Thomas also joined the Ferrari mechanics beneath the podium to watch Raikkonen's team-mate Sebastian Vettel receive his trophy for finishing second behind race victor Lewis Hamilton.

Bottas' slight nudge of Raikkonen caused a chain-reaction, sending Raikkonen into Verstappen. We could not believe it when they came to get us and took us to Ferrari.

Bottas was not penalized after an investigation, but Verstappen himself held a similar view of the incident, saying Raikkonen was blameless for the contact that ultimately ended both of their races.

The victory in the last round over Nantes with the score 3: 2, for Lyon was very important psychological character. In the first leg, Bertrand Traore opened the scoring with a header off of a set piece in the 25th minute.

The Dutchman was on the outside when Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas collided heading into Turn 1, with the Ferrari driver bouncing off the Mercedes and into Verstappen's Red Bull vehicle, eliminating both with suspension damage.

"It's just unfortunate", Verstappen said. If Valtteri had not touched Kimi, we all would have had enough room to get through that corner.

"I was inside for Turn One, Kimi came from outside and tried to overtake from there", said the Mercedes driver.

Raikkonen left Spain with zero points as a result of the collision, and was forced to watch on as teammate Sebastian Vettel fought with Lewis Hamilton for the race win. "Obviously it's very disappointing, we had been running quite well all weekend and I was happy with the behavioUr of the vehicle". Due to the contact it meant Kimi lost control and slammed into me, but it wasn't his fault.

The Australian was running behind the early top 3 towards the end of proceedings, but was bumped into the podium finishes when Valtteri Bottas retired with engine failure and had a margin on the 2 Force Indias to take his first top 3 position since Mexico in November.

"I got hit on the right rear corner, I think it was Bottas, and then obviously the vehicle jumped because of that and I went into Max". When you get hit from behind there's not much you can do, so between Max and me there was nothing I could do.
