Lewis Hamilton 'was not lucky' during Max Verstappen crash as F1 expert weighs in

“We also had the [Romain] Grosjean fireball incident in November 2020 and again the Halo came to the fore there, along with other safety measures such as the deformable nose cone protection, in-helmet safety system and the barrier itself.

“It’s been shown the Halo is now one of the major safety devices that has served all drivers who are racing single-seaters from F1 all the way through to Formula 4.

“As this crash has proven, the Halo is exceptionally strong and is integral to other safety-critical elements within the car.

“Hamilton experiencing Verstappen’s car coming on top is probably around the equivalent of close to a London double-decker bus landing on top of the car.”

Formula 1 returns for the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi on September 26, with Red Bull’s Verstappen holding a slender five-point lead over seven-time world champion Hamilton.
