He is responding to those questions the only right way. A great champion does not need to apologise for stuff like this. All the great champions did stuff like this. For example Senna and Prost. Alonso also has tricks similar to Michaels up his sleeve, that is why he is dominant in the pitbox of the Scuderia and Massa can probably look for another job. Without tricks like these F1 would be even more boring than it already is. I say let the guys race like mad and sometimes when there is no other option, a little bit of unfair play is fine to me.

Ducx , I have to disagree with you when you said all the great champions did stuff like that. Intentionally running people off the road may have started with people like Senna , but that doesn't make it right. Champions from the era before Senna , Prost etc. didn't do it.
Schumacher's intentional "crash" at Monaco would have gotten anyone else banned from the race. The FIA (Ferrari's Invisible Ally) played favorites.
Dirty driving as exhibited by people like Senna and Schumacher will always mar their accomplishments.

Admitting fault and apologising, allowing yourself and everyone else to truly move on, is not a weakness. Damon Hill admits that his Monza and Silverstone lunges on Schuey were impatient mistakes and looks the bigger man. But let's give Michael a few more years to grow up - it's not easy for a star like him to conform to what you and I would regard as normal ethics.

he didnt win the race, he didnt even win the championship, that race had other incidents that were more about racing, like alonso, raikkonen and webber trading fastest laps untill the latter two dropped out due to unreliabillity, even schumacher getting up to fifth at the finish. Surely its time to move on!
