  • Vettel 'accepts he can not win' - Villeneuve

Although Sebastian Vettel blamed Max Verstappen for their Japanese GP crash, he did apologise to Ferrari for going for a gap that didn't work out in his favour.

While Max Verstappen - not for the first time - believes the stewards got it wrong, and that the time penalty meted out to him for the first lap incident with Kimi Raikkonen was not justified - the Red Bull driver suggesting the Finn was responsible - the FIA's race director, Charlie Whiting disagrees.

"He said: 'I understand that I need to perform better from the very beginning of the season in order to really go for the title, and I did not'".

"I braked a little bit too late into the chicane, so I did everything I could to get back onto the track and I think I did it in a safe way, because I was not crazy-fast onto the track", Verstappen said. He was then later hit by Vettel - who spun - at Spoon, and third-placed Verstappen is not happy about both incidents.

"I don't really understand why I get a five-second penalty for that".

"We didn't have damage, but Sebastian was quite quick", added Verstappen.

Watching a replay of Vettel's clash with Verstappen in the cooldown room, Hamilton had a few choice words to say about it.

"I'm not the one who makes the rules, I think otherwise a lot of penalties would have been avoided in Formula 1!". From there onwards, I think we had the right tyre.

"Of course we know that it is hard now", he said.

When it was put to Whiting that in China Verstappen was penalised for such a move on Vettel, the Dutchman having earlier compared the two incidents, he replied: "In China he came charging down the inside into the hairpin, and nearly T-boned Seb, I don't think there was any similarity between the two".

And Mercedes chief Toto Wolff has now revealed what Bottas really thinks of playing second fiddle to the Brit.

"After the race at Sochi, he said: 'There is no need to discuss anything and if I was you, I would do the same'".
