The FIA explains why Hamilton was not at fault in the accident with Alonso

Fernando Alonso ended up very angry about the action he was involved in with Lewis Hamilton at the start of the 2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix. The Spaniard and Briton touched at Les Combes on the first lap while battling for second position after after the Mercedes driver overtook the Spaniard from Alpine on the Kemmel straight.

The seven-time champion closed the door, so the man from Oviedo was left without a gap and both collided. While Alonso was able to continue, the Englishman’s car suffered irreparable damage that caused an alleged water leak, which led Mercedes to advise him to stop halfway through the circuit.

The Spaniard was unhappy with his rival’s driving, and lashed out at him over the radio: “What an idiot closing the door from the outside. We had a mega start, but this guy only knows how to drive by going out first.”

Although the stewards investigated the incident, they considered that neither of the two drivers was at fault, since they described it as a typical accident of the starts in a Formula 1 race when the different competitors fight for a close position.

“Hamilton’s front wheels were ahead of Alonso’s at the entrance of the corner. Alonso moved his car from outside the line to inside, with both tires on the right side of the curb, even a little inside,” he said. the FIA . “At no time did Alonso seem to lose control or understeer.”

“Hamilton turned into the apex of the corner with Alonso still to one side and the collision occurred,” they continued. “The stewards considered this to be an incident on a very busy first lap with respect to other cars in the first few corners, and therefore took no further action.
