2012 F1 crash kings named

2012-07-17 10:52

SO MANY POINTS LOST: Pastor Maldonado, pictured above above colliding with Sergio Perez at Silverstone, has lost 45 points to crashes in the season so far.

Rookies Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado are the crash kings of 2012, according to a report by Auto Motor und Sport.

The publication reports that Lotus' Grosjean would be ahead of Nico Rosberg in the Drivers' championship had he kept his nose clean.

During the Australian GP he crashed into Williams' Maldonado, in Malaysia, he hit Mercedes' Michael Schumacher. In Spain he bashed Sergio Perez and in Monaco and Britain he came to bumps on the first laps.

Journalist Michael Schmidt said: "In total, Grosjean could have 18 more points in his account."

POINTS DEFICIT

Maldonado's botched points deficit is even higher. In Melbourne he crashed and in Malaysia he hit Williams team mate Bruno Senna. In Monaco he collided with Pedro de la Rosa, in Valencia with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and in Silverstone with Sergio Perez.

Perez commented on Maldonado: "He has no respect for other drivers. I don't know why the stewards don't take more action against him. We are risking our lives out there and if they don't do something he will hurt someone."

Auto Motor und Sport said Maldonado's crashing has cost him 45 points, many more than he has collected so far in 2012.
