Tuscan GP: Lewis Hamilton wins chaotic race after crashes, red flags

Lewis Hamilton has edged closer to Michael Schumacher’s records after winning a chaotic Tuscan GP, which included two red flags, two big multi-car crashes and incredible drama throughout as Formula 2020 served up another thriller at Mugello’s debut race.

A week on from an incident-packed and unpredictable afternoon at Monza, the second Italian race didn’t disappoint – but crucially this time Hamilton avoided the bedlam, and saw off Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

Only 12 drivers finished the race and there were three race starts in all, with Max Verstappen and Italian GP winner Pierre Gasly crashing out on the first lap, while a scary pile-up following the post-Safety Car restart led to the first red flag.

A high-speed Lance Stroll shunt caused another unexpected mid-race stoppage, but Hamilton kept his nerve and now leads the championship by 55 points, while he’s just one win short of Schumacher’s all-time record of 91.
