Lewis Hamilton Wins British Grand Prix 2021 After High-Speed Collision

Lewis Hamilton Wins British Grand Prix 2021 After High-Speed Collision

Lewis Hamilton is a winner following a scary moment.

The Formula One world champion secured the win after a high-speed collision on the opening lap of the race with Max Verstappen on Sunday (July 19).

Despite getting a time penalty for the crash, Lewis managed to overtake Charles Leclerc two laps from the finish, resulting in his eighth British Grand Prix win, via CNN.

The collision happened after Lewis attempted to overtake Max in the first lap, accidentally causing Max to spin off the track and onto the gravel, crashing into the barriers. Despite the wreck, he was able to walk away.

“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,” Red Bull said in a statement afterward.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said Lewis was “completely out of order.”

“Everyone who’s driven that corner knows you don’t stick a wheel up the inside at Copse. He’s put him in the fence. Thank god he’s not been hurt. It was a desperate move,” he said.

“I was ahead coming in there. It was my line. I was giving the guy space,” Lewis said of the driving decision.

This is Lewis Hamilton‘s 99th race victory.
