We had a gearbox failure – Schumacher



Mercedes GP’s Michael Schumacher has said about his retirement that reason gearbox problem at the Hungaroring Grand Prix, with the seven time world champion having to park his car on Lap 28 after losing a gear.

“We had a gearbox failure, we obviously need to understand details of the failure,” Schumacher told BBC Sport. “After spinning and continuing, shifting up through the higher gears, we lost a gear.

“I obviously wanted to keep my position against Felipe and pushed hard, but in order to avoid contact I had to put the car into a spin. The contact would have been okay, I would have just lost a couple of seconds.”
