After looking destined to pick up his second victory of the season, Verstappen suffered a rear left tyre failure at over 200 mph and was catapulted into the barrier. While from the resulting restart, Hamilton accidentally turned off his breaks on the downshift into turn one and missed his turn in, demoting him to the back of the pack.
