Frustrated Lewis Hamilton accepts he was partly at fault for poorly-timed pit stop that saw him finish fifth at Turkish Grand Prix after raging with his team and defying Mercedes’ orders to come in

Lewis Hamilton accepted he was at fault for a poorly-timed pit stop that saw him drop to a fifth-placed finish at the Turkish Grand Prix, after the Briton defied Mercedes’ request to come in. The seven-time Formula One champion raged at his own Mercedes team for bringing him in with just eight laps to go at the Turkish Grand Prix, which cost him two places as he finished fifth. At lap 42, Hamilton was asked by Mercedes to come in and pit spot for new intermediates which the Briton disagreed with and stayed out on the track until lap 50, when he dropped from third to fifth and nearly lost another place on the grid. The seven-time Formula One champion had not used a pit stop break at all when he was called in by Mercedes on lap 42.
