Woulda thought he would move over though, I mean, Ive seen lesser blocks get grid penalties. But schuey was daft. I recall Alonso break testing Doornbos at hungary 06 basically parking on the apex of T1 and getting a penalty, so Schuey is lucky.

Schumacher was coming into turn 10 miles behind Lewis, there's no way Lewis Hamilton would actually start thinking about giving room! Plus the fact that Michael carried way to much speed into that hairpin made it look closer.

As for parking on the apex, well, quite a shame for a driver of his standard. I guess he really is quite a frustrated man...

He, thanks! :thumbsup:

I had the chance to watch it full today morning and it's pretty interesting. My favourite scenes: Mercedes' wall shaking heads when they get to watch the replay of Schumacher's accident, the Ferrari guys commenting Schumacher's accident, Ferrari mechanics arguing quite loud after a pit stop and the Ferrari guys cheering Räikkönen on the podium when he got his trophy.
Did I just name 3 Ferrari anecdotes? :blink:

All that debris flying on the air and some hitting to Vettel's helmet. What if it hits to throat? Can't be safe at that speed.
