Jolyon Palmer has put the blame entirely on Romain Grosjean for the first lap crash that took both drivers out of the Russian GP on lap 1.
Palmer's disastrous weekend in Russia went from bad to worse on Sunday when he failed to even reach Turn 4 on lap 1.
The Renault driver was tagged from Grosjean only to spin into the Haas' path, taking both out of the race.
Palmer believes the blame belongs entirely with the Frenchman.
Jolyon Palmer, Russian GP, Sunday: “I had a decent-enough start then heading down to Turn Two there was a Sauber on my outside then Romain made a very ambitious move over the kerbs on the inside from behind. There was no space for me to go because of the Sauber, so maybe Romain wasn’t aware of that, but he kept it in, hit me, then we were both out of the race. That was a shame for both of us really. I feel for my crew this weekend as they’ve worked so hard on the car, then we had such a short race. Now it’s reset, reload and look to Barcelona.”
"First corner, I had a Sauber on the outside and Grosjean on the kerb on the inside," he said.
"I don't know what he thought may happen because there was no gap.
"I couldn't give him any more space but he kept it in and then he hit me.
"Maybe he didn't realise there was a Sauber on my inside.
"I'm blaming him.
"When you are coming into a corner like that, you're coming in hot, and there's not any space, there's not much I can do.
"I couldn't turn away, I had the Sauber there."
