• Vettel collided with Valtteri Bottas at F1 French Grand Prix
• ‘We’re not pootling around, we’re putting our lives on the line’
Lewis Hamilton has conceded the crash involving Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas at the start of the French Grand Prix was a racing incident and not indicative of the German being prone to error under pressure.
Hamilton, who won Sunday’s race, criticised the decision to give Vettel only a five-second penalty for causing the collision but admitted such incidents will happen when drivers are pushing to the limit.
