Verstappen was able to climb from the wreckage but appeared shaken up and winded and he was taken away in an ambulance for a precautionary check-up.

Hamilton was hit with a 10-second penalty for the terrifying lap-one shunt which saw Verstappen’s afternoon end in the barriers and subsequently hospital.

But his stunning win – his eighth on home turf – moved him to within seven points of Verstappen on a remarkable afternoon.

Hamilton jumped out his Mercedes and leapt over a barrier before waving the Union Flag in front of the packed grandstands.

The race at the Northamptonshire circuit was closely watched as an example of whether sporting events can take place safely amid the pandemic. 

It was allowed to go ahead as part of the third phase of the Government’s Events Research Programme (ERP), set up to test Covid Passports. 

In pre-Covid times, the British Grand Prix is normally the best-attended sports event in Britain and underpins a £2billion-a-year industry.
