Raikkonen: No criticism, we have different stewards at each race

Kimi Raikkonen says that he gave enough room for Valtteri Bottas, and he could have avoided their collision in Mexican GP, but he holds “nothing against” his compatriot following the crash.

“I don’t think, post-incident talks help or change anything, there was not much room, but if you go over the kerb on the inside [where Bottas was] then there is enough room” said Raikkonen after the race.

“It was tight, but if you ask him, I’m sure he’s going to blame me. Obviously it was quite slippery there so he locked the front wheel. I had to turn in at some point – I cannot just go straight.”

Follow the incident stewards judged no further action was needed and Bottas went on to finish on the podium, while when the Finn’s are collided on the final lap of the Russian GP the Ferrari driver was handed a post-race penalty.

“It’s pointless to go through this – one guy will say it’s his fault, one guy will say it’s my fault, what are you trying to find, somebody to blame? It doesn’t help anybody. He said.

“We have different stewards at each race, and if you ask 10 people they will see it in a different way. Maybe he feels better now with what happened in Russia.

“I have nothing against anybody. This is racing, and if he has a better feeling now it’s good for him. Things have a certain way of working out in the long run.”
