Romain Grosjean cemented his reputation as the least popular man on the F1 grid when he caused yet another crash at the Japanese Grand Prix.
Mark Webber called Grosjean "the first-lap nutcase" and race stewards gave him a 10-second stop-and-go penalty following his ninth crash of the season.
The Lotus driver ran into Red Bull's Webber at the opening corner, forcing him off the track.
The Australian said: "I haven’t seen what happened at the start but the guys confirmed that it was the first-lap nutcase again Grosjean."
He added: "Maybe he needs another holiday."
Grosjean served a one-race ban last month and was fined £40,000 for swerving into Lewis Hamilton at the start of the Belgian Grand Prix, taking out championship leader Fernando Alonso in the process.
He has now been involved in nine accidents this season, and accepted responsibility for Sunday's crash, saying: "There was quite a big speed difference between me and Mark as I came into the first corner. It caught me by surprise and we collided. It was a stupid mistake."
McLaren driver Jenson Button had harsh words at Suzuka, saying: "Is it for Formula One to do something about it? Or should he just take a good look at himself and sort his s*** out, because that what he needs to do.
"We saw it a lot in (feeder series) GP2 with him. He'd either win or crash and it seems he has the same philosophy and he needs to change his views."
Webber's Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said: "The most important thing when you make a mistake is to learn from it, and I think the most disappointing thing is that it is a repeat incident and proved extremely costly for Mark, as it did for Hamilton and Alonso at Spa, and numerous other victims earlier in the year."
Former F1 driver and Sky commentator Martin Brundle added: "These things don't happen by coincidence.
"His judgment is clearly wrong in close combat and I don't know what he can do about it because it's such an instinctive thing down there."
Ex-F1 star Johnny Herbert joined the chorus of disapproval, saying: "The team should tell him bye-bye."
