Sebastian Vettel took a wonderful victory at the Silverstone circuit while his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen was third in the British Grand prix. They both commented on Lewis Hamilton’s comments that the Scuderia applied “interesting tactics”, concerning the incident between him and Raikkonen at the beginning of the race.

“Well, things can happen but I think it’s quite silly to think that anything that happened was deliberate, at least, I would struggle to be that precise, you know, to take somebody out. In France, I lost my wing so I screwed my race. I think it’s easy to obviously attack and have a great move and also easy to have an incident. I don’t think… I mean, I only saw it briefly on the monitor, I don’t think there was any intention and I find it a bit unnecessary to even go there”, Vettel said.

“Every race is a team race, but it was even more important for us to win here because the last few years had been very difficult to us. This year we have proved to be strong every time on every track so far. The most important thing is that the car is strong and fast. The new updates that we brought have worked very well through the whole weekend. In qualifying, we were just a little bit slower, but during the race. it was just great.”

“During the first stint I probably pushed too much on the Soft tires, but during the second one, I had everything under control. The Safety Car made everything more exciting, but even more tricky. However, the strategy with the tires was great and in the end, we got a fantastic win as a team. I really enjoyed this race and I am happy for me and for the team. Also, the start was very important for us and it was great. Now it’s important to keep working. I say thanks to the whole team for this win!”
