F1 » Angry Schumi rejects claims he doesn't race fair


He has been back in the F1 spotlight for barely a month, but already Mercedes Grand Prix 2010 signing Michael Schumacher has found himself on the receiving end of some rather uncomfortable questions...

Michael Schumacher is the ONLY DRIVER in F1 to have all his points removed at the end of season. He rammed Jaques and Damon off the track. Correct? He parked at Monaco Correct? He beckoned members of the crowd onto a potentially lethal race circuit to push him back on Correct?

Shumacher is an awesome talent.
Rutheless to the core, this makes him a winner.

Yet he has cheated, and this has ruined his brilliant skill. Very sad. I hate to inform you, but Fernando has already beaten Schumacher and will do it again in 2010 with Hamilton up there too.

He won't have it like in the past. Too many camera phones and helicopters showing his trademark off the grid SWOOP to one side. Dangerous.

Last season most people were saying how it was a breath of fresh air to see a driver like Kobayashi forcefully over take. I see no difference between his and Schumacher's style of racing.
No matter what he does there will be some who just do not like him.

Another thing I hated about Shoemaker was the lack of anything close to support for his, supposed, team mates. When Rubens stood on the anchors at the end of a race to give the result to Micheal I thoght thats typical of the Ferrari/Shumacher mentallity. During the 1999 season he was injured but still, when he returned before the end of the season, he didn't support Eddie Irvine and took points from him and stopped him from taking the title.

It's called collusion Alan D and JET..
How can an independent governing body of a sport, justify a special relationship with one team that allows that organisation to not only have a pile more money than its rivals, and also grants it the right to veto rule changes? I can imagine that Max Mosley, being the clever soul and (spectacular) survivor that he is, will have 412 reasons why it is all completely right and why anyone who asks the question is obviously not intellectually capable of anything other than sewing mail bags, but for me it is like the International Olympic Committee allowing Russia to stop the 100m sprint if their team does not happen to have any good sprinters at that race.

Kelly: "He beckoned members of the crowd onto a potentially lethal race circuit to push him back on Correct?"

Which race was that at? I remember there was a race where he asked marshals (not fans) to push him back on which a driver is entitled to do. The rule is that if a driver is in a dangerous position then the marshals have to clear the obstacle in the quickest and safest way possible. That means either push the driver back onto the circuit or move them to a safe place off circuit. Once in a safe place, the driver can rejoin the race if he restarts the engine without external assistance (and isn't the wrong side of the barriers obviously).

Barrichello's status at Ferrari was not the same as Schumachers. Had Rubens disobeyed team orders he would have been finished at Ferrari. Do you think Todt or Brawn would have gotten rid of Michael if he disobeyed team orders? Schumacher's position was unique, he could have disobeyed and gotten away with it. He chose not to.

This kind of crap is just what Alonso needed. Put all the cheating and lying and team play on MS and all will forget he's on the grid. If FA keeps a clean nose he will probably win the WDC. Again over MS.

Regardless of the ethics of the journalism, all questioning of the 'quality' of his achievements will be eating at him - not as a racer, don't think it's affecting him in that respect, but as a human being. He'll know that admiration for his achievements will be forever tempered by his 'unsporting behaviour', wheras for example Damon Hill's achievements will be enhanced by his. And ther is a huge difference. my MS-loving friends, between nerfing off your rival deliberately (MS on DH, Aistralian GP) and through being out of your depth (DH on MS, British GP)
