Felipe Massa has told David Coulthard not to expect an apology from him as he believes he was not to blame for their crash in Australia.
Coulthard was critical of the Ferrari driver after making contact on lap 26, when Massa dived down the inside of the Scot.
The incident forced Coulthard out of the race and the Red Bull driver said Massa should apologise for it.
The Brazilian, however, said he had done nothing wrong.
"If he wants me to apologise then he should just go and watch the television instead. I was on the inside, I did nothing wrong," Massa told reporters.
Massa, who retired later on, admitted Ferrari had started the championship in the worst possible way.
"A horrible start to the season. We had engine problems which is unusual for a team like ours. We have to understand what happened and react immediately.
"I was fighting my way up the order all race long. At the first corner I lost control of the car while battling with Kovalainen and ended up off the track. Then I moved up the order and could have finished in the points.
"Our championship will have to start again in Malaysia. We know we have a good car we have to work to be able to use it as intended."
