Max Verstappen believes Hamilton found it simple and easy to blame him for their crash in Bahrain, because he is the younger driver.

The duo collided in Bahrain in the early stages of the GP at Turn 1, Hamilton was later caught on camera describing the Red Bull driver as a “d***head”.

Verstappen insists he did nothing wrong in that encounter. He has said he might try to talk to the Mercedes man, ahead of China.

When asked ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix why he felt Hamilton had a go at him, Verstappen said: “Why? Because it is quite simple and easy to blame the younger driver, that is the only way I can see it.

 

“Like I said, these things happen. There is no reason for me to change anything.”

“I might have a talk with him,” explained Verstappen. “It depends if it is really necessary, but why should I change something?

“I don’t think I did anything wrong in my approach. I was just trying to overtake a car and it was a fair chance, I went for it.

 

“Last year in Mexico it could have gone wrong as well, maybe for me or another car. It is racing. It is very simple. I don’t understand why everyone is on top of the topic as these things happen in racing.”
