At the Italian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was involved in a clash with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri, while trying to overtake him at the entry to the Variante della Roggia.
The two drivers then collided, which damaged Piastri’s front wing, forcing him to pit for a new one.
The stewards found Lewis to be at fault for the incident and handed him a five-second penalty and two penalty points on his superlicence.
After the race, Lewis immediately admitted the crash was completely his fault.
“It was a bit unfortunate and I misjudged the gap I had with Piastri right at the end,” the Briton said.

Piastri also confirmed Lewis apologized to him.
“The incident with Lewis, he probably just creeped over a bit more than he thought,” he told Sky Sports F1.
“The stewards gave out their verdict and he has apologized so there is nothing more I can ask for or do at that point,” Piastri concluded.
