Schumacher penalised for Alonso safety-car pass

User Rating: / 0
Mercedes GP's Michael Schumacher has been penalised by the Monte Carlo race stewards for his overtaking manoeuvre on Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in the dying moments of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Schumacher was handed a drive-through penalty, which is converted after the race into a 20-second time penalty, dropping him from sixth to 12th in the results.

Schumacher passed Alonso just as the safety car pulled in at the end of Lap 78. The FIA stewards, which included his old sparring partner Damon Hill, have deemed the German breached Article 40.13 of the Sporting Regulations, which states that "if the race ends whilst the safety car is deployed it will enter the pit lane at the end of the last lap and the cars will take the chequered flag as normal without overtaking."

Mercedes will appeal the stewards' decision and a date for that appeal will be set in due course by the FIA. Schumacher's demotion moves Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi, who had finished in 11th, into the points in tenth place.

F1 Feature - Second Time Around For Glock

Potenza tyres, but some will have had longer associations with our rubber than others. Timo Glock is one such driver.
After making his grand prix debut with the Bridgestone-shod Jordan team in 2004, Timo switched to the ChampCar World Series in '05 and the GP2 Series in '06 and '07, all of which use Bridgestone tyres. This will be his fifth consecutive year with Bridgestone, so we welcome the 25-year-old German back in F1 with Toyota.
