Raikkonen says he deserved penalty for hitting Hamilton:

Kimi Raikkonen said he deserved the penalty he
received for colliding with Lewis Hamilton at the start of the British
Grand Prix.

Hamilton
dropped to the back of the field after Raikkonen locked up and slid
into his right-rear corner at Village, the first braking zone of the
lap.

Raikkonen was given a 10-second penalty for the collision, which
prompted suspicion from Mercedes, with Hamilton referring to
“interesting tactics” from Ferrari,
and senior Mercedes figures suggesting it was “deliberate or
incompetence”, following Sebastian Vettel’s recent collision with
Valtteri Bottas at the start of the French Grand Prix.

The Finn recovered from serving the penalty at his first pitstop to
finish third at Silverstone, passing countryman Valtteri Bottas late on
to claim the final step on the podium.                           

When asked in parc ferme after the race if the penalty was fair, Raikkonen said: “Yeah, it was my mistake. That’s fine.

"I deserve it and I took the 10 seconds and kept fighting. That’s how it goes.

"Obviously on the third corner I locked a wheel and ended up hitting Lewis in the rear corner and he spun.

"My bad, that is how it goes sometimes. It was not a straightforward race.”
