In the Russian interview with Rossiya 2, the 27-year-old hit out at the Enstone based team's rate of development this season as well as its pitstops, race strategies and bosses, and admitted it is possible he will be ousted for "business" reasons despite having a signed contract for 2012.

"It was an emotional interview," Kossatchenko is quoted as saying by Reuters.

"It was an exception and he apologised afterwards to the team. It will never happen again.

"We are really sorry and the management has discussed it with Vitaly already," she said, adding that she has also spoken with team boss Eric Boullier.
