• Antonio Lobato's opinion Verstappen and Hamilton's conviction: no personal battles

In the return to normality between the two great protagonists for the Formula 1 World Championship after the technical problems of the last Grands Prix, the direct confrontation between

Lewis Hamilton

and

Max Verstappen

also returned

.

Still with the memory of abandoning Monza at Turn 2, when neither gave their arm to twist and the Dutchman finished literally above the British, their rivalry has not ended at the

United States Grand Prix.

In free practice, which ended with

'Checo' Pérez

as the best time (1: 34.946),

Lando Norris

second and

Hamilton

himself

third, the great moment of the session occurred with a

heads-up

between the Briton and

Verstappen

.

Both coincided in the last sector of the

Circuit of the Americas

, when the Dutchman was forced to abort his fastest lap when

Hamilton

decided to step on the accelerator, putting himself inches from

Red Bull

on the finish line as if it were the race.

Far from being angry at his performance,

Verstappen

preferred to take it for a comedy, giving him a comb and yelling on the radio:

"Ha, stupid idiot

.

"

Bumpy day for Alonso

Fernado Alonso

, still mired in his improvement with the

Alpine

, did not have the best day in Friday's free practice sessions, setting the thirteenth fastest time.

In addition, the Asturian ended up in the protections after losing control of his car.

Despite the shock, the car was able to return to its garage still with visible damage to the rear wing.

Carlos Sainz

, for his part, was able to continue advancing, but he followed the trend that already warned about the irregular performance of Ferrari in Austin, and although he completed the first free practice in fifth position, he could not improve the ninth place in the second session.
