After a collision with HRT driver Narain Karthikeyan in the 46th lap of the Malaysian Grand Prix, World Champion Sebastian Vettel has called the Indian an 'idiot'.

Red Bull driver Vettel reffered to Karthikeyan as 'one of those idiots you find driving around on normal roads'.

But the Indian hit back by saying that some leading drivers like to bully drivers who get overlapped. (Related read: Sahara Force India drivers back Vettel)

Vettel finished 11th in the race and his team Red Bull felt it was the responsibility of Karthikeyan to get out of the way as he was a lapped car.

Vettel, who is looking to seal only Formula One's third hat-trick of consecutive wins, is now sixth in the overall standings after the first two rounds. Fernando Alonso won Sunday's race.
