World championship leader Vettel was slapped with a 10-second stop-go penalty during the race and three penalty points on his race licence after race stewards judged that he had "steered into" Hamilton's Mercedes just seconds after crashing his Ferrari into the back of Hamilton's Mercedes as they prepared to restart the race after a Safety Car.
Crashes were happening all over the place, and apart from Vettel and Hamilton's coming together, the Force India drivers derailed themselves, Hulkenberg went out after hitting the wall, Max Verstappen gave up with engine failure and Fernando Alonso said the race should be red flagged for all the debris.
"Did I think that I would win the race today?" I don't think it was deliberate of him to brake-check me, I don't think he's that kind of guy. The safety car came out thrice and this race even saw the Red flags. "What the fuck is going on?"
If the Ferrari driver gets three more at next the Austrian race he will automatically miss Hamilton's home race at Silverstone.
Midway in the 51 laps of the street circuit, a clearly frustrated Vettel kissed Hamilton's tail while trailing behind the safety car. "I didn't run into the back of him on purpose".
Vettel crossed the line in fourth place with Hamilton in fifth. We can continue to move forwards in the future.

"I just wanted to tell him, because I can't literally talk to him, that what he did was not right", he added. He disgraced himself today.
It seems like the Mercedes driver is not the only one frowning upon Vettel's recent actions. Bottas is right in the thick of things with 111 points after the Azerbaijan GP.
"I think driving dangerously, which in any way can put another driver at risk... luckily we were going slowly, if we were going fast it could have been a lot worse". I don't have a radio to him.
