Michael Schumacher’s collision with Bruno Senna at Barcelona has cost him a grid penalty for the Monaco Grand Prix.

The seven-time world champion collided with the rear of the Williams driver after the pair were involved in a slipstreaming duel down the front straight on lap 13 of yesterday’s race.

Both drivers were ruled out of the race after the clash.

After the incident, the stewards deemed that the Mercedes driver was to blame and will cop a five place grid penalty on the starting grid at Monaco.

The Monaco Grand Prix will be held on May 27.
