Red Bull deny team orders imposed in Malaysia

I saw tears in the eyes of my mechanics so I know that we all bear the pain.

While the incident forced the British driver to retire from the race, it also resulted in both Red Bull drivers securing a podium finish, while teammate Nico Rosberg established his lead in the driver's championship standings with a comfortable third place.

Hamilton was on course to cruise to the 50th victory of his career, but with 15 laps remaining his engine blew up to hand victory to Daniel Ricciardo. I feel I have been blessed with the opportunity to be here with this great team around me, this great team, and lots of victories and records I am breaking time and time again.

His first technical DNF of the season, Hamilton heads into the final five rounds of the season facing a 23 point deficit to Rosberg.

He had looked all set to snatch back the lead from Rosberg, who was relegated from second on the grid to 21st after he was hit by Vettel on the first bend.

"My question is to Mercedes", Hamilton said. "I said we'd win one this year, and here we go", Ricciardo said. "I can not accept that, because we do everything possible to give him the best auto and the best engine".

Ricciardo's win in the Red Bull was as exhilarating as it was desperately needed for the sport.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, as reported by The Daily Mirror, he said: "Someone doesn't want me to win this year".

There have been niggles but no one has suffered like Hamilton; for the fourth time this season his race was compromised by technical issues - and that's not counting the bad starts that have also plagued the Englishman this year.

"Someone has to give me some answers because it is just not acceptable".

Hamilton was nearly in tears after the dramatic end to his race which dealt a severe blow to his chances of securing a third drivers' championship in a row.

He further added, "It does not sit right with me". Done one race with it. "I will keep pushing".

Hamilton's post-race press conference was cancelled "by mutual consent" said Mercedes. If you speak to Lewis directly I guess he will not say this.

"I have no idea what is going to happen in the next five races".

Later Lauda said he planned to reassure Hamilton during their plane trip to Suzuka ahead of this weekend's Japanese Grand prix.

"I don't know if my two engines are going to make it but I can only hope - and if I perform as I performed this weekend, then there is still everything to play for".

But victory for Hamilton means Rosberg will have to finish second to retain his championship lead, and then by only the slenderest of margins: one point. However, it was not to be and now Hamilton is left chasing the latter by 23 points.
