Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene says James Allison "should be ashamed of himself" for reportedly questioning whether Kimi Raikkonen deliberately hit Lewis Hamilton in the British Grand Prix.
With Scuderia Ferrari driver Vettel in front, Mercedes chose to do the opposite of what Vettel did - ultimately choosing to leave him out, giving him track position but on older, slower tyres.
He fell to 16th but recovered to second, ahead of Raikkonen who completed the podium.
More frustration followed on Turn Three when Raikkonen locked up and crashed into Hamilton, leaving the reigning World champion to rejoin the contest in 18th position.
The Mercedes pair stayed out on harder medium tyres with Bottas now leading from Vettel and Hamilton third.

The figures are expected to substantially increase as municipal authorities have yet to finish assessing the scale of the damage. The United Nations said Secretary General Antonio Guterres had written to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offering support.
In Q2, lap records tumbled as the leaders clocked times inside Hamilton's 1:26.600 previous year, Vettel leading the way until Hamilton, on softs, took over again despite a grassy excursion at Becketts.
Raikkonen holds third position in the championship, 55 points behind Vettel.
Vettel he admitted he feared he would miss qualifying with a neck complaint, and though he went on to earn second on the grid he confessed to still being a little anxious going into the race.
Raikkonen would be penalised 10 seconds for the incident at Village, but had great pace throughout and would take advantage of an ailing Bottas in the closing laps to take third in the second Ferrari. Hamilton finished second and surrendered more ground to the German in what is turning out to be an epic and see-sawing title fight.
Hamilton is going for a fifth straight victory and a record sixth overall in his home Formula One race.

"I had to go over the limit to get that time out of the auto, which is risky", Hamilton said, still shaking a little, adding it was his "most pressurised" lap ever.
"I lost almost 3kg [in body fluids] trying to get back to the top for you and my team", he said, addressing his 6.7 million followers on the social media platform. "My view, I did the best that I could, but there seems to be opposite looks of what I'm doing unfortunately".
Hamilton could be proud of his recovery, but Vettel will surely be the happier after extending his lead at the top of the standings with a first win at Silverstone since 2009. "I will not give up, believe me, I will not give up". We knew a one-stop was not going to be easy, but we made a decision to take the risk.
