Schumacher-Hamilton incident under investigation
12 May 2012 – Michael Schumacher is being investigated for an incident which took place in the final Barcelona practice session on Saturday morning. Both the Mercedes driver and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton have been talking to FIA race stewards.
On-board pictures captured by FOM television show Hamilton tackling the RACC Chicane as Schumacher, who had overshot Turn 13 and taken to the longer loop of the track, rejoined in front before slowing on the apex of Turn 15.
Possible sanctions for Schumacher include a reprimand, fine or grid penalty ahead of qualifying. The driver representative steward for this weekend is multiple Le Mans 24 Hour winner and ex Formula 1 test driver Tom Kristensen.
