Lewis Hamilton believes the intensity of his Formula One fight with Sebastian Vettel is the greatest he has ever experienced.

The Italian media and others surmised, however, that Raikkonen's uncompromising start may have had something to do with other matters off the track that left him in no mood to make life easy. "I think we all got off to similar starts and then I got a bit of wheelspin, and then went into Turn 1". I think we have the pace. The lead has changed hands five times and their cars have generally been evenly matched but Ferrari have enjoyed a speed advantage since the British Grand Prix and an engine upgrade at the Belgium GP has given them more power than their rivals. "So then I left a gap and Lewis obviously saw a little bit around the outside but then he didn't leave me any space".


Both drivers complained on team radio but an investigation decided that no further action was necessary.

"It was one of the most exciting of victories that I've had, that I can remember", Hamilton told reporters.

"[It] didn't help to be behind the other cars for some laps, and it wasn't really like you can save an bad lot of tyres, you are not in a position to start saving and taking it easy - well you can, but you let him [Hamilton] past", he said.


Once again, Vettel's temperament was called into question after a collision that some pundits felt might have been avoided; he viewed it differently, of course. If you get spun around there's not much you can do from there. The close competition is great for the sport, and it is pushing us to limits that we didn't even know we could go to.
