Adrian Sutil was left lamenting his clash with Heikki Kovalainen, blaming the Finn for the collision that made him spun and lose positions at the Japanese Grand Prix.
Sutil was chasing down the McLaren driver for ninth position and dove down the inside at the chicane, but the duo made contact and the German spun and lost all chances of a good result.
The Force India driver claimed he had already passed Kovalainen and felt the Finn was to blame for the incident.
"It was a really disappointing race," said Sutil. "The start was OK and I could keep my position but then I fell back to ninth and was caught behind Kovalainen.
"I got past him at the chicane but then he cut back across and I spun and lost a lot of time. That was really the end of the race for me.
"When that happens it's obviously very disappointing as I thought we could have done really well today and got some points. We've just got to look forward to Brazil now - it's a similar type of circuit to here where the car has been competitive."
Sutil, who had qualified in fourth place before a five-position grid penalty, went on finish in 14th, just behind team-mate Tonio Liuzzi.
The Italian, starting from the back of the grid, was satisfied with his race.
"Overall I think it was not a bad race," he said. "Starting from that position it was always going to be difficult to score points but we showed a strong pace in the race and never gave up.
"I could have a really good fight with Fernando [Alonso] and the Williams, plus also the Toro Rosso so I think it was a good effort from the team."
