Sainz expects driver talks over Hamilton and Verstappen incident

It looks like the controversial clash between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen at the Italian Grand Prix will be a key topic at the next drivers' briefing.

Carlos Sainz believes that the incident between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen at the Italian Grand Prix will be a key subject of discussion amongst the drivers at their next briefing.

The title rivals collided at Turn 2 on Lap 26 of the race at Monza, with Verstappen's Red Bull ending up on top of the Mercedes. Both drivers were eliminated from the Grand Prix and the stewards later gave Verstappen a three-place grid penalty for his role in the clash.

Inevitably, the latest run-in between the World Championship contenders has sparked a lot of reaction.

Sainz believes that the crash was potentially avoidable, but has resisted sharing his full opinion, as he expects the incident to be discussed amongst the drivers.

"I think it is always avoidable," Sainz told select media including RacingNews365.com. "I think two [drivers] don't crash if one doesn't want [to].

"This is one that they are always fighting as tough as they have to fight for a championship. You're more exposed to these kinds of incidents [in that scenario], like we've seen in the past.

"I guess it's a natural thing in Formula 1, two guys that are fighting for the championship tend to collide more often than not.

"From my point of view, the accident is pretty clear. I'm not going to go into detail, I'm not going to give you my opinion because I feel like there's going to be some talk [about it] in the next driver meeting."

Sainz's Ferrari teammate, Charles Leclerc, agrees that this kind of incident is not unusual in a battle for the World Championship.

"It's normal to see those types of accidents," the Monegasque said. "They are fighting for a World Championship, and both want to win very badly, as I would if I was in their position.

"It's understandable to see those types of fights, as you've probably seen and as we've seen in the past happening.

"I won't comment on the crash [between Hamilton and Verstappen]."
