Sauber slates McLaren and Ferrari celebrations as 'unsporting'

27 October 2010

Peter Sauber has hit out at F1 2010 title contenders Ferrari and McLaren-Mercedes for having acted in what he deemed to be a 'very unsporting' manner during last weekend's inaugural Korean Grand Prix.

Sauber has revealed that in the immediate wake of Mark Webber's retirement on the second racing lap when the Australian lost control of his Red Bull Racing RB6 on a slippery kerb in the treacherous conditions, and Sebastian Vettel's subsequent engine failure whilst in the lead just ten laps from home, he witnessed on the pit wall monitors members of the energy drinks-backed outfit's two world championship rivals jumping around for joy.

“They were scenes that didn't please me at all,” the 67-year-old – whose eponymous Hinwil-based operation uses Ferrari engines – told Swiss daily newspaper Blick. “[It was] very unsporting.”
