Two-time world champion Mika Hakkinen, in an interview with the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, expressed astonishment over the conduct of the Lotus team at the race in India, where Alan Permane shouted on the radio at Kimi Raikkonen to resign from teammate Romain Grosjean. The Finn, who found himself in trouble at the time as his tires were completely worn out, replied that he was waiting for the right moment as he wanted to prevent Felipe Massa from following him, who followed Grosjean.
Perman's behavior greatly angered Lotus and Raikkonen fans, so team boss Eric Boullier apologized to Raikkonen on Monday.
Now Raikkonen's compatriot Mika Hakkinen has also expressed his opinion. “Alan Permane was not behaving correctly. I understand that the passions are heated at the end of a long and strenuous race, but shouting on the radio can only make things worse. In all the teams where I raced in my career, the radio conversations were respectful. ”
For the End, Hakkinen also asked Lotus why they were so nervous, as Raikkonen could have been alerted to Grosjean’s arrival earlier.
