What the Verstappen/Hamilton Brazil crash teaches F1 about a 2021 rematch

By:

OPINION: Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton crashed into each other yet again in last weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix. But it was more 50-50 than the stewards’ ruling reflected and also offered fascinating insight into the thinking of two Formula 1 legends.

Imola 2021, Silverstone 2021, Monza 2021, Jeddah 2021 and now Interlagos 2022.

At the venue where they also clashed controversially but didn’t actually make contact last year, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton collided yet again. In a race packed with storylines thanks to George Russell’s impressive maiden Formula 1 win and teammate wars across the grid, this was surely the headline act.

It wrecked Verstappen’s quest to end 2022 with a perfect run of five wins (and a possible total of 16) and was a key factor in Mercedes finally ending its 21-race win drought.
