Latest Williams F1’s on-board video shows – the rookie Lance Stroll turning left around the corner – keeping normal race line and the duo making contact after Vettel appears on his right.

Following the incident – Vettel blamed Stroll for the collision – but the Malaysian stewards have since deemed that ‘no driver was ‘wholly or predominantly to blame’.

“I went on the outside to pick up a bit of rubber,” Vettel said in the paddock when asked about his view of the incident.

“I think Lance wasn’t looking and wanted to do the same. I was there already and we had contact – it was completely unnecessary. I think he just didn’t look.

“I don’t know [about the gearbox] But I’m sure we will find a way. It’s not my fault if someone decides to pick up rubber and hit another car.

“I think we had a very good car – if we start ahead I think we win the race. Obviously, that didn’t happen today. I think we were the quickest car for the majority of the race but we had to start last.

“Obviously with Kimi retiring before we started, it was a tough race.”

Stroll then added that he does not feel any contact was intentional on either side.

“I don’t know. It was a strange incident,” Stroll said. “I was driving very slowly, back into the pit lane. The race wasn’t going on so it wasn’t intentional for either of us. He came around the outside like the race was still going. It all happened very quickly.
