Di Resta still upset with Heidfeld over German GP crash

Published

on

July.28 – Force India’s Paul di Resta is still irritated with Renault-GP’s Nick Heidfeld five days following the duo came together on the opening lap at the Nurburgring last weekend.

Currently Di Resta said that his rival has not apologised to him for the event, despite being given a drive-through penalty for causing it. When asked if he was disappointed with Heidfeld’s refusal to say sorry, di Resta answered: “Yeah, because it [the incident] was pretty blatant. I lost more out of it than he did. He was the one that committed the crime.

“You’ve got to [apologise when you make a mistake], haven’t you? It’s only right you do it, but whether they accept it or not is another thing. At least make the effort.”

Nick Heidfeld said that the cause he has not apologised is that he does not believe he was at mistake for the collision, which happened during the first few seconds of last weekend’s German GP.

Heidfeld also pointed to a coming together between the pair during in Canada in June, for which he believed di Resta was to blame.

“In Canada people thought he crashed into the back of my car, and rather than apologise, he blamed me,” Heidfeld said. “So why should I go and apologise? [In Germany] I locked up the front, he turned in front of me, I couldn’t do anything any more, and the stewards decided to give me a penalty. You have to live with that.

“It was a racing incident, I’m okay with them penalising me, but no special reason.”
