Sebastian Vettel is frustrated by questions regarding his controversial radio outburst during the Mexican Grand Prix.

When Vettel was asked after the race if he feared a disrepute charge, the German responded angrily, asking why the question needed to be asked.

"I do not understand why you try to push me into a corner by asking this question," he said.

Told that his behaviour was a bad example for children, Vettel insisted: "Do you think I think about kids when I race? No, I drive my race."

"Do you think the kids are thinking about me when they drive their races? No, they drive their races," he said.

When asked what whjat was said between him and Charlie Whiting when he went to apologise to the race director, Vettel said: "This does not concern you."

Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene revealed that he had spoken with Vettel about the incident after the race.

"We talked together, me and Sebastian, and that's it," said the Italian. "I don't have to tell in public what I am doing with the drivers.

"He excused himself (to Whiting) and I'm sure it is not going to happen again."
