New on-board footage from Lance Stroll's Williams clears the Canadian from any blame for the clumsy post-race crash he suffered with Sebastian Vettel last weekend in Malaysia.

Both drivers were on their in lap after the Malaysian GP had been completed when they crashed into each other at low speed as they entered Turn 5 at Sepang.

The collision completely wiped out the left rear of Vettel's Ferrari who lost no time in blaming Stroll for the incident.

"Stroll is not looking where he’s going. He completely shunted into my car," Vettel quipped on the radio.

New footage however released earlier today tells a different story as seen from Stroll's vantage point.

As the sequence of pictures here-under show, the Canadian appears to enter Turn 5 on a constant radius, with a consistent and unchanged amount of lock.

In a clear case of misjudgment, and with ample track space on his left, Vettel appears from behind and simply cuts over on Stroll as the two cars enter the corner.
