Schumacher gets five places grid penalty for Monaco Grand Prix

Mercedes GP’s Michael Schumacher gets five places grid penalty on the starting grid for the Monaco GP after he crashed with Williams Bruno Senna in last race at Barcelona for Spanish grand prix.

Schumacher crashed with Senna, In Lap 14 Schumacher was trying to get close to Senna in the braking zone for Turn 1 and just run up the back of the Williams. Bruno has made it a few corners further but he gives up the ghost and climbs out of the car

Seven times world champion Schumacher still believed the accident had been Senna’s fault.

“I just took a minute to watch the video and if you look at the overhead shot you can see that he moves right to defend his inside position, but in the braking phase he moves back left right in front of me,” Schumacher said.

“Then I tried to avoid to the inside again, but too late. Then it’s done because that’s in the braking phase. Very frustrating. Very much annoyed about that.”
