Brawn apologises to Schumacher for failure
11 June 2012 – Ross Brawn has apologised to Michael Schumacher for yet another mechanical problem in Canada on Sunday. From a total of seven races so far this year, the Mercedes driver has retired on four occasions with technical issues.
“He suffered a hydraulic issue which left his DRS jammed open and it was not possible to fix it in race conditions,” explains Team Principal Brawn. “I can only apologise to Michael for a further technical failure.”
Schumacher’s only mistake of 2012 to date was the collision which took both himself and Bruno Senna out of the Spanish Grand Prix; the consequent penalty meant the German could not start from pole position in Monaco, instead dropping to sixth.
