Hungarian Grand Prix: Vettel complaint ‘was in heat of the moment’

“It was very close with Kimi in the end but, as he mentioned, he was very quick through the last two corners and then I couldn't really get him on the straight. I did all we could but surely wanted a little bit more.

Asked the now obligatory question about whether he would enjoy having Raikkonen as his team-mate next season – this time with the added twist of having finished behind the Lotus driver – Vettel admitted that he was quite happy racing rivals from other teams….

“He's one of the drivers I get along most with - he's been very honest all the time, which I appreciate a lot,” he noted, “I think, at the end of the day, we're a group of 20, 22 guys - some of them you like, others you don't. At the end of the day, you have to beat everyone. Obviously, we enjoy it a lot more if you're fighting other drivers in similar cars, meaning with similar pace, because it's kind of boring when you're only fighting your team-mate...”

Drunk words are sober thoughts.. If blurting out over the radio that you want the man in charge to penalise the bloke in front for defending his position, just imagine what gets said in the privacy of the back room.
