So who's going to defend the cheating german this time?

When you don't have the skill OR the car, then just running someone into the concrete wall is OK is it?

A lifetime ban for putting lives at risk.

Post race interviews:

Jordan: 'so Rubens - was that the most dangerous thing that has EVER happened to you in racing?'
Barrichello: '.... well..... yes it was.'


Schumaker: I wanted Rubens to go round the other side where there was plenty of room.......

SOB. Goes all the way back to Damon, is he still untouchable.

And for nothing at all, he was well and truly beaten.

10 place grid slot penalty for Spa......

Ridiculous behavior, I could understand it better if there was something at stake for him. But apart from ego I can't think what.....

2010 Porsche 997 GT3

It was frankly ridiculous, but lets face it - Mr Schumacher has been getting up to this sort of thing for so long, despite being spectacularly dangerous it is barely even newsworthy... Dont know

Possibly a meaningless fine, but I really don't see anything overly consequential happening over this. Which is wrong, but sadly that is F1. If Lewis had done it to Alonso when Mosley was still in charge it would have been some kind of ban of course, but the man with the chin is teflon coated...

So with his qualifying skills, he'll be starting in the car-park?

FFS no race ban for CLEARLY putting lives at risk? Who is in charge of this circus?

Oh yes - Jean Todt, Schumakers mate. wack

Perfect illustration of why Schumi is a flawed racer. He was very good at taking a fast car, putting it on pole and then effectively time trialling it away to build up a lead that keeps him clear of everyone else. Put him in a wheel to wheel situation though, he can't take the pressure and does the sort of thing we saw today. And of course can't accept that he has done anything wrong.

Senna was exactly the same and he was useless Floor

As I said before, the difference is that Senna placed his car as if NO-ONE was there; he would never give way. You had to make adjustments to get around him, or you crashed.

Schumaker (as demonstrated graphically yesterday and IIRC just two GP ago as well) makes an extra move pushing his opponents up against concrete.

And Senna didn't have any mates running FIA when he was racing - rather the opposite in fact.

Clearly just a racing incident.

The accident happened as he drove seven passengers along Main Road, Ferguslie, and went to overtake another bus.

The two vehicles had been heading in the same direction on August 16 last year, having followed each other around a roundabout. When the bus in front pulled in to pick up a passenger, Senna misjudged his next move completely and collided with the rear of the stationary vehicle, damaging them both.


I bet Senna's bus wasn't wearing the latest N-rated tyres.

Exception that proves the rule. Very Happy

Schumaker does it (to a greater or lesser degree) every GP.

Maybe that's why he is a multiple F1 champion? Rubens should know MS well by now and should have gone to the left instead of putting himself in the Germans "gunsight"

MS gives nobody room to pass......maybe Rubins just forgot Dont know

If you know a certain dog bites why would you put your hand near it's mouth??
