Vettel supports Hamilton penalty

Sebastian Vettel says that Lewis Hamilton deserved the drive-through penalty as it appeared he never intended on making the chicane in the first place.

“He had a better exit than me from the Adelaide hairpin. I was inside, to defend my position, and had the better line for curves six and seven. Lewis arrived with more speed, I went from the gas and braked and he kept going. For me it was clear that he was going to cut the chicane.”

“He cut the chicane completely. I had a similar situation at the Monaco chicane, when I was too late on the brakes. I overtook two cars but I let them go again and so the issue was settled. If someone stays out in front, there is a penalty. I think he should have let me past again because he had a better car and could have passed me again.”
