Schu penalty not hard enough, says Whitmarsh

Stewards did not hand down a hard enough penalty for Michael Schumacher’s Rascasse moment at Monaco.

That’s the belief of McLaren ‘F1 CEO’ Martin Whitmarsh, who said the wrongdoing was so bad that it should have prevented the Ferrari driver from taking home even a single point for his world championship tally.

On the other hand, he said: ”(Giancarlo) Fisichella was much too harshly punished for a much less serious action.

”I think that exclusion (from the race) would have been justified (for Schumacher), but fortunately I am not a steward!”
