Sebastian Vettel has apologised for swearing live on air following Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver managed to claim third place at the Yas Marina Circuit despite starting the race from the pit lane due to a penalty.

The German clearly let his emotions get the better of him in a post-race interview when he accidently let slip an expletive.

Vettel said: "I'm terribly sorry for using the wrong word on the podium and I'm sorry if I have offended anyone who was watching.

"In the heat of the moment, I didn't use the right words and I apologise. I'll do it better next time."

Race winner Kimi Raikkonen also swore in his post-race interview, prompting the FIA to send a gentle reminder to all teams warning drivers to mind their language when speaking to the media.
