Alonso was racing on last Monaco lap – Schumacher

Michael Schumacher admits he does not believe Fernando Alonso when the Spaniard says he knew overtaking was not allowed at the last corner of the recent Monaco grand prix.

Due to the safety car rules confusion in the wake of the recent controversy, the FIA has vowed to clear up the regulations.

But when asked in Turkey if he still thinks Schumacher should have been demoted out of the points for the pass in Monaco, Alonso said: “Yes.

“Because it’s in the rules.  For me it’s clear.  When the safety car is on the last lap it’s not possible to overtake.”

But former Ferrari driver Schumacher, who now drives for Mercedes, suggested in Istanbul that Alonso might not be telling the truth.

“He almost hit the wall in attempting to defend his position!” the German is quoted as saying by Auto Hebdo.
