F1 » POLL: Is Schumacher’s penalty fair?


@Mark:"Rubens drove into a disappearing gap" Had he dived for the apex of a corner I'd agree but he didn't he went off the racing line on the straight. OK I concede that "swerve" was not the right word "squeeze" would have been better. Schumi made an error on the last turn giving RB a run at him. MS then left the door open and RB dived into the gap, so far this is good racing. Then MS "squeezed" RB against the pit wall. Had the move been next to a run off area or gravel trap I'd have called it a bit of hard racing but against the pit wall it is dangerous driving. Just imagine bits of two cars entering the pit lane at those speeds! That is why Schumi deserved a penalty.

@Mark: Have you ever been travelling parallel to someone and have them swerve in to you? You WILL move in to any available space to avoid being hit. So to suggest "Rubens is the one who decided to drive onto the pit exit" is just dumb. @Andrew: "I don't care for any counter arguements so Schumacher haters don't bother!" also dumb. I'm not a Schumi hater and I suspect most people who a offer reasoned critique aren't either. Personnally I think he is one of the best drivers of all time but he is only human and he is capable of errors of judgement.

Hands up all those who think RB went the wrong side of MS? Good, now keep them up if you think MS wouldn't have just run RB wide and off the track at turn one? If you still have your hand up you are deluding yourself. RB had a slower car, there was no way he could make the move work around the outside. MS was as culpable in this case as he was when he crashed into Hill, as culpable as Vettel was when he crashed into Webber, as culpable as Senna was when he crashed into Prost. They are all great drivers but they should expect a penalty when they do dangerous things. This is not about hating anyone it is about being reasonable. Lots of drivers race and overtake without resorting to terrorism.

I disagree with IanK, this not the act of a punch-drunk boxer but Schumi doing what he has always done i.e. try to force people off the track or crash. He should have been stripped of the the Championship when he blatantly crashed into Hill all those years ago. If that had happened then maybe some of the arrogance, which makes him beleive that moves like this are acceptable, would have been knocked out of him.

F1 » Brawn escapes ban.


I've been a member of the IAM for ten years, I've passed both car and bike tests and am also a qualified observer. I am tired of the lie perpetuated by lazy government policy. So let me state my position "speed in its self is not dangerous. Inappropriate speed is". There is absolutely no reason for the 70 limit, there will be times when 200 is safe and there will be times when 20 is not. Road safety is a complex issue and does not start and end at an arbitrary number. All that said I suspect that exceding the ton six months after "a similar incident" would have seen most offenders banned

BSB » Airwaves issues statement on Camier DSQ


Totally disagree with Paul's comment. Camier is significantly out performing his team mate, so that is down to the rider not the machine. He has just made a massive improvement this year. Ellison is a world class rider but he has been beaten by plenty of other riders this season. What has made the difference is the same thing as always makes the difference over a season, finishing in the points. The rest have had too many DNF's.

BSB » Brookes receives two race ban


The definition of reckless is "with defiant disregard for danger or consequences". No doubt the stewards will have looked at the telemetry data before making the decision. They certainly did following the Donnington incident. The fact that JB has had two bans issued for being reckless confirms that despite being quick he lacks the self control to wait and make a clean pass. Frustration got the better of him and he tried to make a lunge that was never on. The punishment for being "reckless" seems to fall well short of the crime
