Sebastian Vettel believes his part in the Abu Dhabi swearing controversy has been blown out of proportion, the German explaining that there was no need for 'such a big fuss' after the event. The double World Champion swore during the post-race podium interviews, just moments after Kimi Räikkönen had said an expletive.
"I think if you are sensitive then you should watch a kids' programme," he said during Thursday's press conference at Austin. "You have the remote control in your hand – it was not intentional in the last race."
"It was unnecessary to create such a big fuss. Anyway, if I said some things that were not appropriate then I apologise. But there isn't a lot I have to do differently to succeed in that regard."
Vettel approaches the United States Grand Prix with a 10 point advantage over sole championship rival Fernando Alonso, meaning that he can seal a third Drivers' crown by scoring 15 more points than the Spaniard at the Circuit of the Americas.
