Raikkonen says Perez’s move was "stupid"

Formula 1 title contender Kimi Raikkonen says that McLaren’s Sergio Perez driving like an idiot following a Monaco Grand Prix collision between the pair, when they fight for fifth place.

The consequences of the incident Kimi Raikkonen was dropped from fifth place to finish tenth due to the puncture.

The incident maker Sergio Perez damaged his front wing and eventually forced out to the end of the race when his brakes failed.

“Actually that (idiot) is a nice word compared with what he really said,” said Lotus team Principal Eric Boullier when asked about Raikkonen’s radio explosion.

“He hit me from behind and that’s about all there is to it,” said Raikkonen.

“If he thinks it’s my fault that he came into the corner too fast then he obviously has no idea what he’s talking about.

“It’s not the first time he’s hit someone in the race. He seems to expect people to be always looking at what he might do, then move over or go straight on if he comes into the corner too quick and isn’t going to make it without running into someone.”

“Because of one stupid move from Sergio we’ve lost a lot of points to Sebastian in the championship and you can’t afford to lose ground like that.”

Sergio Perez said: “Kimi did not give me any room at all. I touched the wall on the entry to the corner and I had no room for that.

“It was really, really a big shame. I overtook [team-mate] Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso [of Ferrari], and Jenson overtook me there. You have to give some space.

“The main issue was the overheating of the brakes so we have to analyse what happened there.”
