Michael Schumacher has been given a reprimand for his accident with Sergio Perez during the Singapore Grand Prix.
The Mercedes driver clipped the back of Perez's Sauber when trying to pass the Mexican rookie on lap 28 of the race. Although Perez could continue in the race, he was forced to come into the pits to replace a punctured tire.
Schumacher said the accident, which forced him to retire, had been a misunderstanding with Perez, but the FIA stewards gave blamed the German for the incident.
"I think Michael was too optimistic with what he tried," said Perez. "It is a shame to have lost a place to Felipe (Massa) in the end, but the tires were finished and I couldn't defend anymore."
The FIA has also fined Team Lotus 10,000 euros for the unsafe release of Heikki Kovalainen into the path of race leader Sebastian Vettel during his final pit stop.
