Sebastian Vettel is now doing what he can to put some sawdust on the spill he created during the German Grand Prix, after calling Lewis Hamilton stupid.
The media reported that after the race, Sebastian Vettel called Lewis Hamilton stupid for the Briton´s overtaking manoeuvre on Vettel, even though Hamilton was a lap down at the time. Vettel reportedly said that Hamilton was stupid to overtake the leaders, when he was a lap down, but this did not godown well. Vettel is now trying to smooth things out, by declaring that he did not call Hamilton stupid.
Some times translations are not always as successful as we hope they´d be, and what some one says in German as an insult, can be deemed a mere innocent joke in English. And vice-versa. As I do intend to determine if Vettel said one thing or another, it does seem that this issue could be brought forward by his team, urging him to retract the comment or to clarify it. Vettel is a hard racer and sometimes gets emotional. And sometimes he says something that people don´t like. Did he or did he not? Frankly my dear, I don´t give a damn.
