Kravitz reacts to Verstappen Sky boycott for the first time

Ted Kravitz has provided his first insight into Max Verstappen and Red Bull's decision to boycott Sky TV at the Mexican Grand Prix.

Ted Kravitz has reacted to the saga surrounding Max Verstappen and Red Bull's decision to boycott Sky F1 during the Mexican Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen and the Red Bull team chose not to speak to any of the Sky Sports outlets, in any language, over the course of the Mexican GP.

The team took issue with comments made by Sky F1 broadcasters over the course of the season, with the team taking particular issue with Kravitz suggestions that Lewis Hamilton was 'robbed' of the 2021 Drivers' Championship.

The boycott lasted for one race, with Verstappen confirming earlier in the weekend that he was willing to move on from the situation.

Kravitz has remained publicly tight-lipped throughout the fallout, but spoke after the Brazilian GP qualifying hour and confirmed discussions directly with Verstappen had taken place.

"Just following up from what happened with us [Sky] and me and Max Verstappen in Mexico," began Kravitz during his show Ted's Notebook on Sky Sports F1.

"Listen, we sat down, we had a good chat but, as Max said yesterday, we've drawn a line on it so, onwards and upwards."
