More bad news for Schumi

Sunday 13-May-2012 17:57

Michael Schumacher's weekend in Spain went from bad to worse on Sunday afternoon as he was slapped with a grid penalty following his incident with Bruno Senna.

Both drivers crashed out of the Spanish Grand Prix on lap 14 after Schumacher drove into the back of Senna's Williams.

Schumacher, who called Senna an "idiot" over the radio, refused to accept blame for the incident, telling Sky Sports F1 HD: "I want the stewards to clarify what happened. He moved to the right, but he shouldn't move back in the braking phase to the left that sharply."

Senna, meanwhile, felt it was just one of those incidents.

"At the end of the day, I was not expecting him to hit me, I thought he was going to dive for the inside," he told the BBC.

The stewards though have found Schumacher was the guilty party and handed him a five-place grid penalty for the Monaco GP.
