Button made a mistake – Hamilton



June.12 – McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton thinks that his team-mate Jenson Button could have given him more space just before the pair made contact along the pit-straight through this Canadian GP, with the British speedy making an early exit as a result. Just a few laps before the accident, Hamilton tapped Red Bull’s Mark Webber into a spin at the first corner, demoting both drivers further down the order.
“It was tricky conditions, I was doing the best I could to keep the car on-track, I think I had pretty good pace,” Hamilton told BBC Sport.
“Whilst I fell back behind Jenson he made a mistake into the last corner, so I got the run on him. I was on the outside I guess, I haven’t seen the footage but it felt like I was half way up the outside of him and he kept moving across, whether or not he saw me and I was in the wall.”
The McLaren Managing Director Jonathan Neale thinks blame cannot be apportioned to either driver, adding: “I think there is such a thing as an accident, there doesn’t always have to be somebody at fault. We’re not the first team to have drivers come together and I don’t suppose we’ll be the last team either. Obviously it’s not good for us, or for either driver but we’ve looked at it and we just think it’s a racing incident. Lewis clearly had pace, Jenson was holding his line and they came into contact, the rest is unfortunately history.”
