Former Tyrrell and Williams ace Derek Daly admits that in hindsight, Michael Schumacher 'should have been given a drive-through penalty' for his aggressive defence against Lewis Hamilton in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza last weekend

Well Lewis has said its PURE DRIVING.... he didnt complain... Let it go! David Coultard wrote - I wrote a column after the Malaysian Grand Prix back in April, when Lewis was hit with a 20-second penalty post-race for weaving, saying that the FIA had set a dangerous precedent by punishing the Briton and must now apply the rule consistently. I fear that is not happening. The problem is that every race has a different set of stewards and a different drivers representative, so the interpretation of the rules is likely to be different too. I can well understand Lewis's frustration in Italy, although he bit his tongue admirably. The only way to be consistent would be to measure Michael's exact level of deviation from the racing line on Sunday compared with Lewis's in Malaysia.

'this style of driving is not what you want the future generation of drivers to perfect'

He couldn't be more wrong, this is EXACTLY what we want to see. What we saw was Lewis get a valuable lesson in race craft, although Lewis chose to bite the bottom lip during post race interviews, he was spitting feathers under his helmet.

What we don't want to see is drivers barging their way through, seeing gaps that don't exist and taking out other cars, drivers.

I and am sure most other fans enjoyed the skill displayed by Micheal, excellent, give us more of this.

Of course, Schumi tried to race, that's unacceptable nowadays. After the DRS and the KERS, I propose a track divided in two parts, to be sure we don't see a real battle anymore. When you're slower, you take the slow part of the track.

I have to admit I haven't heard of Derek Daly.

Was he any good ? Crash seem to tag 'ace' on to everyone when speaking of former GP drivers.

In future they'll be saying former GP ace Karthikeyan etc

Yeah exactly like the M6 motorway. So the drivers can listen to music in the meantime, just be careful to let the faster cars pass them without braking to late - could be dangerous!

I'm sick of this non sense. If you don't want to see guys racing each other for position, then go watch WRC, it's also fun, but in an other way.
