LEWIS Hamilton and Max Verstappen have shaken hands in a bid to draw a line under their clash in Bahrain.

Both drivers have blamed the other for their on-track collision in last Sunday’s race with Hamilton later telling reporters that Verstappen’s attempted overtake “lacked respect”.

But the world champion sought out his Red Bull rival after arriving in Shanghai for this weekend’s Chinese GP in order to bring their spat to a close.

Hamilton confirmed he and Verstappen had shaken hands at a fan-signing event at the circuit, with the Dutchman acknowledging the gesture.

“I generally do my talking on the track. Obviously after this incident I didn’t, but I just saw Max now,” said Hamilton.

“He’s a beast.”

That’s how IndyCar legend Scott Dixon has described fellow Kiwi Scott McLaughlin after the Supercars star’s disappointing debut in Florida.

The legend of Dixon keeps growing, with the 40-year-old claiming his sixth IndyCar series title with a third placing in Florida on Monday.

Dixon said the hardest part of a “crazy” season came when the racing was shut down because of Covid-19 just before the first race, plunging the teams into two months of “unknowns”.

F1 news 2020, Red Bull, Alex Albon, driver line up 2021, Daniel Ricciardo, Hulkenberg, Perez, latest, silly season

Published

on

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has insisted the team will not replace its another driver in the middle of the season, despite Alexander Albon’s poor showing since swapping over with Pierre Gasly last year.

Gasly made the step up Toro Rosso – now AlphaTauri – to replace Daniel Ricciardo at the start of last season but was replaced by British-Thai driver Alexander Albon midway through the campaign, with the Frenchman returning to Red Bull’s junior team.

However, while Gasly has been impressive in his bounce back, securing a shock maiden first grand prix victory, Albon has struggled and claimed just the one podium since.

He is currently down in eighth in the driver standings, nearly 100 points behind teammate Max Verstappen with Ricciardo, Charles Leclerc, Sergio Perez and Lando Norris all ahead of him despite being in slower cars.
