Barrichello: No personal apology from Schumacher

Rubens Barrichello yet to receive an apology in person from Michael Schumacher
Rubens Barrichello has revealed that he is yet to receive an apology in person for what happened with Michael Schumacher at the Hungaroring.

Schumacher came under fire for pushing Barrichello towards the pitwall in the closing stages in Hungary as the pair battled for tenth place, with the Williams driver being lucky to avoid contact with the wall as his former team-mate attempted to defend his position.

Having initially appeared unrepentant over what happened, Schumacher apologised to Barrichello a day later through his personal website but the Brazilian says he has yet to here from his former team-mate personally.

"I did not receive a phone call," Barrichello is quoted as telling Brazilian reporters by ESPN. "I have no regrets. Now we move on. Yes, I have my opinion, but I am quiet. Our time together [at Ferrari] cannot have any hostility on the track because you can end up hurting each other."

Think he'll be waiting a long time for that one.... Schumi's apology was clearly more for the press and keeping his @ss in the F1 officials good books.
