'Spoiled, entitled brat!' Jeremy Clarkson brands Formula 1 star Max Verstappen a 'b***ard'
Clarkson’s Farm star Jeremy Clarkson has called Max Verstappen a “spoiled, entitled brat” in his latest column.The former Top Gear presenter’s scathing remarks come after Max refused to let teammate Sergio Perez pass even after he had already become world champion.Jeremy noted that at first Formula 1 fans were won over by the racing driver’s “exuberant style and his get-out-of-my-way yobbery” but that the tables have since turned.The presenter then went on to describe how the sports star had gone from “hero to zero” at lighting speed in his eyes.Max sparked controversy last year when he won against Lewis Hamilton in Abu Dhabi on what was viewed by some to be an error in judgement.However, he is nonetheless one of Formula 1’s biggest stars, with fans all over the world.“Despite the controversy, we were all thrilled when he won his first world championship. And even more thrilled when he won his second,” Jeremy admitted. “But then, during one brief radio message in the closing stages of last weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix, everyone suddenly decided that actually he was a b***ard.”Jeremy went on to describe how Max had been asked to slow down in order to let his teammate Sergio pass him by.Pointing out the star’s placement was irrelevant as he had already been named world champion at that point, Jeremy described the ask as “no big deal”. Therefore, the star was infuriated to see that Max refused the request, despite it being an important race for Sergio given that he has been battling for the runner-up position. Jeremy wrote: “Now, there was one time – in Monaco – when Sergio really didn’t help Max but there have been plenty of other occasions when he actively did.
