Red Bull request review into Hamilton penalty after Verstappen crash

  • Team urge FIA to re-examine case in light of new evidence
  • Hamilton trails by eight points before Hungarian Grand Prix

Red Bull have requested an official review into Lewis Hamilton’s penalty following his crash with Max Verstappen at the British Grand Prix. Hamilton was handed a 10-second punishment by the stewards but the seven-time world champion recovered to claim a controversial win at Silverstone, while Verstappen’s afternoon ended in the barriers.

However, Red Bull felt Hamilton’s penalty was too lenient and have called on Formula One’s governing body, the FIA, to re-examine the case. Red Bull will now present new evidence of the accident to the stewards, who will convene to decide whether there should be a review.
