Mark Webber was furious with Romain Grosjean on Sunday at Suzuka. The Australian referred to his French rival as "the first lap nutcase Grosjean", after yet another first-corner crash. After a spate of incidents this year, Grosjean was banned at Monza for the Spa first-corner crash.

Stewards gave him a ten-second stop and go penalty for Sunday's Webber crash. "Maybe he needs another holiday (ban)," Webber told the British broadcaster Sky. "How many times can you make the same error?"

Mercedes' Nico Rosberg was also affected, telling reporters the cause was "Grosjean again". "Romain, Romain, what are you doing?" BBC commentator David Coulthard said. "So many first-corner incidents."

Another former F1 driver, Johnny Herbert, called on Lotus to sack the reigning GP2 champion. "I don't see what he's adding to the team," he said on Sky television.

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh said Sunday's incident was "classic Grosjean". Grosjean admitted to Sky that Sunday's was a "stupid crash" and said he had yet to speak to his Lotus bosses about their reaction. (GMM)
