Lewis Hamilton says he doesn’t “have any problems with George”, and adds they will talk about their crash “offline”, and then they’ll “move forward”.

After Lewis Hamilton and George Russell’s unfortunate Qatar Grand Prix collision, Sky Sports F1 asked Lewis if his relationship with George will be difficult to mend.

“The relationship isn’t broken,” the Briton said.

“I don’t have any problems with George, we have a great relationship, we work and we always talk about things.

“This is definitely unfortunate, and I’m sure he was frustrated in the moment, as I was. We’ll talk about it offline, and then we’ll move forward.

“Just apologies to all the team.”

Lewis added he and George talked about ‘working together’ ahead of the race, because Lewis was the only one in the top three who had soft tyres.

“We knew we had different tyres. He was like, ‘let’s just work together’. So we talked about working together.

“Again, it was not our plan to come together. Just really gutting for the team because we all work so hard to be in that position, and I just feel really sad for everybody, for my part in it.”

In the end, Lewis says his attempt to overtake both George and Max Verstappen simply “didn’t work out”.

“I had the soft tyre and everyone around me had the medium tyre and I needed to get by.

“So I tried to go around the outside of Max, but it just didn’t work out,” Hamilton concluded.
