Max Verstappen responds to Lewis Hamilton's 'dickhead' comment

Max Verstappen responds to Lewis Hamilton's 'dickhead' comment

However Vettel - who won the race - said this was a normal reaction from Hamilton, as he reacted angrily to a question in the post-race press conference - and swore himself.

But to the surprise of the journalist, Vettel jumped to Hamilton's rescue asking if he could answer the question.

"I just hope that we're moving forwards", he said. We've all been in that situation, we fight someone, we go sometimes wheel-to-wheel, it's close and you have a lot of adrenaline going. So, don't take it personal, but I think we should cut it right there'. I mean if I hit you in your face, you're not going to say "oh, Sebastian, that wasn't nice".

"From the start I was enjoying the feel of the auto and finding the gaps and it was shaping up to be an exciting race".

You can see the full clip below as Vettel defends his title rival.

"But he continued to come across and that didn't leave me any room and we ended up touching..." That would have really been hard. Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff defended his driver though by reasoning out that it was only a racing incident.

"I'm going to get a positive mental thinking and hopefully the set-up works well in the race".

"We're going to sit down and discuss the last two races", he said. There needs to be a certain respect between drivers.

"It didn't feel that respectful. And obviously he's tending to make quite a few mistakes recently, so it was just unnecessary for him to do that".

Hamilton made contact with Max Verstappen as he fought his way back into fourth in the early stages and his run to the podium was eased when the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen was forced to retire. "Lewis was trying to go around the outside but at one point I was ahead". "Of course, you always try to squeeze each other a bit".

"I think it's not fair".

"I feel like you guys are not giving much of a picture", Hamilton blunty put it. "There was no need to push by".

The touch was light, but enough to puncture Verstappen's tyre - which then led to damage as the Red Bull man limped his way back to the pits, ultimately prompting Verstappen's retirement from the race.

The defending champion, who will fulfil sponsorship commitments on Tuesday and Wednesday, was victorious in China past year and will be desperate to get his title charge back on track following two winless rubbers.
