Max Verstappen was released from hospital after being given the green light following his crash at the British GP in a collision with Lewis Hamilton.

He was then taken to Coventry Hospital for further assessment before being released on Sunday evening.

“We are happy to confirm that Max was released from the hospital at 10:00 pm this evening after a thorough medical examination without any major injuries,” said a statement from Red Bull.

“Max and the team would like to thank the Trackside Marshalls and the medical staff for their exceptional care both on site at Silverstone and at Coventry Hospital. “

“I don’t think, from my current understanding, that I am in a position to have to apologize for anything. We are in the race.

“I have heard that Max is in the hospital and that really worries me. None of us all want to get hurt, that’s never my intention. So I really hope he’s okay and I’ll hit him after that just to make sure he’s okay.

“We live to fight another day. There will be a lot of tough races ahead and we have to learn to find a good balance. I do not agree with the commissioners, but I take my chin penalty and I continue with my work.

“I’m not going to complain about it. Everyone is going to have a different opinion and I don’t particularly care what people think, I just do what I do and I’m really thankful for today. “

In a subsequent post on his social media, Hamilton said, “Today is a reminder of the dangers of the sport. I send my best wishes to Max who is an incredible competitor. I am happy to hear that he is doing well.

“I will always run hard but always fairly. My team has shown courage and perseverance. It’s a dream to win in front of my audience. “

Hamilton reduced Verstappen’s world championship lead from 33 to eight points after 10 rounds of the scheduled 23-race campaign, with the Hungarian GP – a place where the Englishman has won a record eight times – starting July 30.
