Hamilton clash leaves Vettel screaming: “What the f*** is going on?”

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel was suspected of purposely driving into his title rival Lewis Hamilton. Finally the German took fourth with three-time world champion left fuming after an earlier collision. Hamilton starts from pole, but unlucky Brit loses lead due to loose the head-rest.

Stewards given 10-second stop-and-go penalty – after believed Vettel’s driving to be dangerous – the German still managed to extend his title lead to 14 points following Hamilton was forced to adapt an unscheduled pit stop for headrest change.

“He brake tested me,” yelled Vettel over the team radio. “What the f*** is going on?”

After the race Hamilton speaking to Sky F1’s Rachel.

“I’m good, just looking forward to getting home. It’s been a good weekend and we still got some points which is key. Onwards and upwards. Hamilton said

“I don’t really care about [the incident with Seb]. It’s done and dusted and we move on.

“I think it’s just not driver conduct. It’s dangerous driving and to get a 10-second penalty for that… I don’t need to say anything else.”

“That was a petulant move and something a four-time world champion should be able to control,” says Damon Hill on Vettel driving into the side of Hamilton.

“Nothing happened, did it?,” Vettel told SkyF1, who is in a rather more chatty mood than Hamilton but still not looking happy.

“He brake checked me as well, so what do you expert? I ‘m sure he didn’t do it on purpose but for sure it was not the right move. If I’m struggling, people at the back struggling even more, so I don’t think it was necessary.

“I got damage, he risked damage. He’s done something similar in China at the restart a couple of years ago so it’s not the way to do it, I think.

“After the incident, we were side by side, I raised my hand and showed him that I wasn’t happy with that.”
