Q. If you come in the last few races into a similar situation to what Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber found in Singapore, where you fight side-by-side, do you take risks at all costs or play it safe?
FA: I don't know – it depends on the situation. All situations are unique and difficult to compare to any other one. If you see clearly that you have an advantage into the corner and think you are okay then you go for it. If you are at a disadvantage in that corner then maybe you go off the throttle because you need to finish races. [Mark] Webber was very lucky in Singapore. I saw the picture of the tyre, and that was luck!
It was okay, but 99 per cent of time during incidents like that both cars would be off. And if both cars were off then maybe now there would be different talks the week after – because now it seems that it was bad for Lewis [Hamilton], and if both cars were off then maybe it was not so much on Lewis. I think Hamilton was unlucky in that incident and Mark was lucky, but no-one was at fault.
Q: McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton has been criticised a lot recently for his mistakes. If you take a look at the incidents he was embroiled in at Monza and Singapore, how do you see it?
NH: I would say that he risked a little too much there. The chance to pass Felipe (Massa) may not have been good at that point. So there I would say that it was his mistake. In Singapore I would say that this was an accident, as I think that he gave Mark Webber enough space. He had to take the chance to be in a good position, so it was not a mistake but rather bad luck. These things happen in racing. If two drivers are heading for the same turn and both want to have the best line, then contact might happen. Webber came into the whole situation as he had to pass one of the Virgins, which caused Lewis to be in a good position. He was ahead for a couple of metres, then Mark braked very late so as not to lose his position. Lewis gave him some space, but then they touched. This is what makes racing exciting. For me this was a pure racing accident.

And Hulkenburg thought the same too..NH: For me this was a pure racing accident.
