Formula One: Crash with Lewis Hamilton all my fault, says Jenson Button

Canadian Grand Prix winner Jenson Button today defended his under-fire team-mate Lewis Hamilton after last night's dramatic, rain-lashed race.

Button described his amazing last-gasp win as the greatest of his career.

But much of the focus in Montreal remained on his crash incident with McLaren team-mate and fellow British star Lewis Hamilton.

Former world champion Nikki Lauda had rapped Hamilton in a TV commentary, saying after the collision as Hamilton tried to overtake Button: “What Hamilton did there goes beyond all boundaries.

“You cannot drive like this — it will result in someone getting killed.”

But Button, who had drifted into Hamilton's racing line, appeared to accept the blame, saying: “ I didn't see Lewis and I've apologised to him. We both agree it was one of those things.”
