Abu Dhabi – Sutil and Trulli Still Mad about Brazil

by F1Fan on October 29, 2009

During todays pre Grand Prix press conference in Abu Dhabi it became evident that all is not forgiven between Trulli and Sutil after their incident in Brazil.

During the open questions period Ian Parkes from the Press Association asked Trulli and Sutil:

“I’m just wondering if you two guys have settled your differences after your exchange of words following your first lap accident in Brazil?

Which resulted in the following somewhat heated exchange of words:

Jarno Trulli:

“I think we’re going to discuss it probably tomorrow in the drivers’ briefing and in the GPDA briefing. Obviously it was very disappointing to end the race like that, especially on the first lap. Obviously I think I had every reason to be extremely furious. I’ve got all the evidence to show that I was there, I was next to him, so I think tomorrow we are going to discuss it.”

Adrian Sutil:

“I think there’s nothing to discuss. It was a quite obvious incident. In the end it was very disappointing for myself, even more, I think, because I was the one who was just driving and he lost control of his car and crashed in my back, so it was not my problem, it was his problem. I don’t know why he’s freaking out like that, to be honest.”

Jarno Trulli (Laughing):

“If you want, I can show you some pictures. I don’t know if you’re blind but they clearly show you that my front wing is next to your front wing, so…”

Adrian Sutil:

“Yeah, but you’re trying to overtake me on the outside on the kerbing. There was not a problem…”

Jarno Trulli:

“So you mean… you didn’t move there…”

Adrian Sutil:

“No, you were just not going off the power. The same happened in Barcelona where you lost control again and crashed again into a Force India car. You just have to sometimes also…”

Jarno Trulli:

“I just lost…”

Adrian Sutil:

“…expect the limits of the car. If there’s no way to go, you have to back off, that’s how racing is, and I don’t know how long you want to learn it.”

Jarno Trulli:

“In Barcelona I spun and he hit me because he tapped the kerb, he completely cut the circuit and he didn’t slow down, so basically… Anyway, I think it’s better…”

Fernando Alonso: (to Kimi Raikkonen):

“Shall we go?”

Adrian Sutil:

“No, no. Watch the race in Barcelona. I didn’t hit you, you hit me. I don’t know what’s the problem, but maybe your eyes are a problem.”

Jarno Trulli:

I don’t have any feeling about him.

Adrian Sutil:

“I don’t understand, really, sorry.”

Question from Alan Baldwin – Reuters:

“I was actually going to ask a similar question, but maybe the two of you can agree on what you said after the incident in Brazil, because obviously Jarno was seen to be gesticulating and saying quite a few things. Could you just tell us what was said at the time?”

Jarno Trulli:

“I was furious because I said ‘didn’t you see me?’ I mean, I was next to him and he kept pushing me going outside until I was obviously on the kerbs. I couldn’t believe…”

Adrian Sutil:

“..the kerbs, not a problem to be on the kerb, I think. Where’s the problem?”

Jarno Trulli:

“Ok, no problem, it’s OK. As long as we know the rules.”

Adrian Sutil:

“I know the rules.”

Jarno Trulli:

“Fantastic !!”

I just hope that they’re not next to each other coming into the first corner after the start, given their current mood I doubt that either would give way to the other, which could very well result in an early test of the run off areas at the Yaz Marina Circuit.
