Esteban Gutierrez has blamed Pastor Maldonado for their collision during Sunday's British Grand Prix.

Gutierrez went up the inside of Maldonado at the Vale but the duo made contact, with Maldonado being tipped into the air.

Gutierrez continued for a few corners but his damaged C33 spat him into the gravel at Farm.

The stewards, however, deemed him to be the responsible party and he will drop three places on the grid in Germany.

"I had a good race start," he said.

"After the restart I was fighting with Pastor. When I tried to overtake him in Vale he braked and did not leave me enough space.

"I was already beside him and could not avoid a collision with him. I feel very sorry for the team, as this is not the way a race should end."
