But the momentum of this dramatic title race has once again swung back the way of Hamilton going into the month-long season break - even though Ferrari have boasted the quicker package in recent races. "Our auto has a big potential, so I feel relaxed, going on holiday, for the races to come". "I was next to him on the inside and I was locking up, but he still turned in and then we touched".
"But the end result, doesn't really feel like a happy finish".
"For him [Bottas] there wasn't anywhere to go, I was ahead".
Hamilton won the race, while Bottas slipped from second to fifth late on after clipping the back of Vettel's auto and then bumping sides with the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo. Bottas was understandably upset in the heat of the moment but both driver and team boss quickly moved to play down the comment.
"You see the teamwork me and Valtteri had, it worked pretty well", he said, pointing to the start and opening lap when they fended off a concerted Ferrari attack.
Bottas, who did damage to the front wing of his Silver Arrows when he made contact with Vettel, cut a frustrated figure as team-mate Hamilton celebrated a victory that will take him into the mid-season break with a 24-point lead over Vettel.

For all that Lewis Hamilton has shown some intense emotions of late, from his euphoria at winning in Germany to his criticisms of those who commentated on the race, I received a rather different impression last Saturday night. "We've got to try and catch them - but we've got to continue to keep rising with all the other elements, which allows us to beat Ferrari when they don't bring their A-game". Red Bull team principal Christian Horner blamed the Renault engine as being substandard.
"With Seb, he had a good run into turn two, we had a bit of a battle into turn one".
"I really could only have dreamed that we would be in the position that we are in right now", he told reporters. "Fair enough, I think a racing incident", he added. Honestly I'm really happy because we knew that with Toro Rosso, two, three times in the year you have big opportunities like this where the vehicle works better than expected, things come your way.
"We know that consistency is the key, scoring points, and I did myself no favours last week", said Vettel.
