Sebastian Vettel furious after penalty hands Hamilton F1 win in Canada – video
Sebastian Vettel said he is falling out of love with Formula One after a controversial penalty denied him victory in Canada and promoted Lewis Hamilton to first place.
With 22 laps to go, Vettel went across the grass and almost hit Hamilton as he returned to the track on the inside and his rival attempted to go around him. Vettel emerged in front and stewards then gave him a five-second penalty for an unsafe return and forcing another car off the track.
Vettel held his lead to the end but was only 1.3 seconds in front of Hamilton who thus took the win for Mercedes – the British star’s fifth win from seven rounds. After the race, Vettel theatrically grabbed the big No 1 sign parked in front of Hamilton’s car and moved it to where his Ferrari should have been in the empty No 2 slot. Ferrari are appealing against the time penalty.
