My finger slipped - Hamilton

on

Lewis Hamilton, who lost the Championship title at Interlagos this weekend, admitted that he made a mistake during the race as the car all of a sudden got stuck in neutral. The youngster said: "My finger slipped on the steering wheel and I accidentally pressed the button used for the starting sequence."

Due to his error, Hamilton dropped down to 18th place: "The car went into neutral and I had to reinitialize the system, that is, reload the gearbox management program."

The Briton finished the Brazilian Grand Prix in 7th place and saw the title slip through his fingers as Kimi Raikkonen didn't only win the race at Interlagos but also the Championship.
