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.

Lewis Hamilton does not like the way things went in Belgium on Sunday afternoon. The Mercedes driver saw the start of the race being postponed time and time again, while according to him it was already clear that the weather conditions would not improve.

Today was a farce, with the only losers being the spectators who paid good money to watch us race “Hamilton stated this on his Instagram page. The seven-time world champion is not afraid to express himself. “Of course, you can’t control the weather, but we do have sophisticated technology that can tell us what’s going on, and it was apparent that the weather wasn’t going to ease up anytime soon.

Hamilton is irritated by the fact that the drivers were forced to drive for 10 minutes behind the safety car on the Spa-Francorchamps track. We were dispatched for one and only one reason. Two laps behind a safety car, with little chance of gaining or losing a position or providing excitement for the fans, isn’t racing.”

The 36-year-old Britishman concluded by adding that the FIA’s decision is inexplicable. “We should have just called it a day, not put the drivers in jeopardy, and most importantly, reimbursed the fans who are the lifeblood of our sport,” Hamilton added.
