Formula 1: Max Verstappen emerges from British Grand Prix after colliding with Lewis Hamilton in the first lap Formula 1 News

Max Verstappen, the leader of the Formula 1 Championship, fell out of the British Grand Prix on Sunday in the first round with Lewis Hamilton dominating the first round. He was left out of the Verstapp race. Hamilton was sentenced to 10 seconds, which he could have taken at a pit stop. With as many crowds as possible, the Hamilton home rider, who started second in the net, attacked Verstapp from the start. He made several attempts to advance and tried to cut Copse from the inside out. When the Dutchman from Verstappen turned around he hit the front tire of Mercedes and crossed his Red Bull gravel and crashed into the fences.

The race was interrupted led by Charles Leclerc and the crew was removing the car from Verstappen and officials were investigating the incident.

During the break of the action the teams and drivers put pressure on the organizers and managers of the races both in advance and on the radio.

Mercedes team manager Toto Woolf and Red Bull Christian Horner both went to the officers ’room on pit lane.

Hamilton posted his case in a radio chat with his team.

“I was into it before,” he said. “It was my line. I was giving space to the guy.”

From Mercedes Pit Lane he called race director Michael Massey.

“I was able to see that picture. Lewis was significantly within the ninth round.”

Horner argued the opposite in a radio call with race director Michael Massey

“That corner, it was never next door,” Horner argued.

“Every driver who has driven this circuit knows that in Copse you don’t stick a wheel. It’s a huge accident and it’s been 100 percent entirely the fault of Max’s corner, Hamilton should never be in that position.”

“Thank God he’s gone without harm. I hope you’ll deal with him properly,” Horner concluded before repeating the sentiment on the pit television cameras.

The guards eventually imposed a 10-second penalty.

Verstappen won the last three races to secure a 33-point advantage seven times over champion Hamilton.

After finishing second in Saturday’s Qualifying Spring, Hamilton repeated the complaint because the Red Bulls were faster.


“It was similar to the last few races, you had to follow Max,” he said, a feeling that initially explained his desperate attempt to achieve leadership.

Hamilton had another notorious first-lap accident in 2016 when he collided with teammate Nico Rosberg in Barcelona when he destroyed two cars. Rosberg won the title.
