Lewis Hamilton was heading for a ‘DISASTER’ and would have ‘tumbled down the order’ further than his fifth-place finish had he not pitted at the Turkish GP, claims F1 chief Ross Brawn

To which Hamilton said on Sunday: ‘If Ocon did it, then I could do it, for sure.’. But Lewis put his team off-balance and it was a bit of a no-man’s land stop in the end, but they had to stop. Hamilton, after sleeping on his radio rage for a night, looked to dilute any stories that he was left furious at his team. ‘Yesterday we took the risk to stay out hoping it would dry; it didn’t. I wanted to risk going to the end, but it was my call to stay out (eight laps earlier, when the idea was raised by the team) and it didn’t work.
