F1 EUROPE >> Schumacher/Petrov contact provides minor excitement! In the immediate aftermath of the European Grand Prix there was minor controversy surrounding Red Bull when Dr Helmut Marko attributed Mark Webber’s P3 finish to driver error, while race engineer Ciaron Pilbeam said traffic was to blame. But Webber swept any drama under the carpet when he accepted full responsibility for the loss in position. “I was worried about Fernando coming underneath me around the stops and it was not really known how the medium tyre would perform on the out lap,” Webber said after the race. “For sure, it is not as good as the soft but is it better than an old soft? That was the risk I decided to take. I lost out. Fernando stayed out for a few more laps and also I came out behind a little bit of traffic so my fault we missed second today. “I’m disappointed myself,” he added. “At the end I probably pitted a bit too early on the last one, because the warning on the option was pretty quick in terms of if you needed to pit, so I was a bit worried about Fernando coming underneath us.” Webber takes the blame for losing second place 27
