Lotus still butthurt by Kimi Rakkonen's departure.We all remember the whiny twitter posts from Lotus after Raikkonen announced he had enough of driving for free and would be off to the land of tortellini and Lambrusco.
After statements proclaiming Gosjean as team leader, we figured things were tense at Lotus but not quite this bad.
The transcript in case you haven't figured it out:
Alan Permane: "Kimi, Get out of the fucking way!"
Kimi Räikkönen: ''Don't shout there fucker! I get out of the way when I have a chance, but not during fast corner''
The message was sent towards the end of the race as Grosjean was catching Raikkonen who was dealing with played out rubber.
Lotus apologized, possibly to to avoid a fine, and put a cute polar bear picture on their Facebook page...
“With hindsight, this radio message could have been sent in a less emotional way. There was a lot of tension, a lot of potential technical problems, and some of the words that flew around were simply not appropriate. Said Lotus team boss Eric Boullier “I know that quite a few people were surprised and I can only apologize for that on behalf of the team. It won’t happen again.”
Passive aggressive again.
