Lewis Hamilton celebrates George Russell but not Max Verstappen
Lewis Hamilton’s words
Lewis Hamilton again missed the appointment with victory but seemed satisfied in the post-race interview with Felipe Massa: “First of all, I want to offer a big congratulations to George on his first win. He put in an incredible performance this weekend; I’m really proud of him as well as the whole team.”
