Lewis Hamilton: Penalty for collision with Max Verstappen ‘harsh’, says Mercedes chief

But Allison said the FIA’s own guidelines for race stewards gave Hamilton the right to make the attempt and not give way to Verstappen. “And it requires that you must be able to make the corner. By ‘make the corner’, it means go round the corner and not leave the track or lose control of the car. “If you can go round the corner, if you are substantially alongside the other car, then the corner is yours. Allison added the speed of Copse corner, which is taken at 190mph in an F1 car, “makes no difference”. But Allison said: “I can understand people, who maybe don’t understand there is no obligation on you to hit the apex of the corner, that you don’t have to have your whole car in front of the other car.
