3 place grid penalty for Max and 2 points on his license. Surprisingly

The British commentators thought it was Hamilton's fault. He definitely moved to the left AFTER passing the limiting line.

Not a chance it was Hamilton's fault. He may have been squeezed but Verstappen refused to take any form of avoiding action. On a different day he may have been lucky enough to get away with it being a racing incident but there was already an earlier incident where Hamilton was squeezed by Verstappen on the second chicane but he chose to go off track to avoid a collision. The truth is if Max took action to avoid a collision then Red Bull could have made a case to the stewards about Hamilton not leaving room but he was hot headed and made a mess of it.
Horner and Verstappen also might be regretting making such a fuss about Hamilton risking Verstappen's safety at Silverstone given that they also landed a car on top of Hamilton's head.

I’m not sure if you are watching practice live but due to the 99-100% “certainty” of rain tomorrows F3 race 1 has been moved to this afternoon , and now they are talking about F1 qualifying on Sunday

90's vibe from that qualifying with McLaren, Ferrari and Williams in the top three! Really enjoyed that qualifying, pleased to see Lando get his first pole although he's rightfully wary of the slipstream off the line. Carlos Sainz his ex-teammate alongside on the front row too. Mega result from George to get the Williams in third.
