  • Hamilton feared he could have killed someone due to the lack of space he had

There are 19 more races until the end of the season.

Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton are bitter rivals on the track, but there was nothing of the sort between the pair following Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.

Last season, the battle for the title between Vettel and Hamilton was often a heated affair, which peaked during the Azerbaijan Grand Prix when Vettel deliberately rammed Hamilton's Mercedes when the race was neutralised by a Safety Car period.

Hamilton though felt Verstappen had been too forceful with the move.

Hamilton was only fifth and fourth respectively in yesterday's practice sessions with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen setting the pace ahead of team-mate Vettel. the Italian team seemed to have the advantage over Mercedes in the hotter temperatures.

Verstappen had started 15th in his Red Bull, after crashing in Saturday's qualifying, and dived down the inside of Hamilton into the first corner at the start of lap two in an attempt to seize 10th.

However, the reigning world champion almost had his race thrown in the bin when Max Verstappen - charging from 15th through the field - made contact with Hamilton on the second lap, landing the Dutchman with a puncture that ultimately led to his retirement.

Hamilton has not won any of the past five races. The Mercedes team struggled in the hot temperatures at the desert circuit, but should be competitive again when they travel to the Far East, where the weather and track will suit the Silver Arrows auto.

World champion Lewis Hamilton has questioned Max Verstappen's maturity. "I am 17 points down already after just two races".

The world champion insisted that he had conceded the corner and left the Dutchman room to get safely past.

The touch was light, but enough to puncture Verstappen's tyre - which then led to damage as the Red Bull man limped his way back to the pits, ultimately prompting Verstappen's retirement from the race.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner cited the coming together as "hard racing", and suggested such incidents draws fans to the sport.

"There needs to be a certain respect between drivers", the Brit said.

"Maybe I need to go and watch the manoeuvre again, but it didn't feel like a respectful manoeuvre". It was a silly maneuver for himself, because he didn't finish the race.
