"I locked my wheels and hit Michael" - says Petrov - F1 Korean GP 2011 HD (slow motion)

Vitaly Petrov will be moved back five places on the grid for next race following his collision with Michael Schumacher in the Korean Grand Prix. The stewards judged Petrov was responsible for the collision with Schumacher. His penalty will take effect at the next race in India. Petrov apologised to Schumacher afterwards, saying: "It was not his fault, it was absolutely my fault -- once my wheels were locked there was nothing I could do about it. But that's racing and tomorrow is another day." He added: "I tried to defend my position from Fernando [Alonso] 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."
