Kubica escapes pit-pass penalty ROBERT Kubica received a formal reprimand after the grand prix having pulled a dangerous pass on Adrian Sutil. The pair were racing down the straight leading to the final turn, Kubica on the inside, when the Pole drove into the pits. Sutil braked for the chicane only for the Renault to whiz past him just as he was about to turn. It could have been a very nasty collision. "I was racing him on my in- lap," said Robert, "and we were side-by-side before the first corner. I was on the right, so I backed off and pulled behind him to take my line for the pits, but he braked very early and very hard. I had to go around him to avoid causing an accident." The stewards looked at the incident and Kubica escaped a penalty. He finished in seventh place, earning six points. F1 CANADA >> Beware the kick of the donkey! "You have to treat the back of Schumacher's car like the back of a donkey," warned BBC commentator Martin Brundle during the race as Schumacher's Mercedes dislodged the front wing of Felipe Massa's Ferrari. "I think Schumacher has driven appallingly today." It was, indeed, another weekend Michael will want to forget having been knocked out in Q2 and lined up on the grid in 13th. In the race he had several skirmishes across the grass and had collisions with three cars -- Robert Kubica, Felipe Massa and Tonio Liuzzi. He squeezed Kubica when he came out of the pits on lap 14, moved across on Massa on lap 62 as the pair came up to the final chicane, and unsuccessfully tried to block Liuzzi on the last lap as he struggled on his tyres. In all instances, the German made contact with his rival. "I had a puncture on the front right tyre after my first pit stop, after I got together with Kubica, and that obviously decided my race," explained Michael. "From there, I was stuck in traffic and there was nothing more to do because today our weapons were not very sharp. "Towards the end, I was trying as hard as I could to defend myself but it was only possible to a certain degree and my tyres were just ruined after having done more than half the race distance." 33
