Webber reprimanded for Hamilton clash

Mark Webber was given a reprimand by the race stewards after the Australian Grand Prix for his part in a collision with Lewis Hamilton.

The Red Bull Racing driver was locked in a thrilling duel with Hamilton and Fernando Alonso for fourth place in the closing stages of the race when he slid into the back of Hamilton.

Webber lost his front wing and Hamilton was pushed off into the gravel trap - although the pair recovered to finish ninth and sixth respectively.

Hamilton saw the race stewards after the event to explain how he saw the accident and it was decided that Webber would be handed a reprimand for causing a crash.
