There are suggestions that Hamilton apparently got hit with a camera right before the start of the race as during the national anthem he didn’t have a cut. Some other fans argue he looked like he was in discomfort after the anthem and was seen holding the side of his head. There are no concrete reasons behind the cut yet but most sources seem to suggest that he got struck by a camera.
