Arrivabene told Sky Italia after the race that Allison should be ashamed if he had said that.

"We had a super vehicle, a great strategy and we did it at their home [race]", Vettel responded.

"But it was just a stupid manoeuvre and a stupid manoeuvre that happened a second time in three races - that's why [I had] the emotion".

Hamilton said that his immediate post-race remarks were down to the exhaustion he felt after such a demanding race. The Italian team doubled their lead over Mercedes in the constructors' championship to 20 points.

However anything could happen in each of those matches of course. The big guys were sent home and the working teams stayed.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said: "You probably can't ask for anything more from a qualifying session than to have three cars within a tenth of a second at the front". The accusations were well wide of the mark. It was a great drama - I think a race that I enjoyed a lot and I think the people enjoyed a lot.

Reading a text message sent to him by Vowles after the race, Wolff said: "There were a number of unfair comments against you (Wolff) after Austria".

"We have got another 11 races to go and it already feels like the longest season of my life, but this race encourages me that I still have the fight in my heart".

It was absolutely the right decision - if I had followed them into the pits I would have come out behind them on equal tyres and I would have struggled to get by them and most certainly would not have been second.

The Englishman clearly blamed Raikkonen, who was handed a 10-seconds penalty, for the crash and found it hard to face the Finn or accept an apology. "Interesting tactics I would say but we will do what we can to fight them". The Briton clarified that the event was merely a "racing incident"-sharing Wolff's thoughts".
