Bernoldi: Don't Blame Me

Sunday May 27th, 2001

Brazilian Enrique Bernoldi defended his actions on Sunday after holding up McLaren title contender David Coulthard in Sunday's Monaco Formula One Grand Prix.

"I feel sorry for him, he's a very nice guy," the Arrows driver told reporters. "But that's racing, I am here to race as well. My team was happy with me."

Bernoldi, in his first Formula One season, finished ninth in the race after keeping Coulthard behind him for half the race in the twisting streets of the Mediterranean principality. Coulthard had qualified on pole but was forced to start from the rear of the grid after stalling on the warm-up.

"They (Arrows) said 'you have position, concentrate on your racing, keep going, push'," said Bernoldi, admitting that Coulthard had been faster than him all weekend.

"I didn't do anything unfair to him. I'm on the track to improve myself and maybe one day I'll be in his position. I was clean and driving my race."
