Michael Schumacher penalized for Barrichello block

By on

After considering the overtaking move of Barrichello to Schumacher on lap 66 of the Hungarian GP, the stewards have found that Schumacher deliberately moved away from his line to block Barrichello, and hence receives a penalty.

"The Stewards, having received a report from the Race Director, have considered the following matter,
determine a breach of the regulations has been commited by the competitor named below and impose
the penalty referred to."

The penalty, as it would have been ineffective to change the Hungarian GP result, equals a 10 place grid drop at the drivers next event, which most likely will be the Belgian GP at Spa Francorchamps.
