Mercedes Technical Director James Allison has reportedly suggested Ferrari may be deliberately crashing into Mercedes, according to Toto Wolff.

Kimi Raikkonen collided with Lewis Hamilton at the start of the British Grand Prix, dropping the Mercedes driver to the bottom of the field by the end of the first lap.

The incident comes after Sebastian Vettel hit Valtteri Bottas at the beginning of the French Grand Prix two weeks ago.

Speaking to Ted Kravitz of Sky Sports at the conclusion of the British Grand Prix, Mercedes Team Principal Wolff quoted the words of Allison, saying, “Do you think [Ferrari are] deliberate or incompetent?”

Both Vettel and Raikkonen were penalized for their respective crashes with the two Mercedes drivers.

Lewis Hamilton questioned Ferrari’s “interesting tactics” during his podium interview with Martin Brundle.

“It’s definitely not intentional,” commented 2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button.

“I’m not happy,” Wolff said of the British Grand Prix after his drivers came home in second and fourth.

Sebastian Vettel won the Grand Prix and has extended his Championship lead to 8 points over Lewis Hamilton.
