“I don’t think I’ve ever been hit on the head by a car before – and it is quite a big shock for me.
“We are taking risks and it’s only when you experience something like that that you get the real shock of how you look at life and how fragile we all are.
“If you look at the images of the crash, my head is really quite far forward in the cockpit.”
Hamilton later posted an update on social media, saying: “My necks a bit sore as the adrenaline wears off – it was a bit of a hit on the head but I’m doing okay!”
Verstappen still leads Hamilton by five points from Sunday’s race, which was won by McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo.
