Aug.27 (GMM) The Greenpeace activist who disrupted the podium ceremony at Spa on Sunday has accused race officials of trying to hurt her.
Identified only as 23-year-old 'Julia F' by the German newspaper Bild, the activist was abseiling onto the podium after the Belgian grand prix while David Coulthard was interviewing winner Sebastian Vettel."We are a bit confused down here because the crowd is booing and cheering and booing and we don't understand why," Vettel told Coulthard.Coulthard responded: "We're not going to highlight why that is at the moment."Some had expected the FIA to launch an investigation or possibly penalise the race organiser, but so far the Jean Todt-led governing body has been silent.'Julia', however, has accused race organisers of heavy-handed tactics."They tried to cut my rope," Bild, revealing that Julia is from Switzerland, quoted her as saying."I would have fallen five metres. And in my arrest, they put a boot to my face," she added.
