Seven-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher, has been blasted by both his teammate and his brother, following Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

Although the TV director managed to miss the German's last lap move on the Brazilian, race fans around the world saw Ralf 'jig' violently to the left at the approach to the finish line as Michael appeared to edge towards his Toyota.

"Michael's crazy," Ralf told reporters after the race. "He should have switched on his brain before trying that move. One millimetre more and one of us could have been dead.

"Sometimes he's just not right in the head," he added.

Barrichello was equally unimpressed, and is understood to have had words with team boss Jean Todt.

"I had to move out of the way because if I hadn't we would have crashed and lost the three points we won," said the Brazilian. "I don't want to destabilise the team but I have spoken to Michael and boss Jean Todt."

As for Michael's reaction: "I'm a full-blooded racer," he told reporters. "That's why I'm here, not for a Sunday outing.

"I didn't think there was much risk involved in the move on Rubens or my brother."
