described the Mexican's driving as "crazy".
But team boss Whitmarsh, who has signed the 22-year-old to replace the Mercedes
-bound Hamilton in 2013, told the Independent he disagrees with the 2008 world champion.

"There is a diamond that needs to be honed there and that is quite an interesting challenge," added Whitmarsh. (GMM)
