Red Bull launch official protest against Lewis Hamilton’s ‘lenient’ British GP penalty for Max Verstappen crash

LEWIS HAMILTON is set for an explosive showdown with Max Verstappen ahead of the Hungarian GP. Red Bull are livid that the Brit was given a “lenient” 10-second penalty after being found guilty of crashing into Verstappen on lap one of the British GP and want the incident reviewed. In the wake of the incident Red Bull boss Christian Horner said Hamilton’s penalty was “light” and, “given the severity of the incident and the lenient penalty”, they were reviewing all their options. Horner was also critical of Hamilton’s over-exuberant celebrations in front of 140,000 fans as he went on to win the British GP, with Verstappen still in hospital. Verstappen’s retirement and Hamilton’s victory helped him reduce the Red Bull man’s advantage in the championship to eight points.
