Bottas blames Leclerc for “completely unnecessary” first-lap contact | 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix

Valtteri Bottas blamed Charles Leclerc for this first-lap collision between the pair which badly compromised his race.
The pair made contact as Leclerc overtook Bottas between turns three and four.
The contact with Leclerc capped a poor start to the race for Bottas, who had already locked a wheel at the first corner unsuccessfully trying to pass Max Verstappen.
Max Verstappen: “We were side-by-side, for sure he didn’t leave any room for me so that compromised my exit out of turn three, I had to lift.”
“It really compromised the race and [I was] losing big chunks of time in the beginning,” said Valtteri Bottas.
