Michael Schumacher: through the thorns - to the points

May 29 2006

On the eve of the Monte Carlo was the seventh stage of World Championship racing "Formula 1" - "The Monaco Grand Prix." The outcome of the race is largely influenced by scandal even during Saturday's qualification.

In trouble hit a seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. According to some pilots and the organizers of the race, in qualifying the "red baron" acted like a "real crook."

During the races at the time, Schumacher showed the best result, but suddenly his car stopped across the road, impeding other drivers. Himself referred to the pilot wheel lock as a result of failure of inhibition, but the judges regarded such an action as an attempt to sabotage the qualification and disqualification pilot. In the end, Schumacher started from last position of the grid.

In response, a team of Ferrari was forced to drastically change the race strategy: replace the engines of cars and reduce the number of dozarpavok.

Despite the obstacles, Schumacher still managed to finish fifth and score two points.

Overall standings:

1. Alonso - 64 points. 2. M. Schumacher - 43. 3-4. Fisichella and Raikkonen - by 27 points. 5. Montoya - 23. 6. Weight - 20. 7. Button - 16. 8. Barrichello - 13. 14-15. R. Schumacher and Heidfeld - 8. 11. Kultard - 7. 12-13. Webber, Villeneuve - 6. 14. Rosberg - 4. 15. Wedge - 1.
