Kimi Raikkonen believes drivers have become more "rude'" during his time in F1 as driving standards have evolved.
The Alfa Romeo driver made his debut for Sauber in 2001 before moving on to McLaren, Ferrari - where he became world champion in 2007 - and Lotus across his time in the sport.
Entering his third decade as an F1 driver, Raikkonen has seen vast changes to the sport in his time on the grid.
"It differs from race to race but I don't think there is that much difference," said the 39-year-old Finn.
"The big difference is they have made a rule for everything and there are so many rules that whatever you do, they can find a rule for it, good or bad that depends on what you have done."
Adding that driving approaches have changed in wheel-to-wheel combat, Raikkonen commented: "I think in the past when we started, it was probably a bit more fair games in a way with the drivers if you were overtaking.
"They wouldn't let you pass but it wasn't so rude with blocking then. We didn't need rules for this kind of thing but every sport has changed over 20 years. It is part of the game."
