At Silverstone, Red Bull fumes as Lewis Hamilton delights the audience with triumph

Lewis Hamilton has stated that he does not feel the need to apologise to Max Verstappen for the incident at the British Grand Prix, which sent his title opponent to the hospital for precautionary tests. At Copse turn on the first lap, Hamilton collided with Verstappen's vehicle as the two contended for the lead. After the collision during the race, Verstappen crashed out, and the Dutchman accused him of "dangerous, rude, and unsportsmanlike behaviour." Hamilton had placed Verstappen's life in jeopardy, according to Horner, who called him an "amateur" and "desperate." Helmut Marko, Red Bull's head of racing, joined the clamour, urging that Hamilton be banned as a penalty.

Hamilton was given a 10-second time penalty, which he paid at his sole pit stop, but he battled back to catch and past Ferrari's Charles Leclerc three laps from the finish to win his eighth British Grand Prix.

Hamilton will not face any additional punishment because of the severity of the penalty already imposed and the fact that Red Bull is considering but unlikely to file an appeal. As a consequence of the victory and Verstappen's DNF, Hamilton's championship lead over the Dutchman has shrunk from 33 to eight points.
