Pathetic - he was the only car out on track to entertain the rain soaked fans. Caused no problem whatsoever. Still, doubt he'll worry about 2,500 Euros

Say What!!

"the offence is not regarded as dangerous and it did not impede another competitor."...So forgetaboutit...

what about the 'no hurt, no foul rule?
2500 something.. What is that worth in real money.
Can Schumacher appeal this nonsense.
Jive, that it is

Badman, Jose

Are you guys actually kidding me?

Yes, not dangerous, noone was in the way... but rules are rules, and if these guys earn what they earn, in a sport where so much can go wrong in such a short space of time, you would expect that they can follow a few very simple rules. SPECIALLY IF HE'S SUCH A LEGEND... besides, its not like he would ever notice 2500 euro.

C WhIting admitting MS was incorrectly fined at Hungary last month..... Seems THEY don't even know their rules properly anymore...
They did not penalise other drivers for infringements, NR, SV for example, but the old boy gets a hiding.
Anyway, guess this is the new F1 nowadays...bring on Sunday with rain, but not too much as Webber might complain again.

With such atrocious conditions can you blame him, how can they even think of imposing a fine. The stewards are idiots, more jealousy. What is the purpose of making him an honoury citizen, so that they can make money out of him. *****s.
