  • Chinese Grand Prix FP3 time-sheet

Hamilton has yet to win a race this season and is nine points behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel in the Formula One driver's standings.

Ferrari's German driver Sebastian Vettel steers his vehicle during the qualifying session for the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. The lucky thing was the auto was still working.

"I'm not really sure", said the English four-times world champion on Sky Sports TV.

The Red Bull driver stormed to an unexpected victory in the Chinese Grand Prix after a safety auto strategy gamble by his Red Bull team paid off handsomely.

With Verstappen apologizing for the incident, Vettel revealed what he said to the 20-year-old after the race but doesn't believe age plays a part in the incidents.

"But I'll take what I got, because at one point it didn't look good at all". I had no intention to resist because it was clear with Daniel [Ricciardo] as well that there was no point doing so - they were just too quick on the fresh tires. He wasn't there, so then you stay in front.

"There was a victory for him on the table, but he gave it away".

"Even after yesterday. I've only got six, it's not a whole lot but the wins seem to come under always some circumstances".

That meant Verstappen, who had the advantage of fresher tyres, dropped from fourth to fifth in a race he could have won and that went instead to Australian team mate Daniel Ricciardo.

"We had a bit of tailwind the whole race and after 41 laps you know that it's tricky to stop the auto there". But, yeah, it happens.

"I don't think I necessarily need to be less aggressive or anything because it has nothing to do with being overly aggressive". But it happens. I appreciate the fact that he came to me straight away. I told him as well that this is the way to solve it: face to face and not - excuse me - through you [media] or blowing something up.

"We didn't think we were going to get out in qualifying and, just over 24 hours later, now to be here, it's... this sport's insane".
