In interviews after the race, Hamilton reported that he was fine and well, but not without some aches and pains. Hamilton tried to reverse the car after things had come to a halt, but he was stuck in the gravel.
Mercedes team boss believes the halo saved Hamilton's life. "Halo definitely saved Lewis’s life today. It would have been a horrible accident, that I don’t even want to think about if we wouldn’t have had the halo," Wolff is quoted by Autosport.
In the paddock, Hamilton has been spotted wearing support tape on his neck.
