Yoong slams Reid after clash

Alex Yoong

Alex Yoong was fiercely critical of A1 Team New Zealand's Jonny Reid following the pair's second controversial collision in as many meetings in Zhuhai.

Yoong and Reid collided in the opening laps of the Feature race in Sepang, and they touched again in the first few corners of today's Feature race in China.

Yoong spun into the barriers and retired as a result of the contact, but Reid kept going, and eventually finished second.

'I haven't seen the replay or spoken to him yet, but from my point of view he just took me out,' Yoong said.

'We were going side-by-side through a corner that was very wide and had plenty of room. We had contact, I'm off into the dirt and into the barrier.

'It was a big accident, so unless I find out something different from him, it was stupid and dangerous driving.

'We were going side-by-side through the corner, I was four or five feet from him and then the next thing I know he was hitting me.

The accident compounded another disappointing weekend for Malaysia, which had also been involved in the multi-car first lap accident in the Sprint race.

'Anything that could have gone wrong did go wrong,' Yoong added.

'There was nothing we could have done. The boys did a pretty good job and we just got it out in time for the Feature race and we only did half a lap again.

'The people who suffer the most are the mechanics. They worked so hard to get the car ready and now it is in the barrier.'
