DC disappointed with Jense, drivers who make mistakes

David Coulthard is a little unhappy with friend Jenson Button in the wake of their coming together in Bahrain.

Button and Coulthard are known to park their motorhomes next to each other on race weekends, but the Scot was disappointed Button was critical of his on-track behavior. Button made his comments when questioned by the media, before the pair had a chance to talk things out.

Coulthard said that Button later phoned him, apologising and explaining that the crash was caused when he lost control of his own car.

DC may be a little touchy on the subject of accidents, as he has had his share this young season.

Coulthard said he was tired of answering questions about accidents because other drivers need to take responsibility for their hand in them.

Sutil gets some support

Force India technical guru Mike Gascoyne says despite early season struggles, Adrian Sutil has what it takes to succeed in Formula One, according to an interview with the Press Trust of India news agency.

Gascoyne blamed bad luck for much of the young driver’s problems.

Sutil’s problems have been further highlighted by the successes of veteran teammate Giancarlo Fisichella.

But Gascoyne believes Force India has the right combination of hungry youngsters (Sutil and Luizzi) and veteran experience (Fisichella).

There’s a new Schumacher on the block

Mick Schumacher is off and running on a karting career.

Already nicknamed in the German press as “Schumi III” (somehow we are counting Ralf as II), young Mick was entered under his mother’s maiden name to help shield him from the media. Also, Father Michael did not attend.

He finished tenth and eighth in two races at the Sils circuit, near Girona, Spain.

Schumi III is scheduled to participate in the next three rounds of the series. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
