US GP 2002 - Schumacher repays Barrichello favour.

The Scuderia remained firmly in control, however, but just as it appeared that Schumacher would be celebrating his eleventh win of the year, the world champion performed what many will regard as a cynical piece of generosity. Whether this was truly the case, or whether the German had wanted, as he claimed, to set up a dead heat, will never be proved, but Barrichello seemed happy enough as he claimed not only a slightly bigger piece of silverware, but also a permanent hold on second place in the championship.

Perhaps now we will get to see a straight race between the pair as the season climaxes in Japan....?
