      Under f1 rules the car on the inside has the right to stay there so I'd say it was down to max they are the rules and both drivers know that . So I would put it down to max .

      There are no rules saying that a driver MUST hit the Apex of the corner, they do to get maximum exit speed. To me was that Max tried to clip the Apex from the outside while fully aware of the fact that Lewis was alongside him.

      Disagree, Max compromised Lewis' line so much into Copse he didn't have much choice but to miss, make a late apex or back out. Max turns into the corner like normal disregarding that Lewis' can't suddenly disappear. Max expected Lewis' to back out. Live by the sword moment...

    I have to ask. If HAM was next to VER almost against the pit wall how could he expect HAM to take a normal apex? We all know Max drives like he's alone on he track on lap one every race. He needs to show a little respect for what he's doing. If it were 40 years ago he would not be stupid brave. I hope he matures but Red bull aggressively going after a racing incident like it was dirty tactics is not going to help him realize he's the Dale Earnhardt of F1

    The 10 second penalty was extraordinarily low. Lewis and Max are the only contenders for the championship and Lewis did it on purpose 100%. Lewis is a 7 times world champion driving on his home track. He knew exactly what would happen. He was disrespectful towards Max after the race and he risked killing Max just for some points. Lewis should've imo been disqualified from the race. And I would want to same for Max if the roles were reversed. 10 seconds is just a little tap on the finger.

    the controversy stems from the charged atmosphere concerning race, so calling out Sir Hamilton out is racist, supporting verstappen is racist and christian horner backing his driver is also racist per some tweets ive seen. Had this been between verstappen and bottas or lando whoever drove into who would be blamed. Nobody wants to back down so here we are with Fia refusing to review red bulls appeal.

    I believe this should have been ruled a racing incident. We need to mention/address that Max was moving all over the place both in the straight and going into the corner. I believe they bumped wheels several times leading up to the crash. Also Hamilton passed 2 other drivers during the race with the same move. In my opinion Max was over aggressive when he cut in front of Hamilton and expected Hamilton to get out of the way and at 200+mph that seems a bit unreasonable. Hamilton should have left more room but Max would have hit him anyway. Two racers having a scrap and unfortunately Max lost out. Max could have just as easily taken Lewis’s front wing off and caused Lewis to crash. What would we have said if that happened?

    Drivers are constantly pushing to gain or hold on to positions.. this was no different.. to say one is at fault completely flies in the face of competition that was taking place between the two drivers.. I'm no fan of Lewis but If Lewis's car was experiencing understeer going into the turn (as he was pushing to gain the position) then to blame Lewis wholeheartedly is far from being fair.. it was a situation where both drivers were ready to push the limits and when that happens, one usually looses out. Unfortunately it was Vestappen. Thank god that he did not experience any major bodily harm. That's the greatest relief

    I have heard so much stuff about "touching the apex" or "following the natural racing line" and to be honest I don't really know why. I know that this was the issue pointed out by the stewards, but there is no rule saying that a driver has to touch the apex (as James Alison mentioned). And I don't think Lewis wanted to touch the apex at all, it would have compromised his exit. I would have deemed this a racing incident. There have been several situations that were not different from this one (and, yes, I am considering how alongside Hamilton was) that didn't get even 5 second penalty.

    The quest of Hamilton for gender acceptance, which has nothing to do with F1, is a big contrast with his behaviour in the elimination of Max Verstappen and the joyful celebrating after the checkered flag without any concern about the physical state of Max. Hamilton is not a good sports. Only greedy.

    I think it was 50:50, Lewis was lucky to get a red flag to repair the damage. The penalty seemed to be in line with other similar incidents -- ignoring who it is, their position in their championship or the size of the resulting crash. Hamilton braked earlier than Verstappen, which is why they connected front wheel to rear wheel, as a second earlier Hamilton was only just a wheel's diameter behind. Verstappen also turned in, saw Hamilton was there, turned out, then turned in again. Hamilton never changed steering inputs, but did appear to understeer as the steering didn't seem to match the direction of the car. Hamilton was also ahead of Verstappen going into Brooklands, but not clear, so why was Verstappen allowed to take the inside line, but when Hamilton did the same 3 corners later, it wasn't allowed. Hamilton left plenty of space for Verstappen on the outside of Copse. Personally, I'd like to see more wheel-to-wheel racing so I'd hate to see anything come out of this that deters close racing. Max lost out this time, it may be Lewis next time. If Red Bull had the race pace, which they seemed to have, Verstappen should have just backed out and got him later or at the pit stop.

    Lewis's biggest mistake was backing out of the move ! For a split second he was virtually fully alongside on the entry but then backed out of it too late mid corner which caused the front left to rear right wheel contact. If he had not lifted off like he did he would have remained alongside & max would probably have opened the wheel again mid corner to give him the room he needed to get past cleanly (he had already opened the wheel once on the entry), there may possibly have been side of tyre to side of tyre contact because Lewis ran wide but that would have caused less of an issue. Lewis was desperate to get past to prove a point because Max overtook him at Copse in the Saturday Sprint which lost Lewis the pole for the Sunday race, in a weird way the Saturday sprint caused some of the problem.

    Most importantly, Max seems to be okay. I guess I'm wondering if RB are going to be allowed another £1.3 "meeeeleon" in their budget cap. Since that's what Christian Horner is claiming the crash has cost them. If it isn't Max's fault, then I can see this being one of the points I expect to be brought up in the Review RB have asked for.

    Günther Steiner about the penality. "I don’t care what stewards decide, as long as they’re consistent. If taking out a competitor results in a 10 second time penalty, it only costs a 190 seconds penalty to take ‘m all out. And with no one else left on the track, who fucking cares?"

    How can the driver on the inside make sure he's on the natural line into the corner when there is another car in the way? It's impossible. You can't expect driver's to take some 'natural line'. It's racing, the racing track is wide, especially at Silverstone. Does every overtake happen with the driver on the natural line - no...... probably a large % of the time they are not on some 'natural line'. On top of this - it's actually Max that speeds up on the corner, cuts in front of Lewis and therefore inevitably drives into Lewis' front left tyre. When 30+ points ahead in the driver's title you don't need to take risks getting this close to an overtaking driver especially when you have acres of room on the outside.

I came here looking for proof one way or the other, but you're a salesman and you selling Hamilton was at fault. Why don't you cite the unwritten law where a driver has to robotically do everything you thing he should, like driving to the apex to give his enemy opponent the comfort of space. No, I'll keep my line and make harder for him to come and pass after the the turn, it's called strategy.

    No, this is just your opinion. Watch it again and again. It was Max fault and Lewis was given a ridiculous penalty. It could help you if you watch a few corners back on the same lap, where the situation was same with the cars being reversed. There LH could do the same MV did and drive on to MV but he didn’t, he went wide and let MV pass.

    Why is it that nobody realizes that Hamilton was not going to understeer if it wasn't because he saw Verstappen closing in and had to slow down and turn right to try to avoid the crash. Everybody sees what happened and not what was going to happen if Hamilton didn't have to avoid the crash. Hamilton did not slow down to take the curve because he was going at the right speed, but ended up looking as if he made a mistake just because he was forced to slow down and turn right at the same time, which is very hard to do at that high speed without loosing grip. If Hamilton had not slowed down, the crash would've been front wheel to front wheel and with no understeering. Whose fault would it be in that case?

MV to partly blame as well, this isn’t only on LH.

    No I don't agree with you. At those speeds, they were both at fault. He was squeezing Hamilton like in the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix. This time Hamilton refused to be bullied. SO Verstappen pays for his recklessness and bat habit of having what he wants when he wants like a spoilt Brat. You can not be close to the apex everytime. Centrifugal force. Has anyone driving on the circuit to critiseise Hamilton? Try Zandvoort or Spa, you are not always driving close to the Apex. Hamilton was not obliged to be bullied once again.It is psychological. You give in and He keeps bullying you so you NO so that next time he doesn't. He is not the only victim of Verstappen driving style. One day Verstappen may die of always bullying other drivers. You can verify most of his overtakes and see what I am talking about

    Really, this whole incident is getting boring. I have seen worse from drivers like Schumacher, Senna, Prost etc. Fact of the matter - Max is a bully driver and thinks that everyone must give way to him. Hamilton took the inside line and Max took the outside. Max could have slowed down and gone wide but he thought Lewis was going to yet again give way. Lewis was also at risk of being bombed out of the race but wasnt. I am pleased Max is ok but now he will think twice before assuming.

    That's proper BS there, sorry. Not into F1, not a fan neither of Hamilton or Verstappen. In this incident however, Verstappen acted like there was no car besides him and moved into the corner. I also do not see any "strong" understeer by Hamilton, neither in his direction vector not on his steering behaviour. The extra room should have been given by Verstappen, not Hamilton -> but we all know, that will never happen.

    Many pundits considered this a racing incident, I agree with them. Hamilton was in the same situation with 2 other drivers in the same race. He took the lead from Leclerc under very similar conditions. If events turned out different and Hamilton had also lost a front wheel or flipped his car and (God forbid) got injured. I wonder if some people would still unfairly lay the blame entirely on Hamilton. Having said that though, I think he should have put in a kind word for Max at the podium. Race drivers are known to be fiercely competitive though, and this particular rivalry may no longer be healthy.

    2:50 This is incorrect. Hamilton knew that going around the outside wasn't going to work at Copse because he tried that in the sprint race and it didn't work - he even mentions that in an interview somewhere, so he went for the inside. His car didn't understeer, and Max was going even faster at that point round the outside (like ALbon last year), so Lewis wasn't going in too fast for it to oversteer - this is quite clear on both the in car and external video footage. Lewis only suffered understeer when Max hit his front wheel, so it was a result of the collision, not the speed. RBs tyres aren't fully up to temp in the early part of lap one, and this is clear by the fact Lewis can easily keep up with him in the first part of the lap (like he did in the sprint race) but not after (he falls back due to dirty air in the bends after Copse), and the same would have happened here as it did in the sprint race. Then Max's tyres would have been fully in their window and Lewis was unlikely to have caught back up. Lewis hadn't been hugging the apex and keeping off the kerb there all weekend and only took it a little wider on this occasion - probably to keep Max a bit wider. Either way, max turned sharply in to the right after making a correcting after seeing Lewis alongside him and they collided. Lewis could have given a bit more room, but Max certainly had more on the outside to give too, but instead chose to squeeze Lewis with the inevitable collision - Max had been squeezing Lewis since the start with some slight contact even before Copse, and that is in my opinion why the collision happened. The stewards used Lewis's distance from the apex as the primary cause, with no mention of understeer etc, so not even the stewards agree with this account of events. Sky's Karun Chandhok has a good in depth video analysis and so does Jolian Palmer: se-one.info/cycle/m9xnppZgb4SOgbI/video se-one.info/cycle/h9Vle6tnr2ugqpk/video Definitely more of a racing incident, and the penalty was harsh.

    Seems the word "mistake" is being used a lot. While mistakes can happen in this sport, this wasn't one. A calculated maneuver made by one of the world's top drivers. Was it done on purpose? Of course. Was it done with malicious intent? Now that can be debated. These are top athletes at the top of their game. They are doing what it takes to win. Sportsmanship is the only thing in question here. And at the end of the day, thats out the window as well. Winning is what matters in sports, not feelings.

    Verstappen should have gave more room simple he had run off yes it's a balsey move but if Hamilton doesn't go for tht move he's no longer a racer... yes lewis missed the apex but thts prob due bit understeer which is common place round Silverstone aggressive move yes penalty NO!!!JUST RACING INCEDENT NOTHING MORE....so I disagree....

    Totally disagree, replays showed Verstapen looked in his mirrors so he knew exactly where Hamilton was. He thought he could turn In and Hamilton would yield to avoid an accident again for thr 4th time this season, He was wrong and paid the price for his mistake. He was clearly driving for the apex and not leaving any room for the car along side, a 3D model of the accident has shown this.

    I think if Verstappen would have stayed on the racing line down the straight where lewis and he were closest Max wouldn't have been able to take the racing line he was able to take. basically because he drifted to the outside of the corner he was able to cut the corner off. Lewis was 5 feet from the white line in my opinion he has the right to remain 5 feet from the white line around the corner and if Max enters the corner 5 feet from lewis then he has to maintain that distance. There is no I'm expecting Lewis to take this racing line. you said it's the inside driver's responsibility but I disagree it's the outsider driver, Max could have defended the inside line, yes lewis could have taken the outside line but Max would be allowed to drive his race as lewis is allowed to race his. also the point you said that these drivers are top class and should know that full fuel and cold tires they should be able to calculate. wouldn't that be the same for Verstappen lewis's car was never going to be able to hit the same apex Max's car was. so the question is did Max Verstappen turn into Lewis Hamilton? yes and Red Bull also said so. they said Halmilton would have hit Verstappen anyways or maybe Lewis wouldn't been able to avoid the accident, because he was going the fastest into that corner that any other time. the point is red bull is saying look it doesn't matter who's fault it is because Halmilton would have been at fault.

    Uuummmm it's called Racing.....Formula 1 at that.... 1st Lap Crashing is Normal Any Series....I'm my feeble opinion both drivers made decisions at a critical point that had bad results for 1 team....but Hamilton served the Penalty and Came Back and Won In Dramatic Fashion from the driver who had Lead for 50 Laps....That's What We Watch Racing For....

    I'll have to disagree, because it's 2 fold. Per the actual rule book. If a driver in the inside is alongside of another car then you have to give that driver room, which Max did not. He tried to squeeze Hamilton. Secondly through video/images Max tried to cut Lewis off. Ultimately it was Max aggressive driving that caused his demise. Not to mention there was several drivers that passed at that same corner without issue. CL tried to do the same as Max but couldn't hold the line and went wide, which cost him the lead. Lewis just held his ground, he yielded to many times to Max, playing it safe. Lewis just got tired of it and stood his ground. Lastly Max did the same thing in the sprint race and Lewis backed off.

    From day one, it looked obvious to me that Hamilton drove unnecessarily wider than the normal inside racing line. And Verstapen was giving enough space, but needed to turn in a little, and maybe expected Hamilton to not hog all the space.

    I always loved how Lewis never gives up, but this was a little desperate and reckless, not that he'll care, but he lost a bunch of respect from me. You could argue that both drivers had some fault, but in the end, only one of them ended up in the wall and the other with all the points.

    I agree with the analysis apart from one part - how hard Hamilton was really trying to stay on the apex. Hamilton has form for this. He would push Rosberg of the track with such regularity it was a meme. The fact he didn't do it with Button when they were side-by-side because there'd have been a public backlash in the UK shows he knows exactly what he's doing. He'll go in so fast on the inside that he's guaranteed to either come out in front or take the other driver out.

    Look let’s not get so technical. Hamilton was too hot braking and under steered and took Max out.. That was a desperate move and he was rewarded and Max has a destroyed car and a trip to the hospital.NASCAR move.

    Lewis got along side Max on the inside leading up to the corner turn in. Max gets off the brakes a bit earlier and leaps about 3/4 of a car length ahead then turns in. He knew Lewis was on the inside and he knew Lewis was carrying lots of speed but not so much that he’d never make it work. Max should have yielded the corner knowing two cars would never get through there together. Here’s a perfect example where Hamilton on the outside concedes the corner to Raikkonen on the inside and they both race on. se-one.info/cycle/bNOfpaZjfWhkmKY/video (20 seconds into the video)

    I can understand why ppl think it is 100% ham at fault, and that he should have backed out, however, max, knew that being positioned around the outside at copse is a very vulnerable position to be in, yet he stuck with it, instead of backing out. This is why it is a 50-50 more than you might think, since they could both have averted crash had they backed out and conceded. Finally, what took max out, was his tyre coming off the rim, which is a really odd thing to see. Had the tyre stayed on, he would have probably had quite a bit more braking force.

    Verstappen “expected”.. That was the mistake right there. Expectation. When I am driving a 11.5tonne vehicle along the road.. if I ‘EXPECT’ a pedestrian not to walk out of the bank; just having sorted the student loan out.. who now is now very happy that they can get some clothes, and get smashed on the weekend; but first has to go to the main library and sort out those two assignments.. and is listening to music on the tell tale white earpods.. Who has just walked straight out of the bank, straight across the pavement, and has one foot transitioning from paving stone to tarmac.. who has NOT looked in my Direction.. ..then in their perception of the world, I do not exist; but in reality I DO!! Common sense expectation now has that person lying cold on a morgue slab. But in reality, my experience planning, pre-emptive driving skills and reactions; allows that person to live and see another day. (Also I should reasonably be able to expect an apology acknowledgement, or a bit of humble gratitude for accommodating and avoiding THEIR mistake.. but in reality for the TWELVE PLUS times I have saved people from their own stupidity.. I get a defensive snarl and self stupidity denying look like... WHAT ARE YOU DOING... ON A ROAD... IN A VEHICLE... I AM WALKING HERE! A motorcyclist should be able to ‘expect’ that other vehicle users will look at two different points up the road before they pull out.. thereby eliminating the blind spot in the human eyeball... yet 1000’s of motorcyclists are pulled out in front of; and then become tarmac gymnasts or morgue slab statues. Expectation Reality ...you see... Not always the same thing. If Verstappen ‘Expected’ Hamilton not to be where he WAS, because he could not see.. then it was Verstappens OWN fault.. They are rivals too lets not forget. If Hamilton was 1 or 2 feet from the apex deliberately.. I remember a F1 Legend stating that he would put a rival in a position whether or not to have a collision; and leave them with the choice... You have deliberately left the clip out.. But I did not see Hamilton hit Verstappens car.. I SAW Verstappens car hit Hamiltons... and his car came off worse.. so.. bad choice Verstappen. I have no idea why you would defend Verstappens driving.. which is clearly and evidently LESS than Lewis Hamiltons, and at fault. But.. everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    The only comment I would make on this video is that Hamilton's apex was NEVER the "natural line" over the entire weekend. He avoided the curb from FP1 to the final lap, so why would you think that he was aiming or wanting to get on the curb? As a racer yourself, you know that some drivers have their own line because it suits their style or car requirements, especially when battling with a rival.

    People suggesting that somehow Max has been crashed off the track on purpose, how does that happen? The result of a touch like this could see many different scenarios which could have resulted in either, both or neither cars going off the track or losing body parts, this scenario has been played out several time and only ever favours the driver leading the championship, never the chasing driver, were it the last race of the season with Hamilton needing to finish in front of Max then perhaps, but there's no way Hamilton could have afforded to risk ramming Max, there's no contact that will guarantee one car staying on and the other going off.

    No mistake by Hamilton. Can't believe this analysis. There is no obligation to hit the apex. Even after contact Lewis made the corner. The trouble here is you assuming Lewis should have used a certain line.

    Since when does any driver expect his competitors to be on a 'perfect line'. Its racing for F sake. Next you'll be advocating for bumpers around the cars or those little curb finders of the cars of the '50. In reality, it was a racing incident. RB is making a mountain out a mole hill. Ridicules. And I don't want to play the race card but, had it not been Hamilton would all this rhetoric be flying around. I think not. Let's face it, it's a white mans sport.

    Total BS, mate. Clearly Hamilton's car did not go towards the outside of the curve before the collision. The car that produced the collision was definitely Verstappen's. His back wheel came both from behind and from left to right towards Lewis's car. Being the inside drivers does not mean you have to get out of the way of an exterior car bumping into you.

    Your taking the physiology of Verstapen out of the equation, he’s a very aggressive driver be it attack or defence. He had the choice of lift and lose the place or turn in and crash! I’m sick of comments claiming he should have done this or that, but if you want to see F1 progress into a future then you can’t take racing incidents like this too seriously! No one will overtake and the sport will die! It’s already on it’s last legs!

    Lewis's front axle was beyond the middle of Max's car. Is that not substantially alongside? Check the FIA regulations.
