Raikkonen was awarded a ten-second penalty for his trouble, which was at least double the sanction given to his team-mate Vettel for wiping Valterri Bottas a week ago but nowhere near the handicap suffered by Hamilton.
Mercedes decision not to bring Bottas to pit under the safety auto cost another podium place for one of their drivers. It left Hamilton facing a recovery drive through the field, which he executed well to return to second position behind championship leader Sebastian Vettel. "I'll never give up".
The safety car's second appearance lasted three laps, setting up an 11-lap sprint at the end. From there he followed the leading auto of Sebastian Vettel, unable to catch the German and remaining behind him after the first round of pit stops.
He had brought it down to 2.4s when Marcus Ericsson lost the rear of his vehicle when he turned into the first corner with DRS still open and flew across the gravel and nose-first into the tyres.
Responding to Hamilton's remarks, Vettel said: "It's quite silly to think anything that happened was deliberate". "I kept fighting - that's how it goes".
