The FIA Explains Why Hamilton Wasn’t Fined For The F1 Collision With Alonso

The FIA Explains Why Hamilton Wasn’t Fined For The F1 Collision With Alonso

August 29, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


During the opening lap of the Spa-Franco champs race, Alonso and his Mercedes adversary collided at Les Combes as they competed for second place.

Up the Kemmel Straight, Hamilton had an advantage over Alonso and drove to the outside in an effort to slingshot past him.

Alonso had nowhere to go as Hamilton closed the door on him on the entry to the first right-hander at Les Combes, and the two collided as the Mercedes was flung into the air.

Alonso was allowed to continue, but Hamilton was instructed to stop later on the lap due to damage to his car and what seemed to be a water leak.

Alonso expressed his displeasure with Hamilton’s driving on the team radio, criticizing his lack of attention to detail when competing against other cars.

Alonso said, “What a moron shutting the door from the outside. We were off to a great start, but this person can only drive and put the car in first.

Although the FIA stewards looked into the event, they came to the conclusion that neither driver was at fault since it was just a usual type of mishap that may occur on the first lap as vehicles battle for position.

The FIA stated in a statement: “The Stewards evaluated the video footage and found that Alonso was inside at turn 5.

“Alonso’s front wheels were in front of Hamilton’s at the turn entry. With both of his right side tyres firmly on the curb and even partially inside the curb, Alonso shifted his vehicle into the inside lane.

“Alonso never gave the impression of losing control or understeering. Alonso remained next to Hamilton as he headed into the corner’s apex, which is when the crash happened.

The Stewards determined that there was a first-lap incident with significant movement in relation to other vehicles in the opening turns and decided not to take further punishment.

F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

The decision leaves a two-weekend gap between the finish of the European season on September 11 in Monza and the start of the six-race flyaway series in Singapore on October 2.

Shortly after the Russian invasion on Ukraine began, the Sochi event was cancelled, along with the event’s ongoing contract.

F1 quickly began exploring for alternate locations in order to retain the overall number of races this year at 23.

Qatar was an early candidate. Last year, the country staged a race at the Doha circuit, and it will do so again in 2023. Due to its commitment to the FIFA World Cup, it had intended to skip this year.

The September date was deemed to be early enough to avoid clashing with football tournament preparations, but there were worries about the high heat and its possible influence on the turnout.

The notion of a second race in Singapore a week before the conventional grand prix and perhaps at a different time of day arose throughout the Melbourne weekend.

However, logistical concerns prevented F1 from transferring directly from a European site to Singapore.

The money was crucial to any arrangement. F1 is in a totally different scenario than it was two years ago, when certain venues offered low-cost or even no-cost solutions to keep the number of races up.

A new race would have had to make financial sense for both the teams and F1 itself, given global inflation and substantial increases in freight costs.

The confirmation will be welcomed by the teams, who are facing the difficulty of staying under budget while constructing fresh new vehicles in the midst of an already tight timetable.
