Button sees problems at Hamilton: ''Penalty's took over''

Lewis Hamilton didn't have his very best weekend at the Austrian Grand Prix. After a grid penalty the Briton had to start from fifth place and a time penalty during the race also deprived him of a place on the podium.

It looked just as good. Valtteri Bottas took the lead and a short distance away Hamilton followed. The two had created a huge gap after Max Verstappen retired and they seemed on their way to the first 1-2 of this season. Due to several Safety Cars the two got into trouble and Hamilton was finally classified fourth.

Hamilton falls short due to penalty's

''It was a tough weekend for Lewis. He's had two penalties this weekend and they've taken the upper hand anyway. However, it's only one weekend and the next weekend Lewis will retaliate again. I was his teammate for three years and that's when he always hit back,'' says Jenson Button at Sky Sports.

The Brit doesn't want to take anything away from Bottas' victory. ''It's a great victory for Valtteri who didn't do anything wrong this weekend," Button concludes. It remains to be seen whether Hamilton will be able to retaliate again next week. Then the drivers will race again on the Red Bull Ring, because it has never been ideal for Lewis.
