F1: LEWIS HAMILTON BRANDS SEBASTIAN VETTEL 'A DISGRACE' IN BAKU


Lewis Hamilton has lashed out at Sebastian Vettel calling him "a disgrace" after Vettel reacted unsportsmanlike during the Azerbaijan Grand Prix...

Vettel hit Hamilton at the back then sideways during one of the three restarts...



"He was obviously sleeping and driving alongside and deliberately driving into a driver and coming away scot-free is a disgrace. He disgraced himself. " said Hamilton. 

Vettel complained that Hamilton "brake-tested" him...

FIA said Hamilton did not 'brake-test' Vettel after telemetry data was analysed... 



Vettel was given a 10 second stop and go penalty for the incident were by his rival thought it was a 'slap ob the wrist'... 

3 point penalty was also added to Vettel for his conduct... He now has 9 penalty points and when he reaches 12 he will be banned...

The Baku race was full of incidents wherby Red Bull took advantage of a faulty Mercedes-Benz headrest and won the race...Something Mercedes would have to ponder about because losing points with a well performing car in front of the pack because of a head restrain is a bit questionable... 

Daniel Ricciardo was delighted to win the chaotic race that was arguably the best so far this season... 

The race saw Williams Lance Stroll pick up a podium finish for the 1st time on his debut season... 



The 18 year old Stroll was on his way to clinch 2nd place when Bottas passed him just before the finish line... 

The Canadian become the 1st driver on the podium since Jacques Villeneuve... 

The F1 just got interesting and it's good for tge fans... Let's wait and see the forthcoming races with eagerness.
