Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel feel "threatened" by Max Verstappen, according to the young Dutch driver's father.

In Mexico, world champion Hamilton hit out at Verstappen's aggressive driving, and Vettel said he would "copy-paste" that opinion.

However, Verstappen has been roundly criticised for his behaviour in Mexico, including ignoring the yellow flags and getting involved in collisions in the race.
