Fierce Formula One title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen “are getting hyped” and were “arrogant” at Silverstone, according to Sir Jackie Stewart.

Red Bull’s Verstappen is currently 12 points ahead of Mercedes’ Hamilton in the world championship battle and has been locked in a heated fight all season.

The pair collided at 180 mph at the Copse corner on the first lap of the British Grand Prix in July, and just two months later the pair were involved in a terrible accident at the Italian Grand Prix.

Stewart, a three-time world champion, has insisted that the pair “must be careful” that their desire to reach the top does not have repercussions.

“We have to be careful that they don’t get carried away by the need to win a race,” he said. Motorsport-Magazin.com.

I think they are both exaggerating a bit at the moment. We have seen it in at least two situations.

“ I hope we remember it in the most positive way possible because I don’t want anything bad to happen, even though motorsport is very safe these days.

‘The accident that happened at Silverstone – in my time he [Verstappen] I would have died. I think the problem at Silverstone was that they both did things that they shouldn’t have done so early in the race. I think they were both arrogant.

At Silverstone, Verstappen hit the tire barrier at 51G and was given the go-ahead after spending six hours in a hospital in Coventry.

Seven-time world champion Hamilton received a 10-second penalty after being found “predominantly guilty” for the accident, but rallied to win in front of 140,000 fans.

The crash sparked a fight, with Verstappen tweeting from the hospital that his rival was ‘disrespectful’ and ‘unsportsmanlike’.

The drivers collided on lap 26 at Monza, with the wheel of the Red Bull car landing on Hamilton’s head.

It is almost certain that the Briton was saved from a serious injury thanks to the Halo safety device, a titanium bar placed over the driver’s head that has been mandatory in Formula One since 2018.

In an increasingly heated world championship match, the two drivers accused the other of being wrong after the race, and Hamilton said Verstappen “knew what was going to happen, but still did it.”

In an exclusive interview with Sportsmail, F1 legend Stewart was disappointed to see Verstappen walk away without stopping to check if Hamilton was okay.
