Daniil Kvyat: Kimi Raikkonen tried to kill me at Singapore Grand Prix

Daniil Kvyat believes Kimi Raikkonen "tried to kill him" at the Singapore Grand Prix, with the Russian and Finnish driver coming to blows towards the end of the race.

It was a battle for P12 in the last 10 or so laps of the race and Kvyat tried to pass Raikkonen but the Toro Rosso man made slight contact with the Alfa Romeo and wrecked the suspension on the Alfa.

Raikkonen was forced to retire early from the race, with Kvyat able to finish and record a P15 finish for the Red Bull sister side in Singapore.

"I was surprised because I made a move, I made it clear," Kvyat said to reporters after the race. "He moved under braking, a thing we discuss a lot. He was the one against it, actually. I'm surprised he did it.

"If you defend, then you defend. If you leave the door open, leave the door open."

Kvyat made the slightly outrageous claim that Raikkonen tried to "suicide himself" and also added: "He tried to kill me as well."
