Lewis Hamilton opens up on Imola mistake and sends message to winner Max Verstappen

And when asked if Hamilton at that time was thinking about the fact he could still lead the championship, if he came away with a second place and fastest lap, he said it didn’t even cross his mind.

He replied: “I wasn’t thinking about it, I was just trying to get over the gutting kind of feeling it is when you make a mistake and just move on from it, and learn from it real quick.

“You don’t have time to dwell on it, so that’s what I did. Get back into racing spirit. I didn’t know if we’d be able to overtake, because again, offline was going to be wet, but still had some good fun battles with all the guys.

Verstappen beat Hamilton to the win, but admitted it wasn’t an easy feat.
