Daniel Ricciardo’s theory on why Lewis Hamilton approached Max Verstappen in Canada
Ricciardo, alongside actor and comedian Will Arnett, shared his perspective during the broadcast: “It’s interesting, you know. I see it as Lewis has gone up to him thinking he’s vulnerable and might let his guard down and try and get some information about the car and give it back to the team. But Max wasn’t giving him too much. It was all very blasé. I’ve been in those rooms enough times to know you’ve still got to be on it and not get complacent.”
With his victory in Canada, Verstappen extended his lead in the Drivers’ Championship. The win marked his sixth of the season and 41st overall, equalling the legendary three-time World Champion Ayrton Senna’s tally. Verstappen now holds a 69-point advantage over his Red Bull teammate, Sergio Perez, whose title challenge has faltered recently with a concerning drop in form.
