Adrian Sutil says he is happy to settle his dispute with Jarno Trulli in the stewards' room after the Italian accused him of deliberately driving the Toyota off the track on lap one of the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The pair collided on the exit of Turn 4 as Trulli attempted to pass Sutil on the outside. Trulli ran wide on to the grass, lost control of his car and made contact with Sutil, whose Force India then careered off the track, then back on it, collecting Fernando Alonso's Renault for good measure.
A furious Trulli remonstrated with Sutil at the scene afterwards, and told BBC TV that he believed the German had pushed him off the track deliberately.
"Basically, Sutil was on the inside I was on the outside," he said. "I overtook him gradually because I came out of that corner with more speed. And then I saw him keeping pushing and pushing me to the outside until I was on the grass. So I lost control of the car and I hit the wall. It was a deliberate maneuver and a really dangerous maneuver, from my point of view and also Alonso's point of view.
"I have talked to him [Alonso] and he says this guy is completely crazy and didn't think this was right."
Sutil remained calm about the incident, claiming that it was Trulli and not him that had driven dangerously adding that he was entirely comfortable explaining his side of the story to the stewards in a meeting called for after the race.
"I got a hit in my rear end and just lost control. I didn't realize what happened because I was on my race line exiting this corner.
"I didn't do anything wrong, but Trulli tried it on the outside and just lost control somehow and crashed in to my car, so end of the race.
Asked whether he thought Trulli had been right to accuse him of dangerous driving, Sutil replied: "His maneuver was dangerous, I was flying over the gravel there and lost control. I didn't see anything and just drove my corner and he crashed into my car so I don't know what his problem is.
"Definitely we will go to the stewards, so I will have a pleasure to talk to him after the race in a normal way. The way he did it on the circuit was in a really low level."
