Brundle: Red Bull will be trying to come up with some GPS data

The Formula 1 pundit has explained what Red Bull will present during their video conference on Thursday as they look to trigger a full review into the collision between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.

Formula 1 pundit Martin Brundle believes GPS data will be key to Red Bull's petition to request a review of the penalty that was given to Lewis Hamilton at the British Grand Prix when he made contact with Max Verstappen.

Red Bull have been summoned to a video conference at 16:00 CET on Thursday where they will have to show new evidence to move the case forward. Brundle has previously said Red Bull have told him there is data to prove Hamilton was significantly faster into Copse than at any other time on lap one and he would not have made the corner without running wide, and inevitably contacting Max.

"It's really hard to get new information that the stewards haven't already seen because they have got incredible amounts of data coming off the car and different video angles that we don't get access to," Brundle told Sky Sports.

"Red Bull will be trying to come up with some GPS data to say that Hamilton was much faster in there, had no intention of making the corner, was using Verstappen to get around the corner, did he open the steering wheel anywhere that we hadn't seen up until now, should he have gone much further to the right, did Max leave him racing room. All of those things."

The collision caused Verstappen to retire from the race whilst Hamilton went on to win the British GP to cut his deficit to the Dutchman in the Drivers' Championship to eight points. It's an incident that will go down in F1 history according to Brundle.

"We are approaching halfway through the world championship now and this is an incident that we will be talking about for years," said Brundle.

"If it decides who might be the world champion this year, it will be talked about for decades like [Ayrton] Senna and [Alain] Prost.
