Red Bull has launched a crash petition for Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.
Following the controversial incidents during the British Grand Prix, Red Bull has created a petition.
Red Bull has filed a petition to investigate Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen’s dramatic incident at the British Grand Prix last weekend. On the first lap, the two title contenders collided, knocking Verstappen out of the race before Hamilton won at Silverstone.
The petition filed by Red Bull is seeking a right of appeal of Hamilton’s penalty from last Sunday’s British Grand Prix.
Hamilton overcame a 10-second time penalty for his role in the altercation in front of nearly 140,000 supporters.
After a spectacular comeback, the seven-time world champion soared to victory on his home track.
Hamilton’s lead over Verstappen at the top of the 2021 World Drivers’ Championship has shrunk to to eight points.
Verstappen, who looked noticeably winded following the 180mph shunt, was at a local hospital for further checks as Hamilton celebrated his fourth win of the season.
Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner took a shot at Hamilton’s racing style after the race.
“All drivers, no matter how experienced or good, face a build-up of pressure at times,” he remarked.
“For Hamilton, becoming the hunter rather than the hunted in front of his home audience after being defeated the day before at a track that has long been a Mercedes bastion was a moment of intense pressure in the championship.”
Red Bull’s request must include a “significant and relevant new factor that was unavailable to the parties seeking the review at the time of the judgment concerned” in order to be granted.

On Thursday, July 29, the first day of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, representatives from Red Bull Racing and Mercedes will participate in a video conference.
Mercedes is sticking by Hamilton, claiming that he followed all of the existing overtaking rules during the collision.
The reigning constructors’ champions believe the 10-second penalty is excessive.
Verstappen will be more driven now, according to Horner, to reclaim his healthy lead in the drivers’ standings.
