Video: Lewis Hamilton Escapes Serious Injury After Nasty Crash With Max Verstappen

Reigning champion Lewis Hamilton escaped a massive tragedy at the Formula One Italian Grand Prix as title rival Max Verstappen’s car flew over his head after they took each other out of the race on Sunday, September 12. 

Both the racers crashed out of the Italian GP after hitting each other halfway through the race as the protective Halo device prevented a serious injury that might have happened to Hamilton. 

Red Bull driver Verstappen tried to dart past Hamilton just after the Briton’s pit stop but ended up with his back wheel rolling over the top of his rival’s Mercedes, narrowly missing Hamilton’s head. 

The drivers then slid into the gravel and were forced to retire from the race, which Hamilton was hoping to make his 100th Grand Prix victory.
