Ralf Schumacher has accused his world champion brother Michael of a "crazy" move which could have killed both of them.

Ralf Schumacher has accused his world champion brother Michael of a "crazy" move which could have killed both of them.

Michael pulled alongside his brother's Toyota at high speed on the run to the chequered flag in the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, just missing out on taking sixth spot by just 0.046sec.

But Ralf, who was forced to jink away from the Ferrari for fear of an accident, was angry that his brother attempted to squeeze between him and the concrete wall at such high speeds.

He told German television: "He's crazy. He should have switched on his brain before he tried a move like that. Another millimetre and one of us could have been dead."

Michael's disappointing result was compounded by criticism from another driver close to him, team-mate Rubens Barrichello adding to Ralf's complaint.

Barrichello was angry that Schumacher passed him for seventh on the last lap, also accusing him of risking an accident.
