“Lewis didn’t mean to give me puncture”

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Sebastian Vettel said he doesn’t think Lewis Hamilton meant to give him the puncture that ruined his race.

The pair clashed at the first corner for the second race in a row.

Speaking after finishing seventh in the British Grand Prix Vettel said:

There’s not much to say. I was little bit out of the window on the clutch and I had a bad start, lots of wheel spin.

I tried probably a bit too hard but that’s life. Into turn one I had to let Mark past. Some people said Lewis touched me but I didn’t feel anything.

He probably achieved what he wanted to achieve in Valencia! But I’m sure he didn’t mean to give me a puncture.

After that I had to come back slowly to the pits and then I was on the same set of tyres for the rest of the race.

Fortunately the safety car came out so I had a little bit of entertainment at the end of the race.
