The Schumacher Saga

28 October 1997

Andrew Frankl
European Bureau Chief

360 degree turn by Schumacher today at a special press conference in Maranello, where he was discussing his comportment on the track during the European Grand Prix. Schumacher deliberately crashed into world champion Jacques Villeneuve's machine, in attempt to put Villeneuve out of the race and win the championship. Schumacher, who had earlier claimed innocence in the debacle said, "I never said I know everything about Formula One, and the case proved that I am a human being like everyone else, and it proves that I can mistakes like everyone else. That was one of my mistakes, I don't do many, but it was one. I could not give all the tifosi and the Ferrari team what they expected me to, something I am very sorry about."

This thing has more twists and turns than Dynasty and Dallas rolled into one.

There will be a special FIA hearing on November 11 to decide what penalty will be levied against Schumacher.
