The gloves are off between rivals Hamilton and Vettel

Rita Gibson | 28 June, 2017, 16:01

But most attention will centre on the clash between Hamilton, who started on pole, and Vettel, who crashed into the back of the Brit's Mercedes and subsequently side-swiped him while they were behind the safety vehicle on lap 18.

Vettel said Hamilton had deliberately slowed - or "brake-tested" - him.

Hamilton says it should not be surprising Vettel acted in the way he did, pointing to the Ferrari driver's angry tirades in the latter part of 2016 - which included him telling FIA race director Charlie Whiting to "f-- off" on the radio while protesting Max Verstappen's driving during the Mexican Grand Prix.

"Driving alongside and driving deliberately into a driver and getting away scot-free, pretty much - he still came away with fourth - I think it's a disgrace", he told broadcaster Channel 4.

Ferrari Team Principal Arrivabene says the team will look into what happened in Azerbaijan but will come back fighting in the Austrian Grand Prix in two weeks time. "I think he disgraced himself today, to be honest".

What looked like a race which would cut Vettel's championship lead over Hamilton to just five points had suddenly increased his advantage to 14. Vettel, however, has said he wants to clear the air with Hamilton. Hamilton wants to settle things outside of the auto, and everyone else seems to be freaking out because there was a skirmish. This kind of punishment can affect the outcome of this championship, as we have a tight race between Vettel and Hamilton. I don't think there is much to sort out.

"I think it's going to be a great championship battle throughout the rest of this year". "They are warriors. They are at war at that moment". "The reason I didn't get a penalty is because it is clear that I did not brake-test anyone", he said. 'I respect him a lot for the driver he is, but now is not the right time to talk.

Stroll was able to take advantage of the fallout that affected every other driver around him to move up the order from his eighth-place starting position. Asked if the ramming incident tainted Vettel's reputation, racing legend Lauda said: "Sure".

"You have to be so under control yourself that you don't do that", he said. "At a certain stage, the best ones that compete for world championships can't be friends". "I don't have a problem with him", insisted Vettel.

'Maybe I'm not clever enough, but I'm not complicated.

"Today, our auto was on the pace and that was clear to see". However a red flag soon after enabled the team to fix his vehicle and give him a chance to restart, although he retired towards the end whilst running last, a lap adrift. I want to get my head together, kill it, and win the next 12 races.
