“As a Galician, I will provide all the help and support possible to those affected by this disaster”
“Following the tragic accident on Wednesday 24th July 2013 involving the passenger train in Galicia, I and all within Lotus F1 Team would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of those affected and involved.”
Charlie Whiting has pointed a finger of criticism at Michael Schumacher and Mercedes in the wake of the recent Hungarian grand prix.
The Hungaroring race start was delayed when Schumacher, who at 43 is F1′s oldest active driver, lined up on the wrong grid slot. Marshals then had to push the great German’s Mercedes off the grid after he deliberately stopped the engine, forgetting that the race re-start procedure had been changed way back in 2005.
Reuters news agency described Michael Schumacher’s Hungarian grand prix as a “comedy of errors”.
And two of the errors were committed by the 43-year-old even before the race started. It has emerged in Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport that, after the formation lap, Schumacher parked his silver Mercedes in the wrong grid slot, which is what caused Charlie Whiting to abort the start.
