Sebastian Vettel has apologised for swearing during a post-race podium interview in Abu Dhabi last weekend.
The defending F1 champion was being interviewed by David Coulthard
when he said that the race had presented Red Bull
with 'a chance to 'f*ck it up' after he was forced to start from the pitlane.
With race winner Kimi Raikkonen
also swearing during his podium interview, the FIA
has written to teams to warn them over inappropriate language
and Vettel said he was sorry for the comments he had made.
“I'm terribly sorry for using the wrong word on the podium and I'm sorry if I have offended anyone who was watching,” he said.
“In the heat of the moment, I didn't use the right words and I apologise. I'll do it better next time.”
