Valtteri Bottas was very angry following being hit from Raikkonen

Valtteri Bottas was very angry following being hit from behind by Kimi Raikkonen while racing towards the P3 in Russian GP.

Following the Pit-stop Williams driver faced a tough fight running his way through the tight-traffic of Daniel Ricciardo and Sergio Perez. Finally he done so, overtook Perez on the final lap, the podium was within his sights ahead of Raikkonen.

The Finns were battling over third place on the final lap, having both just passed Perez, when Raikkonen attacked Bottas’ Williams into Turn 4 and they collided.

Finally, Kimi handed a thirty-second time penalty, meaning he was relegated to eighth and he also had three points put on his Super-licence.

Williams speedy disputed his compatriot opinion on the clash, having said on the radio: “What the f**k did he do?”

The Williams driver added: “I don’t think it was a racing incident.

“I didn’t see anyone there and I was in front, and then suddenly someone hits me.

“I should be on the podium, but I’m here with zero points instead. That’s just disappointing.

“It doesn’t really matter for me [if Raikkonen gets a penalty] because I’m not getting those points back.

“I would guess [he will] – I could look in the mirror and see it was not my fault.”
