Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has Emerged Champion of the British Grand Prix, after winning the Motor Race.
A high-speed collision has occurred between Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen who is leading the drivers’ championship this season, on the opening lap of the British Grand Prix on Sunday.
In a bid to reinvigorate his title defense, Mercedes driver Hamilton overtook Charles Leclerc two laps from the end to secure his eighth British GP victory
One of the most interesting moments during the sporting event was recorded when Hamilton was given a time penalty and finally had a dramatic conclusion to the race.
The drama stated when Hamilton made a number of attempts to overtake Verstappen on that first lap and when the drivers arrived at Silverstone’s Copse Corner, the Briton’s front-left wheel touched the Red Bull driver’s back-right tire, CNN reports.
It was also recorded that Dutchman, Verstappen spun off the track and across the gravel before crashing into the barriers, though he was able to walk away from his wrecked car.
Meanwhile, the race was suspended with Ferrari’s Leclerc in the lead.
Concerning Verstappen’s health condition, Red Bull confirmed and tweeted on Sunday: “Following an assessment by the trackside doctors at Silverstone Circuit Medical Centre, Max Verstappen has been taken to a local hospital for further precautionary tests,”
Verstappen tweeted from hospital that he was “ok” and that he believed Hamilton’s celebrations afterwards to be “disrespectful.”
“Glad I’m ok. Very disappointed with being taken out like this,” he said.
“The penalty given does not help us and doesn’t do justice to the dangerous move Lewis made on track. Watching the celebrations while still in hospital is disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior but we move on.”
