Schumacher takes blame for crash
Seven-time drivers world champion Michael Schumacher blamed himself yesterday after he walked away unhurt from a heavy crash in second free practice for the German Grand Prix.
Schumacher said he was not concentrating properly in difficult, wet and treacherous conditions and lost control of his Mercedes car when it ran over a white line on the circuit.
It was a major shock for the crowd in the stadium section of the Hockenheim circuit with four minutes remaining in a session topped by Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado. His car suffered heavy damage to all four corners and the practice session was red-flagged and halted.
