Formula One: Mercedes' Rosberg slams McLaren's Perez, says Mexican 'has issues'
SUZUKA, Japan (REUTERS) - Nico Rosberg criticised Sergio Perez's driving after a clash with McLaren's Mexican driver on the track at Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix following a near-miss in the pit lane.
The German, in the Mercedes, was angered by Perez's defensive tactics when he tried to overtake the Mexican for eighth place.
The two cars made contact, with the McLaren picking up a puncture and falling back down the field. Rosberg eventually finished eighth, Perez 15th.
"It's not good what he's doing, we know he has issues," Rosberg told reporters. "If you move once to block, you have to move out of the way, the rules are clear.
