Schumacher fined for Japan incident

Michael Schumacher has once again been fined by race stewards for breaching Formula One's rules.

The German, no stranger to penalties from organisers over his long career, was fined €5 000for making a late entry into the pits during the second practice session for the Japanese Grand Prix on Friday according to the Autosport web site.

Schumacher dived into the pits after a bollard that marks the start of the pit lane, which is a breach of F1's sporting regulations. After investigation by the stewards, it was decided that because the incident took place in practice that there would not be more serious action taken against him - so he was fined €5 000.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton, Bruno Senna, Sébastien Buemi and Heikki Kovalainen were all investigated for possible yellow flag infringements during practice, but after analysis of data from each driver's car, the stewards discovered that all the drivers had slowed down for the incident so no action was taken against them.
