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..?

BTW - remember last year's Monaco. Schumi taking positions RIGHTFULLY just before the end of the race, right after the end of the safety car period. This is driver from the old school, taking no prisoners.

Why? Because the 'other' English driver couldn't pass Schumey? ********. Apparently, the Hamster is a racer LOL.
Jenson keeps his mouth shut and does his talking on the track.

!I find it very interesting Lewis Hamilton is always a lightining rod for conversation! while the supposed greatest driver on the grid Sebastian "the finger" Vettel is barely talked about! It's like I've always thought Vettel brings nothing to the table! nobody wants to talk about him! HE'S BORING! NO EXCITEMENT! NO FANFARE! NO NOTHING!

Yes,he should have without question received a penalty! If you watched Rene Arnoux and Gilles Villneuve battling it out you know it's possible to have fair hard racing.

Blocking ain't racing. That's why they made the rule. That was blocking - by the definition in the rule, not just someone's opinion. Button knows it. Schumi knows it. Ross Brawn surely knows it. Everybody that saw it knows it. Just plain bush-league blocking. Characteristically Schumacher. If that's what you like, then you're a fan of his, or vice-versa. I would say in future races Schumi needs some of his own medicine -- but let's wait till he gets a car fast enough or actually drives fast enough to really challenge a car ahead that is meaningful. Hopefully what goes around comes around -- its the only thing guys like Schumi will ever understand. By the way, I try really hard to be a fan of Schumi's. He has many great abilities. He is a great one. But he should not be above the morals of the game. Not a sportsman - just a driver.

Schumacher did the right thing, Hamilton deserves a taste of real agressiveness and driving skills, he could have passed Schumacher, Button did. Is not like Senna never did wreckless things.... like crashing Prost few times.... who cares. By the way, awesome performance by Schumacher, with way less car he put up a great fight, that's what real drivers do.

The Schu.was just using tactics he had used all his career.He learnt them from Senna who the F.I.A. allowed to get away with anything ,including crashing his team mate to make sure he won.Not saying Senna wasnt brillant ,he was good enough to win without doing that & when the Schu. arrived they let him get away with anything he wanted, blame the F.I.A. & its governing people . Difficult to stop him now thats how he was allowed to drive. Cheers Brian.
