferrari La Ferrari.
Powered by a 6.3-liter V12 with 800hp, this supercar also has an electric powertrain that allows the car to reach 963hp of power and over 900nm of torque. The champion must have liked this model a lot, so much so that he owns another in a convertible version, the Ferrari Aperta, in white.
The Mercedes cannot be missing, in fact Lewis owns a red Mercedes SLS AMG black edition and a brand new 585 hp Mercedes AMG GTR in white. From the Stuttgart car manufacturer we also find a Mercedes S-class Maybach, the car most used by the Brackley-based team driver.
In the garage we also find a blue McLaren P1. This model is one of 375 units produced by McLaren. Equipped with a 916hp twin-turbo hybrid V8 with 900nm of torque, the price of this supercar is around one million euros. The Pagani Zonda 760 LH, a model derived from the 760 RS but built specifically for Hamilton.
Other pieces from Lewis Hamilton's collection are the Shelby Cobra 472, a Mercedes G-class and a brand new Mercedes GLE. Given the attention that the driver places towards the fight against climate change, he also has the new electric Mercedes models, such as the just presented EQS and EQC.
