Michael Schumacher has acknowledged that his controversial impeding manoeuvre against former teammate Rubens Barrichello at the Hungarian GP was too hard and has apologised to the driver.
Schumacher said that after reviewing the incident he has to agree with the stewards that the move was too hard. The champion says he had no intention of endangering the Williams driver and that he was “sorry”.
“After watching the moment again, I must say the stewards were right in their assessment: the manoeuvre against Rubens was too dangerous. I wanted to make it hard for him to pass me but I didn't want to endanger him. If he has this feeling I am sorry, this was not my intention.”
