Lewis Hamilton believes he was blameless for his crash with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg at the climax of the Austrian GP despite being booed on the podium. Rosberg was handed a ten-second penalty by the stewards after they ruled the world championship leader had caused the crash by not leaving Hamilton racing room.However, Rosberg accused Hamilton of causing the crash immediately after the race and later added he did not agree with the stewards verdict. They gave me the blame, which sucks. I respect that, but I am of a different opinion, he said on Sunday night during a video briefing on Facebook. A despondent Nico Rosberg said he feels absolutely gutted to have collided with team-mate Lewis Hamilton and lost a potential race win. But Hamilton told Sky Sports F1: I went to the outside, I believe I was ahead going in but he was in my blind spot. I left tons of room for him to make the corner and I got to the white line and I began to turn and boom, big hit.Im pretty sure he hit me, rather than the other way. Lewis wins epic Austrian GP Lewis Hamilton clashed with Nico Rosberg on the last lap on the way to victory in Spielberg. Sky F1 pundit Martin Brundle concurred with Hamiltons account, arguing: I dont think Lewis could have left him any more room.Lewis was on the racing line and couldnt have gone any further left. He was up against the white line, presumably hoping to cut back underneath Nico from a more acute angle. I think Nico will look at that incident and realise his attempt to intimidate Hamilton and run him wide was a critical error.Remarkably, a second collision between the two Mercedes cars nearly occurred when Hamilton, bumped onto the run-off area at Turn Two, attempted to return to the track and overtake his team-mate for the lead. Following their coming together on the last lap, Lewis Hamilton suffered the wrath of the partisan Nico Rosberg fans who booed him on the podium. I tried not to lose too much ground and he didnt leave any space, said Hamilton.Normally when you have an incident like that you kind of move over if the other car is coming on, but he hugged the white line, and as I came out he appeared out of nowhere so I had to take the grass. But it was ok.Referencing the boos he received on the podium, perhaps because the on-track commentary suggested Hamilton was at fault for the collision, the world champion added: These things are not the greatest, but it happens, I forgive them.Obviously Ive experienced being up there when other people have been booed for a real reason - taking someone out or doing something intentional - but I dont see how they got that opinion today.

Ilya Samsonov Jersey .C. -- Martin Kaymer set a U.BRISBANE, Australia -- Jack Brabham, the three-time Formula One champion who famously pushed his car to the finish line to claim his first season title, died Monday at his Gold Coast home. He was 88. The Australian driver -- known as Sir Jack in racing paddocks around the world after he was knighted in 1979 -- won world titles in 1959 and 1960 and became the only F1 driver to win a world championship in a car of his own construction -- the rear-engined BT19 -- which he drove to the title in 1966. The following year the Brabham team won its second successive world championship when New Zealander Denny Hulme drove the BT20 to victory. Brabham won his final Grand Prix race in South Africa in 1970 before retiring from F1 at the age of 44. Brabham continued to compete at different venues after his F1 retirement and his three sons, Geoff, Gary and David also had professional racing careers. Two of his grandsons, Matthew and Sam, are racing in the U.S. and Britain. "Its a very sad day for all of us," Brabhams youngest son, David, said in a statement. "He lived an incredible life, achieving more than anyone would ever dream of and he will continue to live on through the astounding legacy he leaves behind." The family said Brabham was a brilliant engineer, and technological innovations developed by the Brabham team helped to shape F1. In March 2009, David Brabham helped celebrate a 50-year anniversary for his father. Sebring International Raceway in Florida was the venue where Jack Brabham wrapped up his first Formula 1 championship on Dec. 12, 1959, pushing his Cooper-Climax T51 across the finish line for a fourth-place finish. "I was leading the race right up to the last 500 yards and the car ran out of petrol," Brabham said in an interview with The Associated Press at his home on the Gold Coast, Queensland state, in 2009. "I coasted to about 50 yards away and I pushed the car over the line. If I would have received any assistance I would have been disqualified. I managed to finish fourth, which was enough to win the championship." That race was won by Brabhams close friend, business associate and race-car designer Bruce McLaren of New Zealand. Brabham was not well enough to make the Sebring trip in 2009, but David re-enacted his fathers famous finish and also drove a handful of laps in the same car in which his father won that 1959 championship. Jack Brabhams career accomplishments were lengthy. In addition to his three world titles and 126 races from 1955 to 1970, he won the constructors championship in 1966 and 1967. He had 14 Grand Prix wins and 31 podium finishes. Australian Grand Prix chairman Ron Walker said Brabham would be "remembered as one of motorsports most influential figures" adding that his feat of winning the world championship in a car bearing his own name was unlikely to ever be replicated. "The contributions that Sir Jack made to the sport as wwell as the Australian Grand Prix will never be forgotten and his legacy will continue to resonate among drivers and fans," Walker said.dddddddddddd. Born on April 2, 1926, in the southern Sydney suburb of Hurstville, John Arthur Brabham grew up driving and maintaining his fathers fruit and vegetable delivery vehicles. After a brief career in engineering, he joined the Australian Air Force as a flight mechanic and later set up his own engineering works in Sydney and became a pilot. He won four Australian championships between 1948 and 1951. In 1955, Brabham moved to England and teamed up with John and Charles Cooper to make his Grand Prix debut at Aintree, England. He returned to Australia after he retired and his new interests included developing a farm, car dealership and aviation company. He was also a spokesman for a major Japanese automaker and maintained his interest in the sport, visiting numerous major international races. "On track he was always the toughest of tough competitors, tough sometimes to the point at which Id wonder how could such a nice bloke out of a car grow such horns and a tail inside one!" British great Stirling Moss wrote about Brabham in the introduction to a book about one of his biggest race rivals. "If you ever raced against Jack youd really know youd been in a race ... (he) played the game as if your life depends on it, no quarter asked, and absolutely none given. To his natural driving ability he added a deeper technical understanding." "That was a reasonable comment," Brabham told the AP, smiling, when he read the excerpt. Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles described Brabham, a four-time Indianapolis 500 starter, as "the patriarch of a racing dynasty." "Every time an Indy car runs at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, you can find roots that trace back to Jack Brabhams rear-engined Cooper Climax T54 that he drove to 9th place in the 1961 Indianapolis 500," Boles said. "In addition to starting the rear-engine revolution at IMS, Brabham competed ... and designed race cars that competed in the 500." Later in life, Brabham suffered from poor hearing and macular degeneration that prevented him from reading road signs, making driving difficult. He said a kidney illness "really clipped my wings," but he lived a busy life in a home overlooking the eighth hole of a resort golf course and sprinkled with mementos of his feats. Those included a glass-encased model replica of the Cooper Climax that he pushed over that Sebring finish line, and photos of the great driver with prime ministers, sporting personalities and fellow competitors. "The big aim now is to go out without an enemy in the world -- Im going to outlive," them he said in the 2009 interview. He is survived by his second wife, Margaret, and his three sons.
