Lewis Hamilton, having reviewed his coming together with Mark Webber in Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix, remains adamant that the collision was not his fault, with FIA race stewards having deemed the moment a racing incident.
At the Lap 36 restart following retirements for Kamui Kobayashi and Bruno Senna, the then two leaders of the Drivers’ Championship came to blows at Turn 7, with Red Bull pilot Webber’s right-front wheel coming into contact with the left-rear quarter of Hamilton’s McLaren.
“I've seen the replay and I was half a car length ahead of Mark and on the racing line,” Hamilton said on his website.
“It's just very frustrating that in Italy I tapped the car in front and it broke my front suspension and in Singapore the car behind tapped me and punctured my tyre. I've been unlucky both times.
“On Sunday night, I was obviously exceptionally disappointed - it's always difficult to get your head around things when you've just retired from a Grand Prix - and it takes time to come to terms with that.”
Still in contention for a second world title, Hamilton admits that three retirements from four races is no honourable statistic.
“Clearly, it's not been a good run of results, but I don't look at those races and think what might have been or what additional points I might have if I'd finished,” Lewis continued.
“There's no point. You just need to look at the situation facing you and work your hardest to do your best. I'm a racer. I always race my heart out and nothing will ever change that.”
