Perhaps predictably, David Coulthard and Michael Schumacher held differing
opinions over responsibility for the collision which altered the course of
the Argentine GP.

Coulthard, who was leading at the time, was angry that the incident cost
him the chance of a race win, but resigned to the fact that (these things
happen). Schumacher, on the other hand, believed that, as Coulthard had run
wide, he had the right to go through on the inside without the Scot closing
the door.

The German escaped punishment for what many saw as a racing accident, and
was apparently welcomed into the McLaren team offices at the circuit by a
bearhug from Mercedes sporting director Norbert Haug. Schumacher and
Coulthard are then rumoured to have patched up their differences.
