“Nobody wants the championship to be decided by accidents or penalties”. Ross Brawn in his usual post-race analysis on Monday he focused on a more than acceptable interpretation of the British Grand Prix won by Lewis Hamilton. The race will go down in history for the contact during the first lap at the Copse with Max Verstappen, who had the worst ending ruinously against the protection barriers with an impact at 51 G of force.
Hamilton-Verstappen accident, drivers agree: “Difficult to judge”
Brawn says he is sorry for losing a great protagonist and, probably, a legendary race: “We saw the protagonists of the title fight go wheel to wheel once again, but this time the battle ended with a collision that ended Max’s race. It was a huge relief to see him get out of the car and drive away earlier. to go to the hospital for precautionary checks. As is always the case in these matters, there will be a wide range of opinions on who is right or wrong between the two drivers. What is clear is that an exciting battle has been taken away from us spectators and no one wants the championship to be decided on accidents and penalties, and, as in this case, a serious risk for both drivers. It is something that both pilots will reflect on. I hope to avoid these incidents in the future because I think yesterday we have been denied a fantastic battle. They raced against each other for half a turn, and it was thrilling. Imagine how dramatic the grand prix would have been if the race had been like this for the entire duration of the grand prix ”.
