Lauda: Hamilton goes too far and has only himself to blame

Stephan Heublein

Lewis Hamilton caused a stir in qualifying, when he collided with Pastor Maldonado after the end of Q2. The next incident occurred in the race: Kamui Kobayashi tried to pass Hamilton in a scrap for fourth place.

The McLaren driver countered, and there was some contact resulting in him crashing into the barriers. Hamilton's retirement and deployment of the safety car were the direct consequence.
