Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen involved in high-speed collision at British Grand Prix

Hamilton made a number of attempts to overtake Verstappen on that first lap and when the drivers arrived at Copse Corner, the Briton’s front-left wheel touched the Red Bull driver’s back-right tire.

Verstappen span off the track and across the gravel before crashing into the barriers, though the Dutchman was able to walk away from his wrecked car.

The race was suspended with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in the lead.
