    #F1 News: Briatore joins Montezemolo in Schumacher criticism

    Dec.6 (GMM) Flavio Briatore has joined Luca di Montezemolo in criticising the way Michael Schumacher ended his formula one career recently in Brazil.

    Despite winning five consecutive titles for Ferrari in his ultra-successful first career, Schumacher - now driving for Mercedes - openly let his friend Sebastian Vettel overtake during the Interlagos finale.

    Schumacher's fellow German Vettel was fighting for the title against Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who ultimately lost the battle by 3 points.

    "I was expecting a slightly different final race on the part of Michael Schumacher", Ferrari president Montezemolo admitted last weekend.

    Italian Briatore, who was team boss when Schumacher won his first two titles with Benetton in the mid-90s, agrees with his fellow Italian Montezemolo.

    "The way he (Schumacher) behaved in Brazil was not good.

    "His preference was that Red Bull beats Ferrari," said Briatore.

    "The only one who helped Ferrari was Webber," he added, referring to Vettel's Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, who is in Briatore's management stable.
