Why Max Verstappen is F1’s fan favorite, Jeremy Clarkson explains!

Who is this charismatic man in the photo? It is Jeremy Clarkson, his passion for cars goes through all the things he does as a journalist. We probably already know Mr Clarkson as a Top Gear broadcaster, but he also writes about the hot topics with ease and humor. Fortunately, he also follows Formula 1 with interest, especially for Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton’s battle for the world title. Moreover, the talented journalist has his own point of view that we must share with you.

Jeremy Clarkson is not for the first time a bit provocative, but full of reason and his own point of view in The Sun column. Last time, after the Hungarian Grand Prix 2021, Clarkson rushed on Lewis Hamilton and claimed that the Mercedes driver needed “a smack.” Jeremy said that “Hamilton spent most of last week’s thrilling race on the radio claiming that the mate in front of him Fernando Alonso was cheating. Which he wasn’t. And then when Lewis finishes in third place, he flopped about on the podium claiming he has ‘long Covid’, which seems to be another way of saying” Please ignore Esteban Ocon. “

Max Verstappen seen from Jeremy Clarkson’s perspective.

Today Mr Clarkson answers in detail the long-standing question why Max Verstappen is F1’s fan favorite. Lewis Hamilton holds the world record for Formula 1 victories – 100 wins in 282 races since his debut in 2007. Max Verstappen holds another record – as the youngest Formula One Grand Prix winner. He won the Spanish Grand Prix on his debut for Red Bull Racing in 2016. Nevertheless, Max Verstappen almost won the hearts of Formula One fans, but by what?


Every race weekend, Lewis Hamilton gets out of his car and thanks the crowd – presumably hoping we at home can’t hear them booing.

“It happens everywhere he goes, whether he wins or loses.
“People love Max Verstappen but they’ve taken a noisy dislike to Lewis. The problem is that Lewis has changed.

“When he first came on to the scene, he was bright and talented and normal – and everyone loved him. But then he decided to go woke and right-on and more politically correct than a student union AGM.

“Trying to fix an entire planet by buying locally produced raspberries and insulating your loft is like trying to cure a cancer patient by trimming his eyebrows.

“The problem is that Lewis has changed, intimating that so-called woke culture and its adjacent movements have seen a once universal love turn to “booing […] everywhere he goes.

“After the murder of George Floyd, [Hamilton] had Mercedes paint the cars black, he talks about how he’s now green because he sold his jet and has urged everyone to be vegetarian.

“This is a problem for the green movement. They get Lewis to be a mouthpiece thinking he’ll convert the rest of us, instead, we all just want to throw something at him.

Instead of summing it up

The talented journalist and presenter knows how to add a little oil to the fire and keep the temperature so low that everything burns. However, even Lewis Hamilton’s fans can forgive him. Clarkson’s charisma and passion for motorsport are the point. His enthusiasm only underlines once again that Formula 1 is a sport that the whole world follows.
