Vettel plays down "human" Hamilton reaction to British GP loss

Written by  Jul 20, 2018

Sebastian Vettel is well beyond being bothered about Lewis Hamilton's initial claims of "interesting tactics" by Ferrari at the British Grand Prix almost two weeks ago.

A clearly unhappy Mercedes driver stormed out of parc ferme feeling hugely aggrieved after being hit by Kimi Raikkonen on the opening lap, before later hinting there was perhaps more to it than a racing incident.

The next day, cooler heads prevailed and Hamilton took back his comments and accepted the Finn's apology but that didn't stop Sky Sports from bringing it up on Thursday at Hockenheim.

“I think it’s fine,” he said. “Obviously it was silly to say it but we are racing, we’ve all been there and it’s never great if you are hit without doing anything wrong.

“It’s also fine to express your opinion even if it’s not right or reasonable. It’s human, so I think it’s fine.”

Vettel also welcomed the news of his main championship rival's new contract at Mercedes, meaning both drivers are now signed to their respective teams until the end of 2020.

“Congrats!” he said. “I don’t know why it took so long but I think it was pretty clear.

“You want to fight the best and Lewis has been one of the best since he entered Formula 1. It’s good to be there.”
