To Richard: Obviously you don't know how brakes work properly. Can you emagine what ****Up would happen if every driver's brakes lockup at every corner. People like you should pay tax on the oxygen you use.

cobus. it appears that it is schumi who doesnt know how brakes work!

but as you claim that i dont know how brakes work, perhaps you could enlighten me?

i always understood that if you put your foot on the brake pedal, then all four wheels would be retarded. press too hard, and you will lock up all four wheels. that is what happened with schumi, and he admitted it.

maybe you can advise schumi how to use them, before the next race, so he doesnt run into anyone else.

by the way, i dont breath oxygen, i breath petrolfumes!

To Richard: Happy to hear you breath petrolfumes too. Sometimes my delivery vehicle also locks it's brakes, but only the rears, most of the times it is braking fine and my mechanic also struggles to find out why it only locks sometimes. It obviously works with preasure but why only locks sometimes? I only compare the process and not the vehicles. Have you ever thought of if there were no cars infront of Michael, if he would have made the corner? If you brake and the wheels lock, you might aswell leave the brakes for if you start sliding it is no stopping, esspecially at high speeds. I personally think that his car was not going to make it through the corner, with no cars infront of him that is why he appologized to Verne for he did not do it on purpose. These cars can stop on a dime if you see how quick they deccellerate. Attend a race and you'll see. Enjoy the fumes, I do.

Given the problem with the brakes in practice it is not out of the question that he had another problem during the race. There also seemed to be an excessive amount of marbles at this race. Even if it was driver error it was just that, an error. While the result may be the same errors are not as bad as reckless driving.

Richard - out of curiosity do you think that Vettel should have been penalized when he took out Button at Spa a few years ago? Both were cases of a driver losing control under braking.

Alot of fools on here seem to have it in for the GREATEST F1 driver that has ever done it 91 race wins, stats don't klie and 63 poles stats don't lie. People seem to be saying his old his this but schumii has always been a aggressive driver so we have alot of new f1 fans or haters jumping on the his old bandwagon he had alot crashes in his prime he goes for it but to blame it on age is a joke

Actually matey there are lies damn lies and then statisticts. This has never been more true than people like yourself using them to potray Shumacher as the all time great F1 driver. In reality he won row of mundane titles in the best car with the best tyres a rear gunner and the FIA being ferrari international assistance. Dont make me laugh buddy.

cobus. your transit is a bit different to an f1 car. try putting a few bags of cement in the rear and see the difference. you cannot alter the balance of brakes, but schumi was able to. if you brake too hard in your transit, you will lock up and not slow down as quickly. that is what schumi did.
and for your info, i have raced saloons and tested (but not raced) open wheelers

JOHNSMITH, MS himself has always said that F1 history means nothing to him, so we can only go on the statistics of the last race. Competitors 24. competitors who managed to avoid doing a fellow competition up the chuff at a massive closing speed, 23. Competitors who failed to avoid same, 1. THAT'S why we are talking about it, and a thousand F1 titles in the past don't stop it being a potentially life-threatening incident, just ask Riccardo Paletti.
