Lewis Hamilton said “Ultimately what happened was disrespectful. There are kids watching us on TV. You think a multi-time world champion would behave better than that. I really hope that kids don’t see that and think that is the right way. That is not how you drive.”
On Hamilton quotes Vettel said, “We had a little contact, but I drove alongside him, mostly to raise my hand. I did not give him the finger. I just wanted to tell him, because I can’t literally talk to him, that what he did was not right.
“I don’t agree with the penalty I got. If you penalize me, then you should penalize both of us because that was not the way to do it.”
As the incident, it seems it was Vettel’s mistake. He has done all that knowingly.
Let us see what penalty Vettel will face in upcoming race? Whether he will be banned from F1 Austrian GP 2017 or not?
