Wurz: Hamilton/Verstappen crash was in 'grey line' territory

GPDA Chairman Alex Wurz has shared his thoughts on the British Grand Prix collision, and is hopeful of penalties becoming more consistent in time.

Alex Wurz has shared his thoughts on the collision between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone, with the GPDA (Grand Prix Driver's Association) chairman believing that both drivers fully respect the other.

Wurz believes the drama surrounding the incident after the pair collided at Copse is being stirred up by those around them, but that Hamilton and Verstappen themselves might not be as worked up.

"They have real tremendous respect from each other," Wurz told Sky Sports News.

"I've been in meetings with both of them. I respect them dearly. Sensational drivers, we are witnessing some of the best drivers in motorsport history fighting it out.

"But, of course, the pressure will get to their team bosses, to their managers, to themselves, and therefore there will be or might be some interviews, some exchanges in words, gestures, or whatever which come from the emotion.

"But the bottom line is I guarantee you that each and every racing driver respects the other one, and especially if they are as talented as Max and Lewis."

With Hamilton's penalty of ten seconds dividing the sport, with some believing it too lenient, and others believing it too harsh, Wurz explained that the process of working out how best to apply a penalty that's fair and proportionate is an ongoing one.

"The GPDA are sitting down with the FIA and running through many situations, accidents and incidents and helping to have a joint understanding of what is acceptable and not acceptable," Wurz explained.

"But, of course, there is the 'racing incident' and in my opinion this is what happened in Silverstone. These two drivers were racing hard, and they had contact and, in my opinion, it was a racing incident.

"There is always a spectrum of percentage who is more at fault or less at fault, but bottom line is it's not very clear and therefore it's a racing incident.

"If it is in this grey line territory that's where I personally think the description racing incident is the best one to use.

"Can there be more consistency? Yes. This is what we are really working on with the FIA and we are saluting their effort to have multiple meetings between all the stewards to come together, to look at the incidents, and then give a judgement between themselves and try to improve the collective output.

"Will it always be a million per cent fair? No, we are not there yet, but of course the aim is to be as fair as possible."
