Vettel collision with Hamilton sets the tone for 2017 Grand Prix

Vettel collision with Hamilton sets the tone for 2017 Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton called title rival Sebastian Vettel “a disgrace” after the Ferrari driver drove into his car in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku.

The two clashed before one of three restarts in a chaotic race, Vettel hitting the back of Hamilton’s Mercedes and then swerving sideways into him.

Vettel said Hamilton had deliberately slowed – or “brake-tested” – him.

The Briton denied that and said Vettel’s driving was “disgusting” and “not sportsman’s conduct”.

Vettel of Germany was given a 10-second stop-and-go penalty in the race – won by Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo – after being found guilty of dangerous driving but still finished a place ahead of Hamilton in fourth, extending his championship lead to 14 points.

The 29-year-old was also given three penalty points on his licence, taking him up to nine. If a driver receives 12 in a 12-month period, it triggers an automatic race ban.

Hamilton was not penalised. The stewards examined data from his car and found that he had maintained a more or less constant speed, had not lifted off the throttle or braked, and had behaved no differently at that restart at that point on the track than at the other two restarts.
