Hamilton tells Vettel and Rosberg to 'pipe down'

NEWS STORY
29/03/2014

Pole man Lewis Hamilton has to admonish Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg as they bicker during press conference.

Surprised at missing pole by just 0.055s, Vettel headed into the post qualifying press conference feeling he could have done better. Consequently, when asked why he had been unable to complete a final lap which might have topped Hamilton's the German immediately pointed the finger at the Englishman's teammate.

"Nico couldn't see much in his mirrors, I guess," he said. "Obviously I was on a flying lap and Nico was preparing his hot lap, if that's correct, and not much happened.

"Obviously I was pissed off at the time because... sorry, I was angry at that time, at that moment because I turned into turn 12 not knowing where to turn in because I couldn't see anything," he continued. "The lap was lost but equally I think there was another car in front of Nico."

"I don't think that was me," argued Rosberg.

"No, so then it was Lewis. I think it was a Mercedes," insisted Vettel.

"I don't think it was me," replied an equally insistent Rosberg. "I never had anybody behind me."

"Anyways… I ran into traffic, not really, there were two seconds or three seconds gap but enough so that the next corner was completely blind," said the world champion. "That's it."

But that wasn't it, for as attention shifted to Hamilton, whose pole winning lap meant he equalled the record (for a Briton) currently held by Jim Clark, Vettel and Rosberg continued bickering.

"Hey guys, I can't even hear myself talk," snapped Hamilton.

"We're still figuring out who it was..." replied the world champion with a grin.
