Hulkenberg costs McLaren second in constructors’ championship

Lewis Hamilton retirement from the season final race at Brazilian Grand Prix following the crash with Nico Hulkenberg, the incident washed out McLaren’s second place in constructors’ championship.

Hamilton was disappointed, but McLaren said following the race that Hulkenberg had apologized for their clash.

“I don’t remember too much about the accident with Nico, but he came to see me after the race, which was nice.” Hamilton said after the race.

Hulkenberg, Sauber’s 2013 driver believes that fifth place was still a huge exit current for Force India.

“I’m not too disappointed, It was quite unfortunately obviously,” Fifth place is still a good result. Hulkenberg said.

“We were challenging and we had Timo [Glock] and Heikki [Kovalainen] into Turn 1 as well.

“I think Lewis ran out of space with Heikki and was a bit irritated there. I obviously decided to make a move into Turn 1 and was on the damp side of the track and lost the rear a little bit. Unfortunately we collided.

“Looking at the incident I think it’s just one of those things in racing. I think he could’ve turned away a bit. But the way it worked wasn’t good for either of us.”
