Here’s everything you need to know about the feud between Sky Sports’ reported Ted Kravitz and Max Verstappen

Reigning world champion Max Verstappen and team Red Bull have decided to boycott interviews with Sky Sports. Ahead of last week’s Mexican Grand Prix, Verstappen and his team announced that they will no longer conduct interviews with Sky Sports. As per reports, the decision comes as a result of Sky reporter Ted Kravitz’s controversial statements on air.

During his own show, ‘Ted’s Notebook’, Kravitz made a number of statements which didn’t go down well with Verstappen and his team. To start with, Kravitz said what a script it would have been had Hamilton beaten Verstappen at the Circuit of The Americas. He further said that Hamilton was robbed of his 8th World title, referring to Verstappen’s nail-biting championship win last season in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking on the decision to boycott Sky Sports, Verstappen said: “This whole year they have been firing and disrespectful, certainly one person in particular. At some point, I don’t accept it anymore. The atmosphere on social media is toxic. This way you only make it worse.” It is evident that Verstappen is clearly offended by comments made on Sky shows and as things stand, they have boycotted the network for an indefinite period.

Kravitz didn’t just stop after taking indirect digs at Verstappen. He continued to make severely unprofessional statements on air. Kravitz claimed that claiming Verstappen was not able to win a Championship in a normal way after he was pronounced world champion in Japan in confusing circumstances after the race had finished.

During the US Grand Prix, Kravitz said: “Verstappen is around the paddock, he seems very happy with himself. He doesn’t seem to be a driver capable of winning a championship in a normal way.”
