Lewis Hamilton on Sunday luckily survived collision with his Mercedes team mate Nico Roseberg, during the last lap, to claim title for Austrian Grand Prix.

Rosberg forced Hamilton to go off track but the Briton managed to stay in the game and scored the title; while Rosberg suffered frontal damages in the course and concluded the race on fourth position.

The collision concluded a titanic contest between the two Mercedes men after an incident-packed race that left Mercedes team bosses describing their drivers as 'brainless'.

An inquiry has been raised in the matter.

"I was on the outside," said Hamilton, on team radio. "It wasn't me that crashed."

This was Hamilton's 46th win of the career.
