Michael Schumacher, Mercedes, Barcelona, 2012

Michael Schumacher in the cockpit of his Mercedes W03 during the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix weekend.

Schumacher had a difficult weekend, beginning with a reprimand in practice when he was found to have cut the track in order to hold up Lewis Hamilton, who he felt had blocked him earlier in the lap.

In the race Schumacher ran into the back of Bruno Senna, and was given a five-place grid penalty for the next race for causing a collision.
