Some drivers will do anything to pin the blame on someone else, but not Vitaly, who’s held his hands up and admitted he made a mistake when he hit Michael Schumacher during the race yesterday in Korea.
Give us your verdict on the race?
Vitaly Petrov: I tried to defend my position from Fernando but I was in the braking zone on the dirty side of the track which meant I locked my wheels and hit Michael. I was focused on my battle with Fernando as there was potential for me to be ahead of him. We both braked too late as he missed the corner too. I apologised to Michael, it was not his fault, it was absolutely my fault – once my wheels were locked there was nothing I could do about it.
