Schumacher takes blame for clash with Petrov Michael Schumacher has accepted responsibility for his collision with Renault's Vitaly Petrov in the Turkish Grand Prix. The contact, which caused an unwanted early pit visit for the seven-time World Champion, occurred as the Russian attacked on the inside of Turn 12 at the end of the second lap.
“A lot of fighting and action today and that was probably the positive part of my race,” German Schumacher said later in the afternoon. “Obviously I am not very happy with my weekend, but I'm responsible myself for the result.
“The incident with Petrov kind of dictated my race. We were very close and I was surprised that we touched, but it was mostly my mistake. After making such an early stop, the way the race played out was given from there.
“What we can take away from this weekend in Turkey is that we have confirmed our good trend and we still have things to come to help us deliver more of our potential.”
