Sebastian Vettel: Lewis Hamilton brake-checked me


(It was) unsafe driving (and) you only get a 10- second penalty for that kind of thing, I think it's.I don't need to say anymore.

Hamilton had been leading at the time, and he eventually finished fifth after making an extra pit stop to deal with a loose headrest, while Vettel recovered from his penalty to finish fourth, with Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo taking advantage of the drama ahead of him to triumph for the fifth time in his career.

A fortnight after breaking his F1 points duck with ninth on home ground in Montreal, Williams's rookie signing kept his composure in a insane Baku race to finish third - only losing second to recovering Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas in a photo-finish over the line.

It seemed a clear case of Vettel losing his temper and causing an accident, but both emerged unhurt as the serious action resumed and Raikkonen picked up debris and a puncture to trigger a third safety vehicle intervention - after only 20 laps.

"Like all the other restarts, I slowed down in the same spot". If I'm struggling, the people at the back are struggling even more, so I don't think it was necessary. That wasn't, for me, an issue.

Bond was also charged for helping dispose of Bella's body - and for taking government benefits for her daughter after her death. She said she saw McCarthy punch her in the abdomen so hard she bounced off the mattress. "Justice for Bella", she said.


After the race, Hamilton said: "It definitely sets a precedent, I think, within F1 and it also does for all the young kids that are watching us drive and conduct ourselves". Yesterday was quite unbelievable already, I had a few races where Saturdays didn't go well and got back into Q3 for first time since China, so today to get the podium is absolutely wonderful.

Vettel, who had claimed no wrongdoing over the team radio for the Hamilton incident, sat in his Ferrari blocks for 10 seconds but emerged ahead of an incandescent Hamilton.

He then added to Channel 4: " I have no doubt he brake-checked me. "I didn't run into the back of him on goal", he told Channel 4. "It wasn't the right thing what he did, it wasn't right that I got a penalty and he didn't".

"It was just a insane race, we knew the podium was a chance after the restart and then we heard about the problems with Lewis and Seb", Ricciardo said.

"It was nice to get one auto home and on the top step, so thanks to the whole team".

But later in the day, they said the family objected to an autopsy being performed on his body, so just an external exam was done. Warmbier died days after his return to the United States, and his funeral was held Thursday in his hometown of Wyoming, Ohio.


"We're all grown-ups, we're men", said Vettel.

In a stop-start race, the safety vehicle came out three times in quick succession before a red flag stopped the grand prix near the midway point because debris littered the track.

Racing resumed, for a third time, on lap 19, but only after the incident in which Vettel hit the rear of Hamilton´s vehicle, under braking as the leader tried to avoid the slow-moving safety auto.

"Driving dangerously which in any way can put another driver at risk. we were going slow, if we'd been going fast it could've been a lot worse".

Vettel just failed to overtake Hamilton while Ricciardo brilliantly overtook Stroll to move into fourth. Probably every Sunday in the Premier League you have referees blowing the whistle and players disagreeing. "It's the same here".

But despite that he was determined to draw the positives from his strong pace over the weekend as he looks forward to the next round in Austria on July 9, a race that Mercedes have won for the past three years.
