“I wasn’t concentrating fully, basically," admitted the seven-time Champion, who last won in Germany for Ferrari in 2006. “I was making (in-car setup) changes and was on the radio when I touched the white line. It is what it is, so you have to make the most of the situation and we’re probably going to be qualifying in the wet tomorrow as well."
Earlier in the day, Schumacher said that an announcement on his future should be expected in October. Although this may be the case, most insiders believe a conclusion will be reached by the team and driver during the summer break after Hungary.
