Lewis Hamilton accused of crying like a girl by Kimi Raikkonen’s wife

Lewis Hamilton accused of crying like a girl by Kimi Raikkonen’s wife

Two weeks after Vettel was given a five-second time penalty for a first-corner collision with Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas at Paul Ricard, Ferrari team-mate Raikkonen was slapped with a 10-second sanction after spinning Lewis Hamilton around as they battled at Turn Three.

Some saw that as very harsh, especially when Vettel had received half that for making contact with Valtteri Bottas in France.

Emotional Hamilton lashed out and pointed an accusing finger at Ferrari's "interesting tactics" after feeling Raikkonen hit him on goal.

When asked if he was OK with the Raikkonen/Hamilton incident, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff added: "No, I'm not comfortable at all with the incident because it's tiresome being taken out in the first lap".

"Who is incompetent? Kimi?"

After the trophy presentation, Sky Sports pundit Martin Brundle finally caught up with Hamilton, who took a swipe at Raikkonen's driving.

Hamilton started on a high after a dazzling final lap on Saturday brought pole position.

Sebastian Vettel eventually took the win, with Hamilton a magnificent second, and Raikkonen third. "Obviously, in practice I didn't do any long runs with the mediums but from our calculations we should have been okay, but it wasn't".

Hamilton rushed back into the mix for a podium spot with the majority of runners picking a one-stop strategy until Marcus Ericsson lost control of his Sauber at Turn 1, and his fierce shunt into the tyre barrier brought out a lap 33 safety vehicle. "Ferrari have got a little bit fortunate in the last couple of races so I hope that we get a few more positive races".




Vettel won on Hamilton's home turf to move eight points clear of the Briton, who recovered from last to finish second.

"What we need to discuss among all of us is if certain incidents occur and they have a massive outcome in terms of what's happening maybe around the race win and what the consequences would be, that's a different story".

Although that's certainly not the only area that Villeneuve sees inconsistency, as he also sees the Austrian Grand Prix as an example.

However, Hamilton subsequently said he was "dumb" to imply Raikkonen might have deliberately collided with him.

"I was a bit concerned [about my neck injury] going into the race but I was fine".

Raikkonen held his hand up and admitted he had made a mistake.

Hamilton said: "Nobody is better qualified to tell us what the fans want than the fans themselves". So I was nervous I had lost part of my floor or something because the vehicle was moving for unknown reasons, but then it started to get better and better, after some tweaks to the settings.

What was Raikkonen's penalty 10 seconds? "It was not a straightforward race".

Vettel believes Ferrari's victory and improvement at Silverstone, a track where they have been thoroughly dominated by Mercedes in recent years, shows that they have a well-rounded 2018 vehicle.
