Heidfeld is sorry

Thu, 5 October 2006, 02:41

At Suzuka on Thursday, Nick Heidfeld apologised to Sakon Yamamoto for rudely accusing him of causing a last-lap shunt after last Sunday’s Chinese grand prix.

The fuming German mistook Yamamoto for the rookie’s Japanese teammate Takuma Sato, who was disqualified by stewards for his driving.

”I found him and apologised,” a sheepish Heidfeld, racer for the BMW-Sauber team, told reporters, ”so everything is okay.”

Heidfeld said that by the time of the stewards’ meeting in China, also attended by Sato, he had ‘calmed down’ and therefore did not launch the same attack.
