Button claims Schumacher’s move at Spanish Grand Prix was complete bull

London, May 10 (ANI): Formula One champion Jenson Button has criticized ex-champion Michael Schumacher for allegedly using unfair means while taking him on in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

“I didn’t really know where Michael was on the outside of me. He turned in and, if I hadn’t backed out of it, we would have crashed. He didn’t really give me a lot of room. There you go. You’d think with his experience he would know. It wasn’t really the right move,” the Daily Express quoted Button, as saying.

Button was less than impressed by that initial move, although it showed that Schumacher is returning to his old style and should not be underestimated now that he has a Mercedes built to his liking.

“It’s tough to overtake here and Michael’s not silly. He knows where to put his car on a track like this and you’re not going to overtake him. He was putting it on the inside, and I couldn’t pass on the outside because he just pushed me wide every time. He didn’t make a mistake, so it was very frustrating,” Button said.

Veteran German racer Mark Webber emerged the winner. (ANI)
