F1 Russian Grand Prix LIVE: FP1 is UNDERWAY, Hamilton and Verstappen renew rivalry in Sochi

MAX ATTACKS

Max Verstappen has taken another swipe at Lewis Hamilton as their F1 battle is set to erupt in Russia.

The two clashed at the Italian GP where Hamilton claimed he was lucky to be ALIVE after Verstappen launched his Red Bull off a kerb and on to the roof of the Brit’s Mercedes.

And they have looked horns again after Hamilton had hinted that the pressure could be getting to the 23-year-old, who is in his first title fight, with Verstappen hitting back saying: “You don’t even know me.”

Hamilton was quizzed whether Verstappen’s desperate lunge in Monza showed he is struggling to cope with the added pressure.

He said: “Obviously Max won’t admit to it, I’m not going to make an assumption!

“But I remember [my first title battle] was difficult. It was intense. I was going through a lot of different emotions.

“I didn’t always handle it the best. And that’s to be expected, it’s a lot of pressure.”
