Lewis Hamilton will not receive a heavier penalty after the crash with Max Verstappen two weeks ago at the Grand Prix of Great Britain.

Hamilton tapped Verstappen's car during an overtaking action on the Silverstone circuit, which flew hard off the track and was unable to continue the race.

Hamilton was penalized with a ten-second time penalty, but that didn't stop him from winning his home race.

Red Bull thought the penalty was far too light and protested.

Team principal Christian Horner said the team had new information that was not yet available at the time the penalty was handed out.

However, the FIA ​​ruled on Thursday that there is no new information.

The rejection of the protest comes as no surprise.

It is rare in Formula 1 for the FIA ​​to reverse a time penalty and replace it with another sanction.
