Grosjean: Schumacher hit me

Romain Grosjean has blamed Michael Schumacher for their Malaysian GP accident, saying it was the Mercedes driver who hit him.

Fighting over third place at the start of the grand prix, Grosjean and Schumacher made contract at Turn Four, which put both drivers into a spin.

"I was there, I was careful and unfortunately I think it was Schumacher came to hit me and in Turn Four I spun," he told Reuters.

"From that point the race was really bad."

But it quickly went from bad to worse, as with the rain intensifying Grosjean spun off the track on lap 3 and was beached in the gravel.

"The rain came too hard, Kimi (Raikkonen) was pitting so we couldn't put both cars into the pit and I had to stay out with inters but it was just... I couldn't drive it," he said.

"There was no visibility. It was very difficult. (I'm) very disappointed because I think we could have had a good result here."
