Hamilton Verstappen crash shown via remarkable 360-degree cameras

Hamilton Verstappen crash shown via remarkable 360-degree cameras

F1 has released dramatic footage of Lewis Hamilton's crash with Max Verstappen in the Italian Grand Prix shown from 360-degree cameras.

The F1 title rivals were involved in a dramatic collision midway through the race at Monza that culminated in Verstappen's Red Bull violently rolling over the top of Hamilton's Mercedes.

From the camera on the nose of Hamilton's car, in particular, it captures the moment the RB16B hits Hamilton on the helmet, with the halo coming to his aid.

Hamilton sustained a sore neck, leading to both the Briton and team principal Toto Wolff declaring the halo had saved the life of the seven-time champion.

The cameras are nothing new as they have been on F1 cars since 2018 but footage has never been aired during the main broadcast.

So far, only a few selected scenes have been released on F1's YouTube channel, including Hamilton's pole laps of Singapore and Monaco in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

What do you think?

More proof that it was Lewis's corner, absolutely no doubt. Max just ran Lewis off the circuit. Deliberately.

Max should get a ban for what he did, not a slap on the wrist. 3 place drop needs replaced by a 3 race ban.

Anybody running F1 reporting websites (especially one I used to support and even have written for) defends Max in this has some serious issues.

Deliberate or not is the issue? MM comments: "That's what happens when u don't leave me space" stinks of entitlement & premeditation. Definitely needs a race ban or 3 to think bout his place in the sport. Suppose something will be done the day he kills someone God forbid. In a court of law would be amazed if he could get off as lightly as he did, suppose that's the modus operandi of RBR can't beat em then take em out. What bout "we race as one" total BS if and only if MM is in front & who is he? No championships yet & this is how he behaves? Was he not the same MM that wanted to hit Ocon back in Brazil, when is stringent action race ban or 3 gonna be given to this guy? suppose when its too late, then what? Actions were neither safe nor sportsman like. What BS to say "unfortunate" goes to show the true color of RBR

Agree with anything you say. Only question is, who is MM?
