Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel says that Lewis Hamilton’s unlapping move was stupid and he should high opinion that and use common sense.
After the second pit-stop front runner Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel battle for German GP victory.
Hamilton come-back on track after his third pit-stop among the Vettel and Button. Vettel was just 0.7s behind the Ferrari driver, following few laps Hamilton overtook Vettel cost the home guy’s valuable time.
“That was not nice of Lewis. I don’t see why he was racing us,” said Vettel. If he wants to go fast he should drop back and find a gap. It was stupid as he was a lap down.
“If you want to go quick and you have no chance to win the race you should respect that and use common sense. I didn’t expect him to attack because I didn’t see the point, and then I was surprised when he was side by side.”
“I think that lost us the place to Button because shortly after that we pitted.”
And also Fernando Alonso was not discontented as he saw it as a buffer between himself and Vettel.
“I knew that if Lewis was close enough with the DRS and trying to overtake, I had no problem to leave the space,” said Alonso. “I knew he was not in the race. We didn’t want to risk anything.
“For me it was a good position to have Hamilton between me and Sebastian. Having Hamilton there it meant Sebastian was 2.5s behind approaching the pit stop, so I tried to keep Lewis there.”
