Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are both out of the Italian Grand Prix after once again crashing into each other on lap 26 of the race, as the championship battle ramped up once again in Monza at the Rettifilo chicane.
Lewis Hamilton has fumed on the radio at championship leader Max Verstappen, claiming the Dutchman “pushed him wide” during the opening laps of the Italian Grand Prix.
After starting fourth on the grid, Hamilton got past Lando Norris and was pulling up alongside Verstappen, but the reigning world champion had to back out of the move and ran wide, handing the place back to the McLaren of Norris.
Shortly after the Virtual Safety Car was called out – after Antonio Giovinazzi spun on the first lap and left debris on the track.
“He’s pushed me wide,” Hamilton was heard saying, however the stewards believed there was no investigation necessary between the two.
