In terms of fairness, it is a fine line. Should Vettel have been handed a similar penalty when he forced Alonso towards the wall in Germany? Or when he drove into his team-mate in Turkey. It seems that the stewards only apply their interpretation of the rules when the "victim" complains. A bit of consistency would be more appropriate. But I think this incident is more significant in terms of the message it sends to the other drivers - Schumacher is a master tactician - "overtake me at your peril...I won't hand it to you".
