Rosberg unimpressed by Perez

Rosberg unimpressed by Perez

Nico Rosberg didn't have any kind words about Sergio Perez's driving after the Japanese Grand Prix.

The pair appeared to be attracted to each other at Suzuka as they nearly collided in the pit late following an unsafe release from Rosberg's pit crew, while they also made contact late in the race, which resulted in Perez picking up a puncture.

Rosberg went on to finish eighth while the late pit stop cost Perez as he was down in P15, but the Mercedes driver believes the Mexican was a little naughty with his blocking.

"It was a good start and I was very comfortable but I just got it stuck on the pit-stop and from then on it was difficult after the drive-through," said the German.

"It was enjoyable at time and then with Perez, it's not good what he's doing, we know he has issues. If you move once to block you have to move out of the way, the rules are clear.

"It was very good he punctured his tyre and then it was just onward from there."
