Hamilton vows to move on after Raikkonen apology

Hamilton vows to move on after Raikkonen apology

Hamilton was 29 seconds behind leader Vettel and 11 behind Raikkonen, but he was turning in the quickest laps of the race, and when Daniel Ricciardo stopped for a second time, he was up to fifth. "Go be great today and be you and give zero fcks to what anybody thinks".

"But it was just a stupid manoeuvre and a stupid manoeuvre that happened a second time in three races - that's why [I had] the emotion".

Aside from the controversial remark, Sebastian Vettel opened up his lead in the drivers' standings to eight points with his first victory at Silverstone since 2009.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said after the race that he was "not comfortable at all with the incident because it's tiresome being taken out in the first lap".

Sebastian Vettel has extended his championship lead, pulling off an attack on Valtteri Bottas in the concluding laps to win the 2018 British GP.

"I'm very disappointed, leading the race and then dropping to fourth in the last few laps feels pretty bad". "I will not give up, believe me, I will not give up".

Hamilton said he had accepted the Finn's apology for driving into him in Sunday's British Grand Prix and learned from his own "dumb" reaction to the incident.

Hamilton was seething was the race at Silverstone and suggested that Ferrari were implementing some "interesting tactics" during a race.




But despite finding himself at the back of the field Hamilton roared back into contention, helped by a safety vehicle and some bold tactics from Mercedes, and held on to finish second, although he was clearly still furious after the race. It's always easy to judge these things in hindsight, but at the point we made the call to stay out I was on the same page.

Silverstone is a track where Mercedes have dominated in recent years - Hamilton headed into yesterday's grand prix with four consecutive British wins - but Ferrari held the upper hand over their rivals.

Any race where your team wins will be declared as a great race by a team boss but when the racing is brilliant throughout the field, the action is close, and your driver still reigns supreme, it's that little bit sweeter.

"It is a lot of constructors" points [lost]. You can see that with Red Bull the auto that was in the lead, Max in Austria was managing his pace and had no problems with the tyres, and the other vehicle - the same auto - attacking and trying to make it past Kimi [Raikkonen] had heavy blistering on an identical auto. "I only saw it briefly on the monitor, I don't think there was any intention and I find it a bit unnecessary to even go there".

"Thank you for loving me for being with all my flaws", the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram.

"The mind-set we have tried to create in the team is that failure is allowed", Wolff, 46, added.

However, he was playing catch-up from as early as the third turn of the race, with Kimi Raikkonen locking his front wheel and sliding into Hamilton's rear, causing the Mercedes to spin. "I deserve it, I took the 10 seconds and got fighting".
