Lewis Hamilton held back from blaming Mark Webber for the collision which put him out of the Singapore Grand Prix.
Speaking after the race he said:
He was in my blind spot, I didn’t even know he was still there.
I don’t know I’ll have to look at the video replay. Honestly I don’t even know what happened. I didn’t see anyone alongside me and the next thing I know my tyre’s blown and that’s it.
Having failed to score in three of the last four races, Hamilton has fallen to third in the championship.
Asked if he felt he could still win it he said:
I think its a tough call. There’s still four races to go but I couldn’t have expected a worse two races at this crucial point in the year.
I’ll do my best but hopefully either me or Jenson can do it.
Webber was able to finish the race despite the damage to his front-right wheel, and the stewards decided no penalty was in order.
Speaking in the press conference he compared the collision to Hamilton’s contact with Massa at Monza two weeks ago:
The contact was similar to what he had in Monza with Felipe. It could have easily been my front tyre that was damaged.
