The accident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, which cost Red Bull the race at the last British Grand Prix, will again be analyzed by the FIA stewards on Thursday, at the request of the Dutchman’s team.
As reported on Tuesday by the official F1 website, Red Bull’s review request is registered, who do not accept the 10-second penalty that English had. Hamilton also won the race and from being 33 points behind the leader Verstappen he was eight.
Both staged a pulse to the limit at Silverstone until at the Copse curve, at 300 km / h, Verstappen wanted to get in from the outside and collided with the left front wheel of the Mercedes, getting thrown against the walls.
The Red Bull had to be taken to the hospital while Hamilton celebrated his victory. Energy drink team boss Christian Horner was furious, as was Verstappen himself, at the Englishman’s “aggressive” and unsportsmanlike attitude.
Now the FIA has summoned the two teams to a video conference on Thursday, in the run-up to the Hungarian Grand Prix, as Red Bull has reported that it has “new and relevant” evidence to ask the stewards for another sanction for Hamilton.
