Heidfeld rammed into the rear of Resta’s car just at the opening lap of German Grand Prix causing Resta to finish 13th. Now Resta would like Heidfeld to say sorry for the accident. Heidfeld on the other hand has refused to do so and has not even spoken to Resta after the race which in his opinion was a racing accident and did not warrant an apology. A penalty of drive-through was imposed on Heidfeld at Nurburgring for crashing into Resta but was unable to serve it as he was already out of the race prior to the incident.
Renault's Nick Heidfeld’s crash into rear of Resta’s car has caused him much distress as he came 13th. These two racers had clashed and crashed previously too when Resta was overtaking Heidfeld at the Canadian Grand Prix on 12th of June.
The crash caused Resta’s car some damage and he had to get a new front wing fitted which cost him some loss of time. Hence, his demand for an apology. Di Resta said that since he had apologized previously when it had been his fault it was only fitting and appropriate that Heidfeld too said sorry for delaying his and causing his car some damage.
