Hamilton fumes: Verstappen keeps running me out of road

Lewis Hamilton has said that he's learning not to try going around the outside of Max Verstappen, as he knows he will be run out of road.

Lewis Hamilton has said that Max Verstappen will continue to race as he does, as he "gets away" with his driving style.

The two title rivals collided for the second time in five races at Monza, with Verstappen's Red Bull ending up on top of Hamilton's Mercedes after a failed overtaking attempt at Turns 1 and 2.

Following an investigation by the stewards, Verstappen was given a three-place grid penalty for the Russian Grand Prix in two weeks' time.

Speaking after Sunday's Italian Grand Prix, Hamilton explained that he's learning not to hang on around the outside of Verstappen when they battle, as he feels he will be run out of road.

"If you look at the start of the race, the same incident or similar, when I went to try to go around the outside of Max," began Hamilton in conversation with the media, including RacingNews365.com, when asked about their clash and their earlier incident at Turn 4 on the opening lap.

"We're both the top drivers, well experienced.

"I know that I can't go around the outside of Max. You've seen it in Imola, he runs you out of road. You've seen it at Turn 4 [at Monza]... in all instances I've moved out of the way to avoid incidents and gone over the kerbs.

"I was ahead in Turn 1. I left enough room, like a car width on the outside, going into the corner, but we barrelled the similar sort of speed into the corner and I was ahead going into Turn 2.

"Ultimately, he lost control over the kerb and went into me, so I don't feel at fault. I got hit from behind.

"There's a point in which you have to concede you're not going to make the corner and go across... everyone has generally gone across those kerbs and I'm not quite sure why Max didn't."

Asked whether he feels that Verstappen's aggressive racing style is at odds with the racing code of conduct, Hamilton said it's important that some lessons are learned from their clashes.

With the pair colliding at high speed at Silverstone, it's the second race out of the last five that has resulted in a scary incident between the two.

"I need to have a think because I don't think I've ever been hit on the head by a car before. It's quite a shock for me because, if you've seen the image, my head really is quite far forward," Hamilton said of the footage of Verstappen's car coming to rest on the Halo of the Mercedes.

"I've been racing a long, long time, so I'm so grateful that I'm still here and feel incredibly blessed. I feel like someone was watching me.

"This will continue until we have to learn from our scenarios on track. I don't have a history of these incidents.

"Ultimately, when you get away with things like that, then it's easy just to continue to do it."
