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."
