Verstappen crashes into the fences at Silverstone after a touch with Hamilton in the race

The Great Britain Grand Prix, the tenth of the World Cup Formula One, was interrupted, with a red flag, almost as soon as it began, after the accident of the leader of the same, the Dutch Max verstappen (Red Bull), who abandoned in the first of the 52 laps of the same.

Verstappen, who started from the ‘pole’, defended himself from the attack of the seven-time world champion Lewis hamilton (Mercedes) – second in the World Championship, 33 points behind the previous one – in the first corners. But in Copse, the ninth of the 18 of the circuit of Silverstone, the Mercedes of the Englishman touched with the right rear tire of the Red Bull of the Dutch; which crashed, fortunately without major physical consequences, against the protective barriers.

At the time of the interruption, the Spanish Fernando Alonso (Alpine) and Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) occupied the seventh and eighth places; and the mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull), who had started from the ‘pit lane’, the nineteenth.
