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.
