Having had the chance to look at his move on Rubens Barrichello once again in the cold light of day, Michael Schumacher has admitted that Hungarian GP stewards were right to penalise him over his driving.
News reaches us this morning that’s about as surprising as the clocks going back, that we didn’t have a proper UK summer and that Fernando Alonso is driving for Ferrari next year: Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg are in at Williams.
It could only happen at Spa. Rain, sun and even some hail, all in the space of one day. A day that marked the return of competitive Formula One to our screens, and a day that marked a return to, well, business as usual.
Formula One’s ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone called an emergency meeting with the team principals minutes before qualifying for the Hungarian GP began on Saturday lunchtime. With television viewing figures waning – in some territories at least – and disappointing box office last time out at Hockenheim, Bernie is officially worried.
