Vettel denies calling Hamilton 'stupid'

Jul.26 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel has denied calling Lewis Hamilton stupid.

After last weekend's German Grand Prix, the Red Bull driver hit out at McLaren driver Hamilton's decision to overtake him despite being a lap down.

"It's a bit stupid to disturb the leaders," the official FIA transcript of the post-race press conference quotes Vettel as saying at Hockenheim.

But world champion Vettel insisted in Budapest on Thursday: "I didn't say it was a stupid decision.

"If I say after the race that I think it was unnecessary and then it gets quoted that I said he is stupid, it is quite disappointing."
