"Often when the auto outside is running out of road, if you look at it I was ahead for quite a period of time, and then I accepted defeat, and I just I backed out, because I knew he was going to try to run me wide, maybe", he said. "Because they've got a auto that should be getting good results".

"They (RedBull) possess a auto which should be finding good effects, however during inexperience, or perhaps older decisions, they are maybe not", Hamilton advised reporters.

"Is that correct? And more importantly, is there an opinion you have on the contact you had with Max in the beginning stages of the race?"

Lewis Hamilton believes that Max Verstappen's lack of experience is costing the Red Bull driver points. But the auto ahead made a decision to dive to the right so I had to bail out and had cars pass me on the left, so I fell back on the opening lap.

Lewis Hamilton's hopes of winning the Bahrain Grand Prix took a major dent after he was hit with a five-place grid penalty.

"I am doing 34.3, is that enough?" a bewildered Hamilton replied, later adding, "Feels like you guys are not giving me much of a picture".

Hamilton's Mercedes and the Red Bull of Verstappen were involved in a collision early on in the race, when the Dutchman was attempting to overtake.

IL severe bleeding outbreak linked to synthetic cannabinoids update
Only two people have been known to have died from smoking synthetic weed, and many others have been sent to the hospital. Health department data shows the majority of cases are in the Chicago area, as well as Peoria and Tazewell counties.

The stewards looked at the tangle but swiftly ruled no action was necessary.

Verstappen's team boss Christian Horner insisted that it was was an incident behind two hard racers, and that's what TV viewers wanted to see.

And let's not forget Pierre Gasly; the Toro Rosso driver (now powered by a Honda engine, don't forget) finished an incredible fourth behind Hamilton.

SAKHIR-Sebastian Vettel leapt to the defence of his rival Lewis Hamilton on Sunday when the Briton faced questions over his post-race criticism of Max Verstappen's driving in the Bahrain Grand Prix.

" I was driving around in kind of no-man's land for some time, however that& 's just some thing we need to work on. And then I'm not sure how it was for Valtteri [Bottas], I think it was not ideal for him either. "He didn't need to keep going, to be at the track". He supposedly said he left room, but he didn't. I moved when I was young so that I understand the way that it is.

Matters were complicated by Mercedes assuming that Vettel would stop a second time before coming to realise that he might not, and also by problems with Hamilton's microphone, which meant that the pitwall could not always hear what he was saying.
