Brundle: Red Bull claim to have damning Hamilton data

The Formula 1 pundit has revealed Red Bull have evidence that Lewis Hamilton entered Copse corner on lap one significantly quicker than any other time in the race.

Formula 1 pundit Martin Brundle has revealed that Red Bull have data to prove that Lewis Hamilton entered Copse corner on the first lap faster than any other occasion during the British Grand Prix.

Hamilton collided with title rival Max Verstappen on the opening lap at Copse at high-speed which resulted in the Red Bull driver retiring from the race. Red Bull are yet to rule out an appeal and Brundle says the team may have new evidence which would be needed to make an appeal to the FIA.

"Red Bull felt it was a professional foul, an intentional accident from Hamilton," Brundle wrote in his post-race Sky Sports F1 column. "They were incandescent, their potential world champion was bruised, their car expensively wrecked in this new cost cap era, and with possible grid penalties to come from any engine and ancillary damage.

"They would score zero points from the race and both championship leads would be seriously eroded. I am told by Red Bull there is data to prove Lewis was significantly faster into Copse than at any other time and he would not have made the corner without running wide, and inevitably contacting Max.

"Presumably, that will be made publicly available and if Red Bull feel they have 'new evidence' they may well make an appeal to the FIA as to their perceived degree of fault and leniency regarding Hamilton."

Brundle thinks the 10-second time penalty for Hamilton means the stewards saw it as a 70/30 incident with the blame, going towards the seven-time world champion. He also feels that a collision between Hamilton and Verstappen was inevitable.

"Watching Lewis over the decades it's clear that he's not a fundamentally dirty driver, although of course, he has had a couple of left-front against right-rear skirmishes with Red Bull's Alex Albon in more recent times," added Brundle.

"Max is super aggressive, and we love him for that, but Lewis decided he was going to counter that aggression. This incident was only a matter of time.

"Unfortunately, it happened at Copse corner, one of the world's fastest. We have seen many key overtakes here over the decades, always needing bravery, skill and some risk.

"But just as at some of the scariest of corners like Eau Rouge at Spa and the old 130R at Suzuka, it's not out of bounds for an overtake as Hamilton ably demonstrated 50 laps later when he seized the lead from Leclerc at the very same spot. It was that kind of race."
