The dramatic collision between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen is to be reviewed after a request from Red Bull.

Red Bull believes the 10-second penalty incurred by Hamilton was insufficient.

Stewards judged Hamilton to be “predominantly to blame” for the crash which occurred in the first lap of the British Grand Prix.

According to the BBC, Red Bull must provide new evidence that wasn’t originally available to the stewards at the time of the crash.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner says the incident has cost the team approximately $1.8 million.

The 36-year-old Mercedes driver won the British Grand Prix after overtaking teammate Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc.

Verstappen tweeted about the collision from hospital during the podium ceremony, labeling Hamilton’s celebrations as “unsportsmanlike” and “disrespectful”.


The next race is scheduled for Sunday at the Hungaroring track in Hungary.
