Red Bull's Max Verstappen sang a different tune on Saturday when he reprimanded an interviewer after the qualifying session press conference when he was asked a question about the Silverstone crash involving Lewis Hamilton.
Both Christian Horner and Toto Wolff had several heated exchanges in the media over the last two few weeks following the controversial contact between the two championship leaders during the opening lap of the British Grand Prix on Sunday, 18 July which saw Verstappen crash out of the race.
Red Bull also requested that Hamilton's penalty be reviewed last Friday, but the request was dismissed earlier this week after the FIA stewards had met with representatives of each team.
Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas secured a front-row lockout during qualifying while Verstappen and his teammate Sergio Perez starts behind them in the second row for Sunday's race in Budapest.
After qualifying, the two rivals gave each other a fist pump in passing which clearly indicates they have moved on from all the drama.
Then, during the press conference after qualifying, an interviewer was firmly put in his place when asking Verstappen about all the talk after the Silverstone incident. The interviewer asked, "If you two end up wheel to wheel after the start tomorrow..." but before he could continue, Verstappen answered and gave a very clear message not just to him but everyone else still talking and asking about it.
He then said: "We are racers, we will race, and of course we are going to race hard but fair, so we just keep pushing each other."
The interviewer then asked Hamilton if he had anything to say, to which the Briton just shook his head.
Saturday's pole result takes Hamilton's record tally to eight pole positions in Budapest at the Hungaroring.
