Hamilton's car damaged after Maldonado incident

Qualifying in Belgium afforded thrills and spills and some controversy, as Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado made contact on the approach to Eau Rouge after Q2 had finished.

Previously, at the end of his final lap in the second segment of qualifying, Hamilton had briskly overtaken Maldonado on the very last turn. They then clashed again, when the session was over.
