Michael Schumacher was happy with himself after minimising his two-second qualifying penalty to start tomorrow's race from eleventh while championship rival Alonso will start from fifteenth. However, he seemed to suggest that Alonso played a part in his penalty and that it might not have been entirely fair play.
"It was unrealistic for us to get into the top ten, although I wasn't far off," Schumacher said. "It's okay and I guess worked out pretty well. Obviously you approach the session differently knowing you have the penalty but it worked out okay."
On his penalty Schumacher said, "If you watch the pictures you can see what I did and understand why I did it and Fernando was certainly involved in that incident."
When asked whether he thought Alonso slowed down on purpose so that Schumacher had to pass him under red flags in practice the German replied, "You said that I didn't."
