Vettel unhappy with Raikkonen: “I’m racing three cars”
Vettel is unhappy with the way Kimi Raikkonen behaved himself during the Grand Prix, after the Finn firstly qualified in front of him and then didn’t let him pass during the Grand Prix itself at the start.

“I’m not particularly happy with the way Ferrari managed things on Saturday.
