Hamilton about Verstappen: Some racers are smarter than others …
Lewis Hamilton, who won the race for the GP of Mexico after a strategic fight, is aware that the race could end at the very beginning when the Briton collided with Max Verstappen, damaging the bottom of his Mercedes.
Following the victory, Hamilton revealed that she had to adjust her racing style due to a damaged bottom, and the race winner acknowledged that she was always a little cautious in her encounters with Max Verstappen.
A different approach must be taken against Verstappen. Each racer is slightly different. Some are smart, others are smart-aggressive, and some are somewhat dumb in duels. When you race against Max you have to leave him extra space, otherwise your race may be over. Max is a magnet for things like that and I was lucky enough to continue the race.
