Berger Criticises Barrichello

Tuesday April 3rd, 2001

Gerhard Berger has criticised Ferrari's Rubens Barrichello after his crash with German Ralf Schumacher put BMW-Williams out of a promising position in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

It is the second successive race that the pair have clashed, and it has put pressure on the Brazilian driver.

"It shouldn't happen," said Berger, who witnessed the disappointing end to a potentially successful race for Williams.

"It is clear Rubens made a mistake. Whatever he did, it is the third time he has lost the car in a similar accident like this and it is hurting."

After the event, Jaguar chief Niki Lauda called for Barrichello to be banned for two races following his apparent drop in driving standards since the start of the season.

The stewards in Brazil gave both Barrichello and Schumacher an official warning following the crash, but declared it a racing accident.

However, it is the second race in a row that Barrichello has hit Schumacher from behind to send him to the back of the field, and he also clipped Jordan's Heinz-Harald Frentzen into a spin at the season-opener in Australia.
