While i totally agree that at some stage somebody has to say NO NO MORE it comes from a manufacturer who also has some over zealous drivers, Cristien Abt being the main protaganist. He, over the years has proberly been involed in more incidents than any other racer and to my very limited knowledge has never been reprimanded by his team or the stewards. I hope that this action be it far too late will change the atitudes of All concerned. Ps The stewards should take a look at the way the WTCC has marshelled itself this season to see how it should be done where nobody is bigger than the racing re 1st race winner Alain Menu was blacked flagged in the next race for an infingement.

The race was a total disgrace for Mercedes. I agree to Audi's decision to pull their drivers. I think it is the obligation for both Mercedes, Audi and DTM to redefine the rules. It is obvious that unfair racing will take place unless the punishment for doing so is greater than the advantage. A good start would be to cancel the result of the race so nobody gets any points OR if Mercedes is concerned about fair driving they should come up with a suggestion that would remove the unfair advantage they got from their 'team effort'.

Which means that by your arguement Jamie Green gets taken away a win that he earnt fairly and squirly and Di Resta's 3rd place again punching above his weight. Racing is racing stuff like this happens, Audi should have raced on and then submitted their protest after the race. Because what they did cost them points and potentially 3 titles.


I accept your arguement but I do not agree with it.

Mercedes driving was unfair and if you actually listen to the commentators, these cars are'nt big fat solid cars, they're very fragile and Norbert Haug knew what was happening but he didnt bother doing anythin he just sat on his fat butt watching it happen in front of him.
