In the closing moments of Spanish Grand Prix Qualifying Q2, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell were involved in a collision that damaged Lewis’ car.
The two drivers collided when Lewis, who was on a flying lap, attempted to overtake the young Briton. George did not leave any space and forced Lewis off the track, and after the collision Lewis’ front wing picked up damage.
Immediately following the incident Lewis told his race engineer:

“George just backed off. That’s really dangerous. I might have some damage on the car.”
George also talked to his race engineer:
“You didn’t tell me there was a car behind. I’m sorry guys.”
So, obviously George was not aware that Lewis was approaching. After Qualifying, both drivers have been summoned to the stewards.
