Kimi: Stewards need to sort priorities

Kimi: Stewards need to sort priorities

Kimi Raikkonen was unhappy with the stewards in Monaco, saying more needed to be done when Max Chilton hit him while unlapping himself behind the Safety Car.

The Safety Car was brought out for the second time on Sunday afternoon when Adrian Sutil crashed his Sauber at the exit of the tunnel.

After the debris was cleared up, lapped cars were allowed to pass during which time Chilton hit Raikkonen's Ferrari.

The impact caused a puncture, forcing Raikkonen to pit and effectively putting an end to his podium challenge.

Chilton was later reprimanded, however, Raikkonen, who received a reprimand of his own for a later incident with Kevin Magnussen, feels more should have been done.

"Nobody talked about the Safety Car thing until I asked," the Ferrari driver told ESPN.

"It's not very straightforward unfortunately with those things sometimes.

"Obviously that was the thing that destroyed the race, but clearly they were not very interested.

"They asked why I missed the drivers' parade, but that was because I did not feel very good. So they make a big story about that, but not the main things."

Raikkonen finished the grand prix in 12th place, one lap down on race winner Nico Rosberg.
