Lotus have criticised Kimi Raikkonen in the wake of the Indian grand prix after Raikkonen almost took out his team mate.
Raikkonens tyres were giving way and Romain Grosjean attempted an overtake Raikkonen at the end of the main straight, however Kimi heavily defended his position almost taking both cars out.
“Kimi, get out of the f***ing way,” is the message that greeted Raikkonen over the radio from the Lotus pit wall as Raikkonen fired back “Don’t f***ing shout at me,” before the radio transmission broke up.
Trackside operations manager Alan Permane told sky sports f1 “It was a little disappointing, to be honest. He knew his tyres were finished and there was no need to have a battle, Romain was racing hard and I’m sure we’ll have a chat in the office about it.”
Team mate Romain Grosjean added βWe could have lost two cars.β
