Weber: No Schumacher Family Feud

Willi Weber, the manager of Michael and Ralf Schumacher, said on Friday that the two siblings are still friends and never had a family feud after their near collision in the Monaco Grand Prix

Weber: No Schumacher Family Feud

The media speculation grew in the build-up to the European Grand Prix in Germany this weekend and Weber suggested the fight had been blown out of all proportion.

Weber told Autosport-Atlas: "There was never a big fight like they say. At the race track they are competitors and they drive for their teams, they need to score points and that is absolutely normal.

"I am in-between, of course, but I need to speak with both of them, this is his point, that is the other point, and at the end of the day they can see things differently but they must fight each other (on the track).

"At the end of the day it was just a lot of things the newspapers printed and I think everything has stopped about this situation now. Michael said what he thinks, and at the end of the day it is finished."

Rumours in the Nurburgring paddock had suggested the Schumacher brothers' father Rolf was heading to the circuit this weekend to sort out the family feud but Weber insisted that was not the case.

"No, no, no," he laughed. "What would he have to sort out? We are racing and if you find a slower car you try to overtake it and that is part of the game. It is over now."
