“For him to pretty much get away with driving into another driver, is a disgrace. I think he disgraced himself today,” Hamilton fumed.
Furious Lewis Hamilton branded Sebastien Vettel a “disgrace” and challenged him to settle their argument “out of the car” as the Formula One title race turned ugly in Baku.
Hamilton was left raging after Vettel drove into the back of him under the safety car. The German driver then pulled alongside the Mercedes racer and bumped him, accusing Hamilton of braking erratically.
Vettel has later hit with a 10 second stop go penalty. “I didn’t brake check him at all,” Hamilton said. “For him to pretty much get away with driving into another driver, is a disgrace. I think he disgraced himself.
“If he wants to prove he is a man we should do it out of the car, we should face to face.
“Imagine all the young kids watching today, seeing that kind of behaviour from a world champion.
“I think it’s just not driver conduct. It’s dangerous driving and to get a 10-second penalty for that… I don’t need to say anything else.”
