Red Bull Racing F1 Team driver Sebastian Vettel blamed Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen for his retirement during this afternoon's Hungarian Grand Prix. The young German was forced out of the race with front suspension damage after making contact with Raikkonen at the start of the race.

Vettel said to 'BBC': "I had a collision. I made contact in first corner with Kimi. I was on the inside, had a clean run to accelerate and then his car came sideways and yeah, we touched. He crashed into my car, so...

"It can happen, but in the end I mean it was the reason why the first pitstop already was bad. And then at some point the front left suspension gave up and we had to retire the car."
