A red flag has brought the British Grand Prix at Silverstone to a halt after just one lap as Max Verstappen’s Red Bull careened off the track and into the tyre barrier after a crash with world title rival Lewis Hamilton.

The 2021 Championship leader started on pole but soon found himself in a pulsating dogfight with Hamilton. The Mercedes driver, in pursuit of his eighth win at his home track, had nudged his car marginally ahead and on the inside line as the pair entered the final corner.

But Verstappen quickly drew level and was directed at the corner’s apex when Hamilton’s front left made contact with the rear right of the Red Bull.

Hamilton sustained marginal damage to his car, but Verstappen was flipped around and hurtled across the gravel and out of the race at great speed.

Red Bull’s team prince Christian Horner demanded action, stating that “[Hamilton] was never anywhere near level”, blaming the Brit for putting his driver out of action.
