The 2021 World Cup King told Dutch media: “I think Lewis will be at the beginning of 2022. We have great respect between us. My future? I would like to stay at Red Bull for 10-15 years.”
“I can’t become a SIR in the Netherlands but it’s not necessary: I’m a driver and the title of F1 world champion is enough for me.” With this joke Max Verstappen describes the knighthood awarded in the United Kingdom to his great rival Lewis Hamilton for the Dutch media.
The future in f1
The 2021 champion expects to find the seven-time world champion on the track again next season although Toto Wolff questioned him given what happened in Abu Dhabi, where Mercedes felt punished by the decisions of the race keepers. “I expect Lewis to be there, there are some hot words but I expect to find him on the right track in 2022 – statements made at home by Verstappen – our relationship? In the end I would say good. There were obviously moments of tension, where we got angry From each other, but also good duels, good overtaking, and there is respect.” And as for the future, there is no doubt: “I am very happy with where I am and I hope to be able to do all this for another 10-15 years.”
