Barrichello slams Schumacher after Hungary pass
(GMM)  Stewards are investigating Michael Schumacher's defense of tenth position during the Hungarian grand prix.

Williams' Rubens Barrichello did manage to muscle past his former Ferrari teammate, but only after narrowly avoiding the pitwall.

"Horrible!" the Brazilian veteran screamed on the radio.  "That should be a black flag.

"It was the most dangerous maneuver against me I have ever known," added the Brazilian on BBC television.

Seven time world champion Schumacher responded: "We know certain drivers have certain views, and there's Rubens.

"I was making it obvious to him to go on the other side.  There was more room there, but he chose not to.

"It got a bit tight.  We didn't touch; I guess I left enough room," added the 41-year-old.

Barrichello hit back: "He's taking something from the past into the present -- his view is that I'm a big crier.  What do the public think?"

Former Super Aguri racer Anthony Davidson said the safety implications of the incident sent "shivers down my body".

"I know commentators should remain unbiased but any driver knows how dangerous that was.  It could have been lethal," he said on BBC radio.

Reigning world champion Jenson Button commented: "It's pretty hard to say it's someone else's fault if you put him into the pitwall."
