Michael Schumacher has downplayed the controversy of his last visit to Monaco as an F1 driver - when he was deemed to have deliberately parked his car on the racing line in qualifying in order to prevent his title rival Fernando Alonso from beating him to pole position.
Ahead of this weekend's race, the Mercedes driver was asked: "They say that sorry is the hardest word. Is there any reason you are not able to say sorry for four years ago?"
Schumacher responded: "I think you can keep trying, absolutely, but as I said before I am not in 2006 any more."
Asked if he regretted the manoeuvre, Schumacher said: "It doesn't change things if we go back into it."
The German did admit the incident was a low point in his career - but blamed the media for that fact.
"You made it (a low point), yes," said Schumacher. "You journalists. Some of you guys ... let's look forward and not backwards."
Then asked if he would be willing to try a similar move in 2010, he told a reporter: "You're boring."
