BARCELONA, Spain - Michael Schumacher has been given a five-place penalty for the 2012 Monaco F1 GP for crashing into Bruno Senna at the Sunday’s 2012 Spanish GP.
Schumacher could be heard branding Brazilian Senna an "idiot" on his team radio after the crash but race stewards found him to be at fault.


The showcase Monaco GP, which Schumacher has won five times, will be on May 27. Overtaking on the tight and twisty circuit is extremely difficult, putting a premium on grid position.

Schumacher drives for Mercedes, Senna of Williams; each had to retire after the crash on lap 13 of 66 at the Catalunya circuit.

Schumacher, 43, has failed to recapture past glory since coming out of retirement in 2010. He has picked up only two points from five races in 2012 while team mate Nico Rosberg won in China in April.

Williams' Venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado won the Spanish race to give his team its first victory since 2004.
