Schumachers Give Brake Lights Their Approval

Thursday June 21st, 2001

World champion Michael Schumacher and brother Ralf believe the introduction of brake lights on all Formula One cars could be beneficial for the sport.

All the Formula One teams that tested at the Silverstone circuit last week used the new device, and both Schumachers have given his approval to the new system.

"There are no reasons at all why we should not have brake lights," Michael said. "It's pretty simple to have them and it certainly can help in critical circumstances."

His brother Ralf added: "Everybody had the brake lights, I must say it was good. It looked a bit strange to begin with but you get used to it pretty quick. It is an advantage, definitely.

"It tells you if some other driver decides to brake a bit earlier and gives you an additional chance to react. It's a good idea. We should have policemen on the circuit as well to direct you."
