Verstappen and Hamilton came together as they battled for position at the first chicane on Lap 26 of last weekend’s Italian GP at Monza.

The Red Bull driver’s car was launched on top of Hamilton’s Mercedes, with his right rear wheel bouncing over the roll hoop before striking the Halo and making contact with the seven-time world champion’s helmet.

A new angle captured by an onboard 360-degree camera has provided revealing new footage of the accident, including the moment Verstappen’s wheel made contact with Hamilton’s head as both cars came to rest in the gravel trap.

Hamilton escaped the collision with a sore neck and praised F1’s cockpit protection device for saving him from serious injury or death.

"Thank God for the halo that ultimately I think saved me and saved my neck," Hamilton said.

“I don't think I've ever been hit on the head by a car before and it's quite a shock for me, because I don't know if you've seen the image but my head really is quite far forward.

“And I've been racing a long, long time, so I'm so, so grateful that I'm still here.”

Hamilton said he would visit a specialist ahead of the Russian Grand Prix later this month to ensure he has avoided any kind of injury.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said Halo had “definitely saved Lewis’s life today”.
