Button urges F1 to 'move on' from Baku
29 June 2017 – Jenson Button has urged Formula 1 to "move on" from the Sebastian Vettel/Lewis Hamilton controversy at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, despite next week's investigation.
On Wednesday, the FIA announced that it will revisit the clash between title rivals Vettel and Hamilton, and its causes, to determine whether further action is required.
Ferrari driver Vettel responded to a suspected brake test from Hamilton under the Safety Car by gesticulating, moving alongside the Mercedes and making side-on-side contact.
Hamilton was later cleared by the stewards, after they went through his telemetry, coming to the conclusion that he drove consistently at all restarts and behaved "correctly".
Analysis: Should stewards have parked Vettel?
Vettel was given a 10-second stop/go penalty, but Monday's hearing will "further examine" the incident, before a call is made over whether or not to apply further punishment.
In a tweet, Button described Vettel's reaction as "silly", though feels that he has already been sufficiently punished, and is keen for F1 to draw a line under the matter.
In a response to commentator Martin Brundle, on the subject of the FIA potentially overruling its own stewarding system, Button referenced green-flag incidents.
An FIA statement regarding the outcome of Monday's hearing will be made available ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix, which will take place next weekend.
