Lammers: Rare mistake? Hamilton often makes them

While many believe Lewis Hamilton's mistake at Imola was a rare one, Jan Lammers disagrees. The former F1 driver believes that seeing the seven-time world champion punished for his error was the rare occurrence.

Lewis Hamilton saw his chances of taking victory at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix dashed when he went off track before the red flag, but former F1 driver Jan Lammers isn't buying into the notion that the mishap by the seven-time world champion was a rare one.

Formula 1 delivered another fascinating race at Imola, with Max Verstappen coming out on top of his title rival. Hamilton looked set to challenge the Dutchman for the lead after both drivers pitted on a drying track, however the Mercedes driver ran wide and onto the gravel before saving his race by reversing out of the wall.

Lammers tells RacingNews365.com the Brit isn't bulletproof and has slipped up in the past, with the only difference being that he was punished this time.

"Hamilton often makes mistakes," said Lammers. "His mistakes were never punished because he drove the best car and always got away with it.

"Hamilton is often there when it matters, but certainly at Imola you saw that everyone was vulnerable due to the circumstances."

Verstappen almost had his own adventure off track only to save his car from spinning shortly before the restart.

"It is a case of glass half full or empty," Lammers added. "If you look closely, it was flawless. He almost made a mistake, but you can also say that he did a fantastic job saving his car!

"If he spun, it would have been a real mistake. So you see, in that situation a mistake can happen but that was all part of the weekend."

Nevertheless Lammers was impressed with Verstappen's overall race, praising him for taking the lead early on.

"Verstappen got off to a good start, both in response and in execution," Lammers stated. "He had to force his leading position in the first corner combination, but it all looked good.

"The Red Bull driver knew that the lead would be so important and during the start he immediately made the difference. "
