Lewis Hamilton said he gave back third position to team-mate Valtteri Bottas in Hungary because he "wants to win the title the right way".

The Mercedes driver honoured a promise to let the Finn back past him on the last lap, after Bottas moved out of his way to let him attack the Ferraris.

"I don't know whether it will come back to bite me in the backside," he said.

"I said at the beginning of the year I want to win it the right way and it was the right way to do things."

However, Hamilton, who finished fourth, admitted it was "a grey area" given the gap he established to Bottas after passing him.

"If he let me by and I pulled him along and we were two seconds apart it is a much easier thing to let him back," he said.

"But I was seven seconds up ahead and with the Ferraris and the team were in a difficult position.

It cost us three points and it could potentially cost the championship and we are perfectly conscious about that

"But it showed I am a man of my word and also that I am a team player. I am just as much a part of the team as anyone in it. It shows unity."In life, if you do good things, good things come back to you."
