When is an apology not an apology?

 
…When it’s made by Michael Schumacher.

“Schumacher ‘sorry’ for blocking Barrichello in Hungary”

The headline read

Oh no he wasn’t, as was revealed by what he actually said:

“Michael Schumacher has said he is ‘sorry’ if Rubens Barrichello felt he had been put in danger by his blocking manoeuvre at the Hungarian Grand Prix.”

This roughly translates as Schumacher saying to Barrichello:

“Hey Rubens, I am sorry if for some unknown reason you have reached the strange conclusion that my sudden, late move to the right, pushing you within a few millimetres of hitting a concrete wall at over 150 miles an hour, and nearly leaving your wife without a husband and your two young sons without a father, was in any way dangerous.”

Michael, you are a leader in your sport – when you do something wrong, say sorry with sincerity, or just be quiet.

Action – when you do something wrong, say sorry with sincerity, or just be quiet.
