- Briton crashed out of Belgian GP after hitting Fernando Alonso
- Hamilton unhappy after Alonso calls him ‘an idiot’ on team radio
Lewis Hamilton said he was “grateful to still be alive” but admitted he was at fault after crashing out of the Belgium Grand Prix having hit Fernando Alonso on the opening lap.
The crash launched Hamilton’s car into the air and the damage forced the British driver to retire from the race. Alonso called him “an idiot” for the incident — to which the seven-time champion responded by saying he would refuse to talk to the Spaniard.
