Ralf says Yamamoto crash a normal incident

Ralf Schumacher on Saturday refused to assign blame after he collided with Spyker’s Sakon Yamamoto during qualifying for the Japanese grand prix.

The German had gone quick enough to make it through to the second part of the 60-minute session at Fuji Speedway, but had to make his way back to the pits on the back of a marshals’ motorcycle after clumsily crashing into rookie Yamamoto while attempting to overtake.

“I thought he had seen me and was leaving space,” Schumacher told the German broadcaster Premiere. “These things can simply happen sometimes.

“It is not about who is to blame — these sorts of things are racing incidents.”
