Sebastian vettel admitted he had made a stupid mistake that cost him and polish rival Robert Kubica certain podium finishes at sundays australian grand prix.

the german immediatly apologised to kubica after the pair collided while fighting for second place three laps from the of the race in melbourne and earning his team a hefty fine.”i had a stupid racing accident”vettel said.”i am sorry to the team and also to robert as it didnt just mean the end to my race but also his”.

Stewards found vettel to be at fault and demoted him10 places to the starting grid at the next weeks malaysian grand prix. they also fined his red bull team $50,000 for telling vettel to countine driving with a broken front wheel instead of immediately retiring.

Vettel, who last year became the youngest man to win a grand prix, said his mistake was the result of his natural competitiveness. kubica, using a hard compound tyre, was rapidly catching Vettel and race leader jenson button,who were both using softer tyres that were starting to wear out. Kubica said vettel’s mistake had not only cost him a place on the podium but also the chance to try and catch button.
