Lewis Hamilton and George Russell clashed several times during the Japanese Grand Prix, and at one point even went off the track and Spoon Curve.
Although George complained about this during the race, afterwards he said it was “hard, fair racing”.
Lewis also said he didn’t have a problem with the battle.
“Yeah, it was definitely aggressive, but I think it was good racing,” the Briton said.

“Honestly I shouldn’t really have been in that position but as I said I think I picked up a little something on the right front and it just kept slipping the front end right on the last corner and Turn 9, and then it wouldn’t turn through the hairpin.
“All weekend I’ve been good through the hairpin and then just I was turning and nothing was happening. So I definitely struggled on track with the balance.
“But yeah it was a good, good battle, a little bit aggressive, but as well he needed to get positions,” Hamilton concluded.
