Exactly as had happened after the Silverstone episode, the incident that occurred between Max Verstappen And Lewis Hamilton at the Prima Variante di Monza is destined to monopolize the debate for the next few weeks. If in Great Britain the commissioners had attributed the responsibility for the incident to Hamilton, complete with a 10-second penalty then ‘canceled’ by the British, able to win the home race anyway, this time the pendulum of guilt has been moved towards the Red Bull driver. According to the stewards, in fact, the “Greater guilt” of the contact on Sunday is to be attributed to the idol of the Dutch public.
The F1 Managing Director also wanted to speak on the accident and its short- and long-term consequences, Ross Brawn. In his usual GP analysis for the official F1 website, the former Ferrari strategist pointed out that neither contender is willing to let go. “I’m sure the fans will be divided – wrote Brawn, revealing himself to be an easy prophet – it is clear that both pilots could have avoided the accident. I think this is another consequence of the fact that there are two guys going head to head and they don’t want to give up an inch. It’s a shame they ended up in the gravel, because it could have been a great race and we were deprived of that. I’m interested to see what impact this will have [incidente] on their battle for the title. We have already experienced Silverstone, which was an important and controversial incident “.
The English manager, however, expressed doubts that the Monza accident will change the dynamics existing between the two rivals. In addition, Brawn was also concerned that the title could be awarded by an accident or a decision of the commissioners. “Personally, I wouldn’t say that [l’incidente] changed the dynamics. There are two roosters in the chicken coop at the moment and we are seeing the consequences of that. I don’t think either of us will back down for the rest of the year. But I hope that the championship will be won on the track and not in the barriers or in the commissioners’ room “ he concluded.
