F1 » F1 2011 POLL: Should Schumacher have received a penalty?

It's time for you to let us know what you thought about the Michael Schumacher/Lewis Hamilton scrap at Monza last weekend. Did 'Schumi' go too far, or did Lewis simply get a dose of his own medicine..?

So weaving from one side of the track to another is 'driving on the edge' now?? LOL!

Let the voters do the talking.Schumi was correct.He has been voted driver of the race AGAIN for the 2nd week running with James Allan,taking a massive 2200 votes so far.He is over 1000 votes above the winner.Now tell me Schumi was wrong.

I dont think he should have got a penalty - It was on the edge, but fair - Racing at it's best. A bit like Senna, if you wanna pass MS you gotta grow some balls and do it properly or dont try at all.

I could have voted for three of them. Totally gave Lewis a dose of his own medicine (by which I mean, "GOOD, that kind of racing is awesome," as opposed to, "AND IT SERVES YOU RIGHT, LEWIS, YOU NASTY MAN!"), it was totally on edge but fair (and isn't that exactly how we should want it to be?), and he was lucky to escape penalty (but that's more shock about the stewards getting it right than it is about Schumacher's driving, which was phenomenal.) Went with on edge but fair.

One of the best moments of the season so far. To quote another German on the grid, that's what I'm talking about, baby. More like this, plz!

Difficult to say. Technically, I don't think he did anything wrong but he took advantage of the rule i.e. he found a loophole. Maybe a bit on the unsporting side but having said that Button found a way past so Lewis could have too theoretically. On the edge but that's how racing should be.

There is no blocking allowed in F1. He blocked numerous times. So technically he skated a penalty. There is no loophole. And Button got past them both at the same time because MS has blocking lewis and didn't have time to block Button or he would have. Button was many seconds behind lewis and ms and caught up to them due to MS driving like a sot. There was NO on the edge driving. Only slow entry and moving side to side(weaving) Hence why Ross got on the horn and told MS to quit jerking around and get out of the way.

Merc is said to be mad at the old man as well. He held up a Merc engine for sh its and giggles. The Ferrari would have been left off the podium. Merc values it's number one team.(McL)

Mickey's blocking is just so typical of his style. He obviously has a huge belief in the strength and safety of the contemporary F1 chassis and no fear of placing others in danger. Senna was a brilliant blocker and did it so much better than the clumsy style of Mickey!
