Peter Sauber has denounced members of the Ferrari and McLaren teams for displaying "unsporting" behaviour during Sunday's Korean Grand Prix.

Hinwil based Sauber's founder and boss said he was upset to see team members of the rival teams celebrating jubilantly when Red Bull's Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel retired from the front of the inaugural Yeongam event.

In terms of the championship fight, it was indeed Ferrari and McLaren who benefitted most from Red Bull's problems, but after he saw their celebrations on the pitwall monitors, Sauber said: "They were scenes that didn't please me at all.

"Very unsporting," the 67-year-old told Swiss daily Blick.

Meanwhile in Korea, Bernie Ecclestone helped veteran Blick correspondent Roger Benoit celebrate his 600th Grand Prix.
