Hamilton and Verstappen collided as they dueled for position heading into Turn Nine, Copse Corner, resulting in the Dutchman hitting the wall hard, bringing out the red flag, with the 23-year-old taken to hospital for observation.

Bar some damage to his car, Hamilton was able to continue in the race, and despite being handed a ten-second time penalty for causing a collision, went on to secure victory at Silverstone, in front of home fans.

Yet during the red flag period as the incident was initially under investigation, Horner was heard fuming at the FIA race director Michael Masi that he hoped they were going to deal with it “appropriately,” firmly putting the blame on Hamilton.

Moments later, Wolff made his case for Hamilton’s innocence to the FIA, asking if Masi had received his email, which had outlined “the diagrams” of where the tyres should be on track.

Speaking to the media, Horner was then informed of Masi’s instructions to Wolff, and that he had been told to speak to the stewards if he had an issue.

But Horner dismissed the excuse outright.

“I don’t think stewards should be interfered with,” Horner reiterated.
