 Exclusive: Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen CRASH OUT TOGETHER as title rivals collide and take each other out of Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix


Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen crashed out of the Italian Grand Prix together as they collided on Sunday.

The incident occurred shortly after Hamilton emerged from the pit lane on lap 26, narrowly ahead of Verstappen, prompting the 23-year-old to aggressively fight for the position.

The incident was very dramatic

As Hamilton left the pits, Verstappen drew alongside the Mercedes driver and, as they fought for position at the Variante Del Rettifilo, they collided.

Verstappen ran wide and the kerbs launched his Red Bull into the air, with the rear of his machine landing on the top of Hamilton’s Mercedes.

Verstappen then ploughed into the gravel trap, with the back of his Red Bull still resting on Hamilton’s car.

“That’s what happens when you don’t leave any room,” said Verstappen on the radio as he stormed off.

Verstappen’s rear tyre came into close proximity with Hamilton’s head, despite the presence of safety features including the halo.

Hamilton’s team posted an update on Twitter which read: “For everyone asking, Lewis is OK. He’s on his way back to the paddock now.”

The incident was referred to the race stewards to investigate after the race.
