Hamilton to seek specialist treatment after being "saved" by halo

Hamilton to seek specialist treatment after being "saved" by halo
Ian Parkes & Sam Hall

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he will be seeing a specialist after his latest Italian GP crash with F1 title rival Max Verstappen from which he was left thanking God for the halo he feels saved his life.

On lap 25 at Monza, Verstappen attacked Hamilton through the Rettifilio chicane, only to hit the sausage kerbs that launched his Red Bull onto the top of Hamilton's Mercedes.

The Red Bull's rear tyre then rolled forward across the halo but still made contact with Hamilton's helmet, leaving the seven-time champion with a "sore neck".

Speaking almost two hours later, Hamilton said: “I’m in a little bit of pain to be honest, in my neck.

"It’s feeling like it's getting a little bit worse as the adrenaline rush wears off but I’ll work with [physiotherapist] Angela [Cullen] to fix it.

“Honestly, I feel very fortunate today. Thank God for the halo that ultimately I think saved me, that saved my neck."

Conceding all he could think immediately after the incident were the positions he was losing and returning to the track, Hamilton explained he is likely to seek specialist treatment for the increasing neck pain.

“His rear wheel landed on my head," added Hamilton. "I think the rear wheel landed on the halo and I think the inside of the most cambered part of the tyre landed on my head. “I think Angela is going to be travelling with me these next days but I think I probably will need to see a specialist just to make sure I’m good for the next race.

“It’s getting tighter and tighter but as I said, I’ll live.”

What do you think?

Lewis caused the crash by pushing Max off track.

Lewis caused the crash in England

Lewis keeps crashing other drivers

Lewis should learn to drive.

Never needed to learn how to drive as he didn't had a competitor while driving the fastest car.

Now he has competition by a slightly slower car, and he keeps causing crashes .

Verstappen has the same mindset as Senna had and is a danger to all the other drivers. Let's hope he learns something soon. I doubt it.

Stone cold tires, and squeezing competitor off track.

That is Lewis, not Max.

So you comment is BS

@MrDee

Why didn't Max check Lewis was alright?

After all the ***** Red Bull threw at Lewis at Silverstone they didn't even check he was ok.

Rhymes with anchor.

Max Verstappen will kill someone one day and will not even care and even then, his blind supporters will not see any thing wrong with it. What am ungentlemanly and egoistic character. Thank God for the halo.

Oh, you bunch of cry babies. You are just like Red Bull and Mercedes, two parents trying to make excuses to shift the blame from their children to get their penalty lessened. Don't you guys get tired of hearing yourself whine? Look at it objectively for once.

Max and Lewis have the same determination and that's why they collide. Lewis tried to squeeze Max off and Max didn't take it. Max shouldn't have put his car on the inside and that's why he was predominantly to blame. The move was 'too late', hence predominantly. Lewis caused the crashed hy squeezing him. Racing inchident as LeClerq would say. Stop whining about Silverstone and trying to use it as an excuse that Max was allowed to do this. He shouldn't have and he knows, but he made a point. You always have to leave the space!

Not saying this wasn't the best outcome for Max tho

Thankful Lewus is okay, keep fighting and you'll come out on top. Very scary to watch, can't imagine what it felt like experiencing it. Verstappen should apologise, especially for his comment while still in the car. Verstappen has a very big ego and needs to learn when to be humble.

Lewis isn't okay

He is the definition of madness

Trying to drive away with a car on tour roof and people walking around your car...

Trying to squeeze people off the track with stone cold tires.

And don't forget the incident he caused at Silverstone.

Complete madness

Look at lab one with same turn, but Noris vs Lewis.

Look at the space Lewis left there...

Lewis had cold tires and had a blue flag to warn him about multiple drivers coming in with much more speed.

Lewis gave space initially for Max to take the outside.

Once Max was on the outside, Lewis squeezed Max off-track and eventually even crashed into Max.

If Lewis was a great driver, he wouldn't have given max space in the first place.

But he gave space initially (causing Max to drive besides him), and then pushed max off the track. Again: see lap 1 where Lewis was in the same situation with Noris, but where Lewis left more space.

Identical to Silverstone: with Max he drivers 10 feet away from the kerbs, with LeClerc he drives against the kerbs.

I see that just like Verstappen, his fans expect all the other drivers to just get out of his way.

Over the years I've seen alot of drivers just like Verstappen, at all levels: quick, an talented, but with no appreciation of when to back out of a move. Guess what that all had in common? They crashed alot.

MrDee the race stewards know a lot more than you,that is why they are there doing that job and not you.

Max got 3 grid place penalty and 2 points on his license,DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW FOOL.

Lewis caused the accident! As he does with so many accidents he is responsible for, he blames it on Verstappen. Hamilton is a danger to other drivers but he's black British and entitled so he gets a by ball, ever since Glock's crash. If his name was Schumacher, you'd all be yowling disqualification.

Max went to tight in the corner, but Lewis still turned into him ? Max made the first mistake but lewis just made a mistake too. What did he think about turning into a car ?

Your right,in keeping eitb this headline,lewis seems tk think he has ALWAYS worn a halo,looking back over his career he hasn't been a shining example of sportmanship,i know you don't win by not pushing but he should push forward not sideways.he once said he was constantly being bought in front of stewards "because he was black" . Wrong!! He was in front of stewards because his driving was bloody dangerous!

He is undeniably an execeptional driver but even the best get beaten,he needs to accept the inevitable
