Lewis Hamilton accuses Ferrari of dirty tricks

6th July 2018 Silverstone Circuit Silverstone England British Formula One Grand Prix Friday free practice Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport Mercedes F1 W09

The spell is broken.

Or maybe it was recrimination having been controversially punted to the back of the field just three corners into the 52-lap race by Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen. But if Carlsberg did second places...

After Vettel's collision with Valtteri Bottas in France, Sunday's coming together at Silverstone marked the second time in just three races that a Ferrari vehicle has hit a Mercedes.

Finland's Raikkonen, who was handed a 10-second penalty before finishing third, admitted he had made a mistake, while Vettel said it is "quite silly" to think there was anything deliberate.

Asked if it was because of the first-lap clash, Hamilton said: "Not at all. No".

Bottas managed to close the gap to Vettel to under two seconds before the Safety Car period.

John Isner has won the second set against Kevin Anderson 7-6 (5) to level their Wimbledon semifinal at 1-1. At the end of this day, analyse things that I've done right. "I tried to resist and maintain focus".


The blow was so obviously not a racing incident. Mercedes did not bring him in for fresh rubber, unlike Vettel and Raikkonen. "I'm grateful the auto was in one piece and I'm grateful to get through".

"I think we need to improve our auto until the end of the year, that will be key because then you have something to fight, and if you have something to fight and something to play with, you can make things happen". And get it down he did.

Sky Sports F1 is the only place to watch every Formula 1 Grand Prix, qualifying and practice session live in 2018. "There were 15 or 16 laps until the end with mediums that would last".

Hamilton's arm wrestle is against Vettel, of course.

More frustration followed on Turn Three when Raikkonen locked up and crashed into Hamilton, leaving the reigning World champion to rejoin the contest in 18th position.

"The safety vehicle spiced it up", said Vettel, wearing supporting tapes on his stiff neck. On cue, Marcus Ericsson lost it through Abbey on lap 33.

May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign. He said he was anxious the government's negotiating approach would "lead to further demands for concessions" from Brussels.


This meant that Hamilton and Bottas were pretty much vulnerable to attack.

Hamilton was not convinced. "Don't give up." He still wasn't convinced, once again questioning the value of his tyres. "But I will come back fighting". "I don't think there was an intention and l think it's unnecessary to even go there". Bottas had a lead to defend, Hamilton was running third, Vettel the red meat in the Mercedes sandwich. This time, Romain Grosjean and Carlos Sainz collided. In fifth place finished the race Daniel Riccardo from "Red bull", but his teammate and the victor of the last stage in Austria, Max Verstappen to the finish line is not reached.

Hamilton holds second position in the championship, eight points behind Vettel. In F1 folklore as written by former McLaren leader Ron Dennis, second was always first of the losers.

No wonder, then, that Vettel was so elated on Sunday afternoon at a circuit that had seen Hamilton win for the previous four years and Mercedes for the last five.

"Our team did an awesome job this weekend, we have so much support and so much pressure for us all", he said. "Sometimes we say dumb shit and we learn from it".

'I Am One Of The Best Defenders In The World!'
In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game". "We will never forget this". It's unbelievable how many talents we have in sport, basketball, handball, water polo, tennis, for sure.
