"It's interesting to hear that from Christian because they've got a auto that should be getting good results", Hamilton said.

"Do you think comparing to football, if you have a microphone on a football player's mouth, that everything he says is something nice and is a nice message when the guy tackles him and maybe sometimes he fouls him or not". "He'd just got out of the auto".

Verstappen, who retired with a broken differential, insisted Hamilton was to blame.

"For Lewis, a podium finish after starting P9 is better than our predictions - and his three-car overtake was a real highlight of the race", said Wolff. "Overall, it was good damage limitation after we put ourselves on the back foot with the penalty". "It's not fair. I don't know what Lewis did, but we've all been in that situation".

In the end, Bottas took the second place while Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari emerged as the eventual victor of the race with an official time of 1:32:01.940.

"I was driving around in kind of no-man's land for a while, but that's just something we need to work on".

"I can't afford to lose any more points to Sebastian", conceded Hamilton, who is already 17 points behind the Ferrari driver.

"There needs to be a certain respect between drivers", Hamilton was quoted as saying on Sky Sports F1.

"I don't understand what I've got to do", Hamilton said on lap 43 when told to target a lap time of "low 34s", or 1 minute, 34 seconds. "It didn't feel like a respectful manoeuvre. And obviously he's tending to make quite a few mistakes recently, so it was just unnecessary for him to do that".

"We're going to sit down and discuss it and try to work on the points and improve, and I have no doubt we will".

"I think there was still enough space on the left, but he drove into my left rear, gave me a puncture and also destroyed the "diff".

"Our auto was great so I'm not going to just stay behind him". He was past. I couldn't get by.

Responding to comments from Verstappen's Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, who suggested the incident was one viewers wanted to see, Hamilton said: "It's interesting to hear from Christian".
