Verstappen gets penalty for F1 Italian GP incident with Hamilton

The duo made contact at the first chicane after Hamilton, coming out of the pits, defended the line going into Turn 2.

Verstappen went off track and ran over the sausage kerbs, his Red Bull car crashing into Hamilton’s Mercedes. Both retired on the spot.

Although both drivers blamed each other for the accident, the stewards deemed Verstappen was to blame and gave him a three-place grid penalty for the Russian GP in two weeks.

“The Stewards determined that his [Hamilton’s] position was reasonable and therefore find that the driver of Car 33 was predominantly to blame for the incident,” the stewards said.
