F1 Kimi Raikkonen's wife slams Lewis Hamilton over British Grand Prix

F1 Kimi Raikkonen's wife slams Lewis Hamilton over British Grand Prix

"The British Grand Prix is one of the four races that featured in the first year of the world championship back in 1950, and we want it to stay there for the long term, as this is one of the true homes of motorsport".

Hamilton's team mate Valtteri Bottas led and might have won but for a second safety auto, after Renault's Carlos Sainz and Haas's Romain Grosjean collided, that kept the front four nose to tail and only fractions apart.

A seething Hamilton labelled the shunt from the Finn as "interesting tactics" in a post-race jibe at Mercedes' rivals but, in a now deleted Instagram story post, Raikkonen's wife made her feelings clear on the issue.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said.

"Who is incompetent? Kimi?" "I had to go over the limit to get that time out of the vehicle, which is unsafe", Hamilton said, still shaking a little, adding it was his "most pressurised" lap ever.

Hamilton, from his record 76th pole, appeared bogged down as he responded and was instantly in a scrap for third with Raikkonen, who collided with the Briton under braking into Turn Three.

Then Vettel's Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen bumped into the British driver at Turn 3, sending the Mercedes off the track and leaving him last. "I will not give up, believe me, I will not give up", he said later. When the guys in front of me pitted under the Safety Car, it was an opportunity for me to get up into third.

"The accident was unfair basically, because it's the second time a Ferrari hits us in the first corner, and it's not amusing".

Vettel had already assumed the lead of the race, after jumping Hamilton at the start, and went on to build a commanding gap over Bottas in the first stint.

Vettel snatched the advantage from Lewis Hamilton at the start of the race and kept a buffer over Bottas until the Safety Car was deployed following a crash for Marcus Ericsson.

"But, I mean. I want to give them a message - it's been a handsome battle, a battle that I think the audience appreciated".

"We also saw that in Austria because even there, Kimi is not driving for Sebastian. He spun, my bad", said the 2007 world champion.

"I was a bit concerned [about my neck injury] going into the race but I was fine".

Hamilton's £40million-a-season contract extension, which will rubber-stamp the driver's status as Britain's best-paid sportsman, is due to be announced. Hamilton, forced in to a spin, continued last on track, while Raikkonen was later deemed responsible by the stewards and given a ten-second penalty. "It was not a straightforward race".

Wolff's comments had angered Ferrari principal Maurizio Arrivabene, particularly as he had referenced former Ferrari technical director James Allison, who is now working for Mercedes.

Lewis said: "That lap took everything out of me, it was the toughest lap I've ever had to do in a qualifying session".
