The Hungarian Grand Prix was discontinued on the opening lap following a collision on turn 1 on Sunday that took out five cars involving Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull of Sergio Perez.
Lewis Hamilton who is a seven-time world champion was forward in the commotion in the rain but Max Verstappen occurred staggering off the road to head into the pits for restorations during the rivalry race when the red flag was faded.
Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari, Lance Stroll’s Aston Martin and Lando Norris’ McLaren are among the cars which were hit out of the race due to their involvement in the accident.
This reminds us of the previously happened incident two weeks ago at the Silverstone, during the British Grand Prix. It had a similar start when Hamilton and Verstappen were involved in the controversial race in the opening lap.
Hamilton was punished with a penalty of ten seconds before he won the event while Verstappen went spinning off and got complicated into a collision. This sparked a fortnight of recrimination among Red Bull and Mercedes and the possibility is it will be continued after Bottas seemingly resulted in the first lap of disturbance in Hungary.
Bottas began unhurriedly and the time Norris arrived around him, the Finn braked delayed which built a domino effect of the shield cars.
