Lewis Hamilton has said that he feels 'disrespected' after the radio messages at Abu Dhabi.
Personnel from the Mercedes team then came on the radio to tell Hamilton to pick up his pace as they felt the race win was under threat.
Speaking to Channel 4, Hamilton said: “That was one of many uncomfortable moments of the year. Ultimately seeing what had been said afterwards, I felt quite disrespected by the individuals who had spoken.
“You don’t expect that from those who are in charge of so many people.”
When asked if the situation had been resolved, Hamilton added: “No, it hasn’t.”
