Hamilton keen to win F1 championship 'the right way'

Michael Schumacher Presents New Fashion Partners

From team mate collisions to title rivals hitting each other, and from shock podiums - at one stage remember Haas's Kevin Magnussen was in line for third - to snatching positions on the line, it was a Grand Prix that had a bit of everything.

Sebastian Vettel nudged Lewis Hamilton under the safety car when the Mercedes didn't accelerate as he'd been expecting. "I think he disgraced himself", said the three-time champion. "He's obviously sleeping and drove in the back of me, that for me wasn't an issue". But we don't do that. He said that he thought the penalty must have been for hitting Hamilton from behind. "That's down to the stewards". If we were going fast it could have been a lot worse.

The incident damaged Hamilton's rear diffuser. For him to pretty much get away with driving into another driver is a disgrace. As retribution, Vettel pulled alongside Hamilton and purposefully swerved to hit him.

But Hamilton was forced into the pits at almost the exact moment his Ferrari rival took his penalty, as the Mercedes had a loose headrest that officials demanded by reattached.

The FIA currently has a strong focus on road safety with their global "Action for Road Safety" campaign, and it is believed that Jean Todt, the president of the FIA, was far from happy with Vettel's antics.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, Todt is "thinking about citing Vettel before the court" and will make a decision later this week.

He added: "I want to do the talking on the track".

Whatever the arguments, F1 finally has what it craves: a saga between fiercely competitive champions that promises to last all season.

"You know the emotions go high in a race car", he said. I am going to keep going.

Ricciardo claimed his first win of the season in Baku but that was only a small part of the story on the city's street circuit.

Vettel also received three penalty points on his super license following Sunday' s race.

Hamilton says his focus will be on winning the remaining races and beating Vettel to the championship.

However, the two he received at last year's British Grand Prix expire after the next race in Austria. If he reaches 10, he faces a possible further sanction. Sebastian Vettel ultimately finished fourth, Lewis Hamilton fifth, while Red Bull's Daniel Riccardo was the one that won the race.

"I almost can't imagine that he did it on purpose in shunting into him", Wolff said.
