I thought racing drivers were supposed to be petulant. Senna said some stuff over the years, prost had a strop, kimi had an ice cream, webber's not bad for a number two driver, alonso had a strop, vettel made some crazy gestures, msc crashed into people on purpose, parked at monaco, assaulted coulthard, montoya swore....feel free to add to this list :-)
Don't be so hurt if these young sports men do naughty things occasionally. Worse things happen at sea. Just consider it part of the show.
