The Stewards of the Meeting received a report from the Race Director which stated that the driver of car number 4 (Ralf Schumacher) caused an avoidable collision (contrary to Article 53 of the 2003 FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations*) and the drivers of car numbers 2, 4 and 6 (Rubens Barrichello, Ralf Schumacher and Kimi Räikkönen) and respective Team Managers were summoned.
Having heard the explanation of each driver and having seen the different camera views of the incident, the Stewards conclude that Ralf Schumacher began to move to his left to obtain a better racing line for the first corner. Ralf Schumacher admitted to paying no attention to the position of the other cars during this manoeuvre. The Stewards note that it is absolutely clear that Ralf Schumacher's car made contact with car number 2 (Rubens Barrichello), which in turn made contact with car number 6 (Kimi Räikkönen). Both drivers of cars number 2 and 6 were caught in a set of circumstances over which they had no control.
The Stewards of the Meeting impose on the driver of car number 4 (Ralf Schumacher) a drop of ten grid positions at the driver's next race, in accordance with Article 55(c) of the 2003 FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations.
