Seven time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher will lose ten spots from his qualifying position in next 2012 race in Suzuka, Japan based upon his actions in this collision with Bruno Senna in Singapore. “I just went straight on the brakes very hard, locked up everything and tried to brake as hard as possible but the accident wasn’t avoidable any more.” Schumacher said following the incident.

F1: Singapore Grand Prix 2012 : Preview

Singapore – That time of year again for Formula One’s only entirely night race on it’s calendar. Welcome back to The Lion City ladies and gentlemen, and to the Marina Bay Street Circuit which has hosted the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix since 2008. The past four races have proven to be quite the spectacle with 2010 edition showcasing four drivers within ten points of each other in the F1 Drivers’ Championship. German Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull-Renault) won that race which ended up propelling him to the top of the board for that said championship by season’s end. This 2012 addition finds a different scenario entering the race with Spaniard Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) leading the field by a 37 point margin. (Remember that a win gives a driver 25 points while top ten finishers all receive a lesser amount based on final position.)
