Sao Paulo Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton disqualified from qualifying, Max Verstappen fined 50,000 euros

Lewis Hamilton has been disqualified from qualifying at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix for a technical infringement on his Mercedes car. In a separate verdict, Verstappen was fined 50,000 euros for touching Hamilton’s car after qualifying. Hamilton trails Verstappen by 19 points in the World Championship with four races and a maximum of 107 points available. Hamilton’s car was referred to the stewards after he had set a fastest lap that was 0.438 seconds quicker than Verstappen in Friday’s qualifying session. Stewards said it was clear “that there was insignificant force when Verstappen touched the wing”. And they added that Verstappen’s actions had “no bearing” on the problem with Hamilton’s wing.
