Formula One’s governing body will investigate Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix crash between title contenders Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton because it was ‘unusual’, according to race director Michael Masi.

The Australian said that although the collision was relatively low-speed, the FIA’s safety experts would still take a look.

The crash had Verstappen’s Red Bull lift up off a kerb and land on Hamilton’s Mercedes with the inside of a rear wheel hitting the seven-times world champion’s helmet through the protective halo.

Hamilton said it had been a shock to be hit on the head and the titanium ring had saved his life.
