Like many in the field, Bottas raced at Le Castellet in the junior categories and says that he has enjoyed returning to the "very technical" track. "Engine performance has never been a problem for us", Hamilton said.
On seeing a video recording of the incident, he said: "He took him right out - ah, man, that's insane".
Vettel limped back to the pits to get a new nose piece while Bottas got a new tire for the one that was shredded by the nudge from the four-time former champion.
"I tried to push everything in the last attempt, but looking back, I pushed too hard", accepted the Ferrari driver.
Vettel needed a new front wing for his Ferrari and had to work his way from the back of the pack to settle for a fifth-place finish behind Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo. "I went for the outside and I think I braked quite a bit later and left enough room for him to be inside still", Bottas said.

McLaren's worst qualifying display of the season resulted in him starting from 16th, and he was unable to recover from a spin when Vettel overtook him as he was running last before retiring.
Sitting to Hamilton's right, he jovially said: "Next time you see Seb you should ask him to change his style". "We're all on the edge, we're fighting for the world championships, we're not pootling around, we're out there putting our lives on the line, we're out there putting the cars as far beyond the edge as we can in the safest manner".
Lukaku and Hazard lead Belgian blitz of Tunisia
Thomas Meunier put him in behind the defence and Lukaku tucked his shot away, celebrating with De Bruyne, who started the move. Unless Panama beat England in Sunday's Group G match, Belgium will be through with a game to spare while Tunisia will be out.
"It is not like being on a train track". "It's as simple as that - sometimes you have these days, but let's see". To watch England every year, I used to collect the cards, and hoped they'd win the World Cup. "We are only human".
Many F1 fans travelled long distances by auto to attend the race weekend, but were unable to reach the circuit and use their tickets.
He was unhurt and after climbing from his vehicle walked back to the pits with his helmet firmly in place, before the session resumed and Hamilton scorched to pole on his final flying lap.
