A black flag is a bit of a harsh penalty, yes what he did was somewhat stupid, but as someone commented on another post yesterday, Schumacher left enough room for Barichello to get through, so even the 10 place grid penalty is a bit hard.

Again, another person posted yesterday about Vettel's 45 degree angle starts and forcing people towards the wall, yet nothing happens then.

Reading the Rules...... his driving was dangerous so should of been given the black and white diagonal flag as a warning.. had he of done it again then the Black flag!

Eitherway 10 place penelty was just about the only option left as it was so late in the race!

michael is known for being quite tough though isnt he, and rubens not for the first time is intimating that he was almost killed, no one actually hit the wall and if rubens thought it was that dangerouse he wouldnt have got past, everyones car was in one peice at the end.
Schumacher though should possibly get a sanction for being rather slow :)

The point was that having left the space, Michael proceed to squeeze and carry-on squeezing when Rubens was alongside.
A Martin Brudle said at the time about it - if Schumacher hadn't wanted Rubens there then he should have been hard up the wall.
