Verstappen & Hamilton Clash Again In Monza

The most recent Grand Prix was staged in Monza, Italy, and once again there was a tense exchange between the top two in the Drivers’ Championship following the race. Verstappen and Hamilton collided on the 26th lap, just after the Brit had left the pit-lane. Verstappen attempted to overtake the reigning world champion on the right-hand side, but collided with Hamilton, which saw both cars crashing off the track.

It could have been a horrific moment, but the halo on Hamilton’s Mercedes ensured that the incident wasn’t as bad as it could have been, with the Brit claiming that the modification saved his life. The race was eventually won by Daniel Ricciardo, with McLaren teammate Lando Norris in second and Bottas in third. Crucially, race stewards announced after the race that Verstappen will have a three-place grid penalty for the next Grand Prix in Russia, which could open up the opportunity for Hamilton to get back to the top of the standings.
