Rivals Hamilton, Vettel clash as Ricciardo wins chaotic race

Posted June 27, 2017

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo claimed victory in an action-packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix in which Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel dramatically collided on two occasions.

That brought out yet another safety vehicle and eventually a red flag to stop the race, so that marshals could clean all the debris off of the circuit.

Niki Lauda described Sebastian Vettel as "crazy" for hitting Lewis Hamilton during the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and says deliberately making contact with a auto is the worst thing a driver can do.

Vettel was handed a 10-second stop-and-go penalty by the Azerbaijan GP race stewards after his vehicle hit Hamilton's twice behind the Safety auto - once under braking and then again when Vettel first drew alongside Hamilton to gesticulate at his title rival before swiping into the Mercedes.

Eighteen-year-old Williams rookie Lance Stroll, who hadn't so much as finished in the points until the last race in Canada, took third.

"I think it's just not the correct driver conduct", said Hamilton, picking his words as he spoke to reporters.

When Vettel pitted, Ricciardo strolled into the lead and kept things clean to streak away with what was an unpredictable race that left the Australian beaming as he featured on the podium for Red Bull for the fourth successive race weekend.

Vettel, who escaped punishment at last October's Mexican Grand Prix, despite telling veteran race director Charlie Whiting to "f*** off", now has nine points on his licence after three were added to his tally following his antics on Sunday.

The Ferrari driver and championship leader accused Hamilton of causing the clash and said he should have been penalised too.

"Stroll's first podium so he certainly deserves one.is he old enough to drink?"

"Some people don't like to own up to their own mistakes", Hamilton said.

"I m sure he didn t do it on objective but for sure it was not the right move". Vettel felt Hamilton had slowed down on goal and remonstrated his anger by pulling alongside the Brit and ramming into his auto. All the restarts I slowed down in the same spot.

As Hamilton returned to the pit lane on lap 22 with the race suspended, he left his cockpit before examining the back of his auto for damage following the incident. If everything goes wrong he's still thinking somewhere in his brain: "'It's not my fault.' I think after three days he realizes and hopefully then he will be normal again".

Vettel copped a 10-second stop-go penalty for risky driving. "I like to think that I remain respectful and I'll continue to do so". "Vettel literally came alongside me and hit me", the Briton said. Vettel said Hamilton had deliberately slowed - or "brake-tested" - him.

A loose headrest, that forced him to pit, dropped Hamilton down to fifth.

Vettel was unaware immediately after the race that his penalty was for swerving into Hamilton.

If you look at this chain of events from Sebastian Vettel's perspective, thinking that the driver in front brake tested you (which in his case, resulted in a collision, damaging the Ferrari's front wing) would surely not sit right.
