Schumacher 'not good enough' - Brawn
Ross Brawn has admitted that both Michael Schumacher and the Mercedes team have 'not done a good enough job' so far this season.
With five races of the season gone, the seven-time world champion has picked up just two points after two tenth-place finishes - at the Malaysian and Bahrain Grands Prix - while he has retired in the other three races. A hydraulics failure was the problem while he was in third in the season opener in Australia, before an incorrectly-fitted wheel cost him a chance in China - when he was second in the early stages. The German then crashed into the back of Bruno Senna's Williams in Spain in the last grand prix - and has subsequently been punished with a five-place grid penalty at Monaco this weekend. By contrast, team-mate Nico Rosberg has amassed 41 points in the campaign to date, helped by his victory in China, and he lies in seventh place in the standings, 20 points behind the leaders. "We - and that includes Michael - have not done a good enough job collectively in the first five races," Brawn said. "We look at things collectively, that's the situation with Michael. It's not the driver or team has made a mistake. "The issue of Michael scoring only two points is not just down to Michael. It's down to some of the technical problems we've had with the car."
