SPIELBERG, Austria - Kimi Raikkonen had said Formula 1 needed more danger and excitement but his words came back to haunt him during Sunday's (June 21) 2015 Austrian GP.Even the phlegmatic Ferrari driver had to admit, in his own unshaken and unstirred manner, that the spectacular first-lap pile-up - yes, one car on top of the other - with Fernando Alonso's McLaren was "not ideal". It could have been extremely serious with TV images showing the McLaren scraping across the Ferrari and perilously close to Raikkonen's head and hands as the two cars hit a barrier one beneath the other. HORRIBLE ACCIDENTRaikkonen, who had lined up 14th on the grid, suffered a lot of wheelspin and lost control while accelerating out of turn two on Lap 1. Former Ferrari team mate Alonso, who had started on the back row after a 25-place grid penalty, was in the wrong place at the wrong time and the cars collided.Read: 2015 Austrian GP: Nico wins, cuts Lewis' leadAlonso told reporters after suffering a fourth successive retirement for the first time: "It was a very strange incident because he lost the car in fifth gear or something like that. It was quite scary." I could not see anything because with the seat position I was looking only at the sky and then I looked in the mirror and when I stopped I saw the car under my car." Watch a Vine of the crash here: Alonso tweeted about the incident after the race:From 19 to 14 in two corners ... ??, the rest ... Impossible to avoid the car of Kimi when lost control .. Glad to see we are all ok !! ??— Fernando Alonso (@alo_oficial) June 21, 2015His McLaren team mate Jenson Button said it seemed Raikkonen had "tried to get on the power, went one way, tried to correct and went the other way. A horrible accident."After the Canadian GP earlier in June 2015, 2007 champion Raikkonen - a big fan of the late James Hunt who raced in a much more dangerous era - said in a TV interview that the sport needed livening up. He said: "We must do something to make watching F1 more exciting, to appreciate the speed and to make it a little more dangerous. It is part of the game."Raikkonen said he didn't know what happened. "I had some wheelspin and then suddenly went left. So that's about it really. I don't know exactly why it happened or what caused it. It was at a pretty odd place.#Kimi7 'I don't know what happened, I had wheelspin and then I was out' #AustrianGP #redseason pic.twitter.com/jKT90ULUnX— Scuderia Ferrari (@ScuderiaFerrari) June 21, 2015The Finn added: "Racing is always dangerous and when things go wrong they usually go wrong in a bad way - that's what happened here."Stewards heard from both drivers after the race; no further action was taken.Stay with Wheels24 for the 2015 F1 season – fresh reports every day.
