While the Malaysian Grand Prix was exciting enough, it was what happened afterward that has made the headlines since last weekend.

Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll collided after the chequered flag, leaving the former Ferrari's in a bad way.

But who’s fault was it?

Well, Stroll denied any wrongdoing in the aftermath by saying: "I was on my normal line, picking up rubber, doing all my switch changes, shutting down the car and Sebastian came flying by me, pushing round the outside like the race was still on."

Unsurprisingly, Vettel also pleaded his innocence.

"I don't think he looked in his mirrors, he wasn't aware. He said he was just picking up rubber but picking up rubber doesn't justify changing direction and driving into someone," the German said.

It’s clear there’s some disagreement between the two drivers then.

But what has been said since?

Well, that question was put to him by


Has Vettel spoken to Lance since?

“You and Lance seemed to have pretty differing opinions on your crash. Have you been spoken to him since?” They asked.

His answer?

“No, I saw him quickly in the TV pen after the race – but not after that,” Vettel answered.


Sounds like they’re still in disagreement.

Luckily for all of us, new footage has emerged of the crash that was filmed on Stroll’s car. And it shows that it might have been Vettel in the wrong after all.

And after seeing the clip, Stroll reiterated his belief that he hadn’t done anything wrong.

"I'm definitely not taking the blame for it."

Looks like they will just have to agree to disagree.
