Germany - Formula 1's title protagonists insist they will continue to "respect" one another through their 2017 battle.

Just 6 points divides Sebastian Vettel from Lewis Hamilton after 5 races.

Mutual respect

The pair came close to touching wheels two weeks ago in Barcelona, where Mercedes' Hamilton called the Ferrari driver's move "dangerous".

But afterwards, they said their mutual respect remains intact.

Hamilton said:"I didn't say anything bad.

"I'm glad I was able to have a battle and didn't damage anything but there's nothing lost between us.  The respect stays the same."

Ferrari's Vettel agrees: "Away from the track there is no reason not to get along with each other.

"You always have to respect when the others do a good job. The respect will remain."

Hamilton won in Barcelona recently, but Mercedes team figures have been quoted as saying they are worried about Monaco, where the long-wheelbase car concept could struggle.

No close battle

Vettel admits he hopes Monaco is not as close a battle as Barcelona.

The German added:"The idea of having close battles is obviously nice but we don't want to battle them close, we want to be ahead of them."
