After the race for the Belgian GP, a verbal fight broke out between Max Verstappn and World Champion of the Season 2016 Nic Rosberg, who criticized the Dutchman for his “headless” run in the first round of the race in Spa.
After the race in Belgium, Rosberg said that in a first-round collision, Verstappen found an “old self,” and then criticized the Dutchman's driving a damaged car.
Verstappen reacted sharply to Rosberg's words, comparing the German to the controversial Jacques Villeneuve, and continued his verbal showdown in Monza a day later.
“Rosberg was neither credible nor a driver, and now he is no different. I said it became the new Villeneuve, but in reality, Villeneuve is looking good right now. I don't know what the problem is. He recently said I was narcissistic, which is really disrespectful. I really don't understand why he does that. “
