Narain Karthikeyan: Sebastian Vettel comments ‘shameful’
HRT driver Narain Karthikeyan hits back at world champion Sebastian Vettel following his post-race rant at the Malaysian GP
Narain Karthikeyan has hit out at Sebastian Vettel following the pair’s collision at the Malaysian Grand Prix, labelling the Red Bull driver a “cry baby” for his post-race comments.
Vettel was furious after clipping Narain Karthikeyan’s HRT as he lapped him, shredding his left rear tyre late on and forcing the German to pit, costing him fourth place at Sepang.
“Like on normal roads, you have some idiots driving around. It seems there is also one driving here,” said Vettel after the race.
But HRT driver Karthikeyan told the Hindustan Times: “For a world champion to say things like that is really shameful.
“It is really unprofessional. For a driver who has achieved so much to take out his frustrations on me just because he is having a difficult year is really sad.
“One does not expect a professional sportsman to be such a cry baby.”
