Gutierrez calls Hamilton disrespectful

Haas F1 ace Esteban Gutierrez has called Lewis Hamilton disrespectful following receiving an abusive hand gesture from the triple time world champion during the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The final stint of the race, race leader Hamilton got stuck behind Gutierrez for final some curves as he came up to lap the Haas driver, its allowing Nico Rosberg in second place to close the gap.

Finally Hamilton overtook Gutierrez at the top of the main straight he delivered what appeared to be a middle-finger salute to underline his frustration at being held up.

“Oh yeah?” Gutierrez said when he was told. “Not a very respectful move from him I have to say. I have spoken to him in the past, I think he is respectful, he is the world champion, but he shouldn’t do these kinds of things he should respect all of the competitors, you never know, maybe in the future I will be fighting a championship with him so he has to respect that.”

When Hamilton was asked to clarify whether it was the middle finger, he said: “I may have accidentally wanted to do that! I didn’t, it was just like [motions a frustrated wave].”

Gutierrez later received a five-second time penalty for ignoring blue flags, to which he responded:

“I didn’t ignore them! I simply had two aeroplanes coming from behind, coming very quickly!

“Of course, I was focused on my race, they came very quickly and I was trying to find the safest place to let them by.

“I’ve no comment on the penalty. As I say, I was aware of the blue flags, but I was really looking for the safest place to let them by.”

Gutierrez later tweeted his disappointment, adding: “Being a world champion doesn’t give you the right to be disrespectful to your competitors, my friend.”
