Lewis Hamilton was involved in a big accident with Max Verstappen on Sunday, which ended his race.

Why it matters: In the crash between the two world championship leaders, the Dutchman’s car took off and fell onto Hamilton’s Mercedes. Without the Halo, the crash might have been serious for Hamilton.


  • Hamilton said afterwards that his shoulder would hurt because the tire had hit him there.
  • Toto Wolff, Mercedes team principal, did not even want to imagine an accident without the Halo on the car.

What he had to say:

The Halo definitely saved Lewis’ life today. It would have been a horrible accident that I don’t want to even think about if we wouldn’t have had the Halo.
