Mercedes’ Toto Wolff worried title race could go too far
Lewis Hamilton said he was reminded of his own mortality and the risks he takes competing in Formula One after his crash with Max Verstappen at the Italian Grand Prix. The world champion was lucky to escape without serious injury after he was hit in the head by Verstappen’s car at Monza on Sunday.
“It’s a big shock. I’ve been racing a long time and we are taking risks out there all the time,” said Hamilton, who has been competing in F1 since 2007 and is now in his 15th season. “It’s only when you experience something like that that you get that real shock and you look at life and realise how fragile we are.”
