It's a lot enough, as there was no contact. It was dangerous, but as there was no accident, 10 place grid penalty is enough imo. Spectacular shot those pictures iceman!

And 33 years of combined F1 experience.

Poor driving by Michael, 10 place grid drop is the best penalty.

Mercedes and Renault.

Ross Brawn to Schumi : "Okay so, Rubens is faster than you. Can you confirm that you understood that message?"

No, Nando suffered an engine failure in Asia, either Malaysia or China. When he battled with Button, remember? :O

Honestly, the move from Barrichello on Schumacher was the best as neither drivers didn't want to yield! Hamilton's one was great too though! :drool:

he was classified because he stopped 2 lap from the end. (He completed more than 90% of the race, and was classified 13th)

Pretty hard racing there but history books will still remember one of the drivers as a 7 x world champion and the other as the lackey of the first driver during 5 of those championships. And Rubens is also a whiner too. Sometimes you just have to know when to stop, just in case the madman in front of you will not. Seriously Rubens quit whining: "Yes it was. It was the most dangerous thing I’ve ever been through and I’m sorry for that.” Hey Rubens, how was Imola 1994 ? Was taking off at the chicane and flying into the tire wall less dangerous ?

Technically Michael made the one move which is allowed by the regulations. He should not be penalized. Was it morally right ? No. But it was not technically wrong - and yet again the sporting regulations are disregarded just as they were last week. It does not say anywhere in the sporting regs. where the limit of racing is. Schumacher is not the only one to dangerously rather another competitor this year - Webber did it and ended in a flight... Team mates did it: Vettel drove into Webber while Alonso cut onto the grass and the chicane and merged in front of Massa on the pitlane access road. If that dangerous driving went unpunished...why is Michael punished ?

Unfortunately I feel the driver steward idea is one of the worst. It is a means for former drivers an opportunity to vent their frustrations during the years of racing and have a worrying lack of consistency in their decisions. This whole summer driver stewards made some poor decisions and none more poor than when HH Frentzen acted, a few races back.

I think the move was okay. What did Rubens expect? That Michael would open up the door for him? It's racing. Michael squeezed him extremely, I have to say. But they did not touch and Rubens got through. Great move though, I have to say. So I think it was okay. Michael defended hard, but left him just about the space of a Williams. Maybe a warning would do, but a ten place drop is too harsh I think.
