Lewis Hamilton reveals he phoned bitter F1 rival Max Verstappen after their crash at Silverstone because he wanted to ‘break the ice’ to avoid future accidents… before Dutchman smashed into his head in Italy!

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he spoke to title rival Max Verstappen over the phone following their crash at the British Grand Prix earlier this year. The crash at Silverstone sparked a row with Verstappen tweeting from hospital that his rival was ‘disrespectful’ and ‘unsportsmanlike’. The drivers collided on lap 26 at Monza, with the Red Bull car’s wheel landing on Hamilton’s head. In an increasingly heated world championship duel the two drivers both accused the other of being in the wrong after the race, with Hamilton saying Verstappen ‘knew what was going to happen, but he still did it.’. Hamilton is currently two points ahead of bitter rival Verstappen with the Turkish Grand Prix up next this weekend.
