Don't Blame Me for Retirements, Says Ralf

Sunday June 10th, 2001

The Williams drivers are not to blame for the team's poor record of finishing races this season, Ralf Schumacher said on Saturday.

The German, younger brother of Ferrari's triple world champion Michael, qualified for Sunday's Canadian Formula One Grand Prix alongside his sibling on the front row of the grid. But, despite winning the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola, Ralf has finished only twice in seven races this year.

His Colombian teammate Juan Pablo Montoya has managed to complete a race just once, when he finished second in Spain, in his debut season. Team boss Frank Williams said this week that he was unhappy with his team's overall performance but hopeful of a good result in Montreal.

"It's down to him to change it," replied Ralf at a news conference on Saturday. "So far I've made one mistake and Juan has made one and the rest have been caused by technical (problems) or outside people.

"We are unhappy and we try the best we can but there isn't just one factor which needs changing."
