Max Verstappen: “Hamilton can afford to take skydiving risks”

Max Verstappen insists he will not be following Lewis Hamilton out of the back of a plane any time soon.

Asked if he too will be jumping out of planes soon, Verstappen told De Telegraaf newspaper: “At the moment certainly not.”

“Lewis is of course already 34 years old,” he said. “Of course I do not know what my life will look like in 13 years.”

Verstappen said that with his five titles, Hamilton can afford to take extra life risks.

“Lewis has already won so much,” he said. “So skydiving, why not? You also have to enjoy a bit of life, of course.

“But for me, the risks are greater. Of course, I do not want to get injured so that I might not be able to win the championship. So even skydiving is not available for me now.”
