Lewis Hamilton insists that McLaren won't make the same mistake as rivals Red Bull after the Briton found himself in the best seat in the house as Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel collided in the Turkish Grand Prix.
Hamilton was running third when the pair clashed on the run to turn twelve, albeit after a dramatic battle with team-mate Jenson Button which saw the pair race wheel-to-wheel through the final corners.
following the race, Hamilton insisted that – while he and Button were happy fight for position on track – the pair were 'professionals' and wouldn't do anything to risk a result for the team.
"It won't happen with me and Jenson," he said. "We're both world champions, we're both professionals, we both have a huge amount of respect for each other.
"We want to finish the race, we do both want to win, but not in an aggressive manner. When I win he is happy for me and vice versa. For sure, you want to be ahead, so if you finish second you're not the happiest. However, he is a very supportive team mate and he is doing a solid job.”
Hamilton went on to praise Button for the manner in which he had battled for the victory in Turkey before being forced to back off as the pair went into fuel safe mode for the final laps.
"We had a great battle out there and he wasn't aggressive, he wasn't silly, he didn't make any stupid mistakes, and that's why we had a good battle," he said. "I have no doubts the rest of the year will be the same.
"I wouldn't compare him [Button] to anyone that I've driven with. He is a unique driver in his own way. He's been nothing but a positive energy on the team, he's polite to me and he is a great bloke to get on with.
"We got a one-two [and] it was a professional drive from two team-mates. You can't ask for more from a team."
