'No further action' for Verstappen and Hamilton for late Monaco-collision

The stewards at the Monaco Grand Prix have decided there is no further action required for the incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, as the former made a late lunge to overtake Hamilton in the final laps, causing a small collision.

Hamilton had been struggling to keep Verstappen at bay in the previous laps as his tyres were very worn, but the 21-year-old couldn't find a way through on the very tricky Circuit de Monaco, where overtaking is notoriously hard.

Finally, Verstappen went for it coming out of the tunnel when he had a run on Hamilton, but his lunge came from too deep. Hamilton shut the door and the two cars touched. Hamilton went straight through the chicane and Verstappen around it, but both cars were fine.

The stewards put the incident under investigation, but no further action has been taken. Read the full statement here. Do you agree with the decision?
