Lewis Hamilton to hold crisis talks with Mercedes team

Hamilton was fourth fastest in the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the Bahrain GP

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said the clash had been a "racing incident", agreeing with the race stewards' verdict that, after an investigation, no action was required.

"Max should have had a decent race". The Red Bull driver came out with a fresh set of supersoft tires, but then pulled up a lap later to make it a miserable evening for the Austrian team, who had already lost Ricciardo's vehicle to a technical fault. "I don't know what Lewis did, we've all been in that situation".

"We got a bit squeezed but from the middle to the end of the corner I was ahead, I then felt a nudge from behind and could feel the puncture and therefore knew the race was likely over".

Vettel, 30, now leads Hamilton by 17 points with 19 more races to go.

"Maybe I need to go and watch the manoeuvre again, but it didn't feel like a respectful manoeuvre".

Later in the press conference though, the German would take over a question posed by a Dutch reporter asking Hamilton directly about the term he used. "But as youngsters we do not always make the right decisions".

"From the start I was enjoying the feel of the auto and finding the gaps and it was shaping up to be an exciting race".

"My thoughts are already on the World Championship", the Mercedes driver told Sky F1.

Moderator: "I'll just apologise for any colourful language in Sebastian's answer there".

"From Max's position Lewis should have conceded the corner, and from Lewis's position he's saying Max gave him no room to work with".

"If you are just out of the vehicle, you are still full of adrenaline".

"I realised I had to back out, but he continued to come across, and that didn't leave me any room, so we ended up touching. I can't really remember at what stage of the race it was or why we were even in that position, but yeah, I don't really care to be honest".

"I was just really grateful that my auto wasn't broken and I could continue".

In other comments to reporters, Hamilton said: "It was an unnecessary collision".

Will Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari make it three wins in a row or can Mercedes and Red Bull respond in Shanghai?

The Briton, who has spoken glowingly in the past of a 20-year-old he sees as a future champion, vented his feelings with some strong language after finishing third at the floodlit Sakhir circuit.
