Bruno Senna said that Sebastian Vettel could not have seen him after the pair collided at the start of the Brazilian Grand Prix. Vettel was able to continue, finishing sixth to clinch his third world title, but Senna's afternoon ended there and then.

Bruno made a good start but Vettel was sluggish off the line and had dropped three places to seventh when his Red Bull came into contact with Senna's Williams.

"It was a great start and I had a good run on di Resta into Turn 4," Senna told the BBC. "Unfortunately Sebastian was on the outside and dived to the apex, and obviously didn't see me so hit me very hard.

"I spun and was hit by [Sergio] Perez. Not the end to the Brazilian Grand Prix I wanted, but sometimes in racing that happens."
