Rivals Hamilton, Vettel clash as Ricciardo wins chaotic race

Rivals Hamilton, Vettel clash as Ricciardo wins chaotic race

After the race, Hamilton expressed his frustration as he accused Vettel of risky driving while the German defended himself and claimed the Brit had deliberately slowed down before the pair first made contact following a corner.

The fact Ricciardo won from 10th on the grid, and that Bottas clawed his way back from last following an early incident, summed up a freaky race.

"Did I think I would win today?"

The pair did not converse while in the pit lane when the race was red-flagged for 15 minutes shortly afterwards, from which stop Hamilton rejoined with the headrest unsecured that cost him the lead.

The damage was not big enough for major damage but incenced Vettel, who then drove alongside Hamilton, waved his right arm and drove into the side of the No.44 auto.

Hamilton accused Vettel of "disrespectful" driving after the four-time champion pulled alongside Hamilton and appeared to deliberately swerve into him when they were behind the safety auto approaching the midway point of a stop-start race. "Vettel has literally just turned into me and hit me", the British driver said.

Hamilton's Mercedes appeared to slow down coming out of a corner and Vettel's Ferrari ran in the back of him. "He brake checked me as well, so what do you expect?", the German told Sky. (It was) risky driving (and) you only get a 10-second penalty for that kind of thing, I think it's.I don't need to say anymore. I'm sure he didn't do it on objective but for sure it's not the right move. "He did something similar a couple of years ago in China at a restart".

Ricciardo's Red Bull team mate Max Verstappen, the pacesetter during practice on Friday, was forced to retire for the fourth time in the last six races with engine trouble on lap 11 after he attempted to attack Perez and take third.

The fact Ricciardo won from 10th on the grid, and that Bottas clawed his way back from last following an early incident, summed up one of the most weird races for years.

It was an extraordinary performance from Stroll, the son of a billionaire, who faced heavy criticism earlier in the season. He had to fight back hard to take the win and thoroughly deserved it, particularly with his pass on Felipe Massa, Stroll and Nico H├╝lkenberg into turn one after the restart.

The deal was forged amid the firestorm over investigations into Moscow's possible collusion with members of Trump's campaign. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Rand Paul of Kentucky were the only votes against the bill .

"I'm just lost for words", said Stroll, who earned his first podium finish.

The race started at 5 p.m. local time with track temperatures at 53 degrees Celsius (127 Fahrenheit).

But Bottas had to pit on the second lap for a new front wing, dropping to last.

When Vettel's suggestion that he had been brake tested was put to him, Hamilton insisted that he did not and that the Ferrari driver was at fault.

He could have had second too if not for the speedy Bottas pipping him right on the finish line.
