Pit lane speeding and the lost Monaco podiumRubens Barrichello
has denied what he describes as 'lies' about why he sped in pit lane last Sunday.
The veteran Brazilian was heading for his first podium for Honda at Monaco until Stewards ruled that he complete a drive-through
But Barrichello rejected claims that he either got 'confused' about what buttons on his steering wheel he had already pushed, or simply forgot to activate the speed limiter.
"There was no confusion," he said, "but my car was oversteering really badly and I did not know that I had accidentally touched the button for the limiter."
"Then I pressed it again, thinking I was pressing it for the first time and (the speed limiter) turned off.
You know what happened next!"
Although the podium - or even his eventual fourth place - is not a true reflection of Honda's pace at present, Barrichello insisted that the Brackley based team is now starting to turn around its troubling form.
"The important thing is that we are on the right track," Barrichello said. "We are getting better at every race."
