Schumacher could lose podium through penalty
24 June 2012 – Michael Schumacher’s Valencia podium finish is under threat, having been called to see the stewards following Sunday afternoon’s highly dramatic European Grand Prix.
The Mercedes driver passed numerous rivals as he charged through the field following his second pit-stop; having just overhauled Nico Hülkenberg, the seven-time World Champion seized third spot when Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado collided on Lap 55.
Both Schumacher and a representative of Mercedes will talk to the stewards – including ex driver Mika Salo – at 5:20pm local time (BST +1) for ‘failing to slow for yellow flags’ when using DRS.
