You could be right kwj200, but did you also hear that to cut costs Mike Ashley was getting rid of all the ground stewards at SJP. He was getting in a load of sheepdogs to look after to Mags supporters .... Baaa baaa baaa.

Or relegation? Failure to prevent teams scoring in the last 10 minutes for 3 years? Loss of the crowd? Playing in the championship. there are quite a few key indicators!

Och! just another bit o'f bluster from wee ginger. This will only serve to distract for a few weeks of more poor results with Strachan saying "The laddies need time tae settle" and they'll find out actually how useless Scottish rejects are....

A very bad day when politics destroyed one of the best races on the F1 calender, i hope f1 American fans can forgive this pathetic display by the FIA.

I do not think in the same way as you. Mclaren look really strong in the first and second practice. I also went to the recent Silverstone test and Mclaren were so much better than the other teams overall. I personally feel that David Coulthard has a much better chance than Button!

What pathetic ignorance.
Sure, the race was a bust, but the reasons for this were all European!
I am an old fart, and this would never have happened in the days of Moss, Hawthorn, Collinds, Brooks, Fangio, Ascari etc etc...let alone the prewar greats. Who do we have to compare with them: Button!.

As an American open wheel race fan................yes, there are still a few open fans that like F-1 inspite of the Indy debacle. I have to say that F-1 as a racing body is like has a great history which it's living off and tarnishing. Mind you we have seen a number of guys from F-1 come to Cart/Champ or IRL and do reasonably well, but I can't say they have been more exciting or better at driving than some guy who started driving here locally. I think it's time to shake up F-1 like we did with USAC in the 70's, CART in 90's and so on.....it make no sense for those two clowns that run F-1 to have been for so long

The 2006 calender is there, but the link hasn't been changed so when you click it just brings you to the old one. If you change the URL slightly you'll find the '06 races though.

Personally I like 'em both, but for vastly different reasons.
F1 = the top technology, the most exciting circuits, and soap operas that are more compelling than anything on TV!! Plus, NOTHING sounds like an F1 engine.
NASCAR = Competition, competition, competition. MANY more than 2 or three drivers have a chance to win a given race. F1 is vitually devoid of competition. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alonso win every race remaining this year. The only lead change at Silverstone happened because of a pit stop....YAWN

Why would he cheat? He's just coming into the championship in terms of points and he knows that if he did cheat he would be punished. Unfortunately for him, he made a mistake and has not only been punished unfairly but branded a cheat. One rule for him and another for everyone else it seems...

If you had actually read my post earlier, you would see that I said I changed my mind AFTER seeing the "incident" from different angles, but BEFORE (to my knowledge" the Williams' protest. Mind you, you now admit it was Williams who made the protest, and not Alonso, so I guess there is hope for you yet.
But when you say that there is "no point in talking about what happened years ago", I get confused. You try to say that M$ has never cheated, yet are prepared to "forget" his, and his teams', breaches of the rules to suit your own view. You've never realistically disputed one of the points I brought up about Schumi's career, have you? You must then be admitting that it is ok for M$ to "bend the rules" as long as he wins. And you call me a sheep.....

Since when did the stewards relegate MS to the pit lane? Ferarri and Michael elected to do that after changing the engine on an undamaged car. Not the Stewards. This was to avoid any possible first-cornar carnage, as he would have been able to cruise past any incident whilst in the pit lane exit. Slight difference from the Stewards dumping him there for parking the car, isn't it.
Hopefully Michael will soon retire, then the incidences of rule breaking will drop. Of course, they don't cheat. They've only had to redesign their front wing TWICE this year so far after the FIA judged it was flexing too much. And we know that they, like the Renault, still have flexing wings but they aren't cheating, are they...

Next the anit-schumi brigade will be saying Michael had something to do with the death of Eduoard Michelin. It really seems suspicious he died this weekend. Michael must have had something to do with it, after all he's been accused of everything else.

Ahhh... I'm "Renault Biased"... That is despite the fact I also posted comments in another thread, of the Renault "Flexi-Wing" and the dubious tactics of Fisi under blue flags yesterday.. Yeah, my view is clouded.
Everything I have said about Schumi is easily found with a minimum of trouble, if you want to look. History speaks for itself. And, yet again, somebody whose judgment is so clouded accuses me of supporting a team which, in not only my view, are running an "illegal" car to which I turn a blind eye to.... Yeah, right.
Please be so kind as to tell me when I said I was "for" Renault, or any other proof of it instead of just assuming I MUST like Flab because my views do not agree with you. But since Flab was in charge of "Benetton" when we had the Jos Verstappen incident, why would I say that they had "done something wrong" if it was purely bias against M$? Why would I "love" the team run by the same person and team which caused that incident, and also has come out with some nice "u-turns" over the 2008 regulations he agreed to? But it is funny how certain things, easily proven, continue to revolve around one driver and the team he is involved in since he left Jordan to go to Benetton, isn't it? But I guess, in your view, all that means I am a Renault F1 (ex Benetton F1) fan, despite my comments on them this year.....

Great idea..... Take your perfect Ferarri team with you, and the rest of the F1 world can get on with enjoying races without the dubious tactics and sportsmanship of a certain team being involved... F1 will live without Ferarri, easily.
See you in two years!!

At Indy 2005, also remember that only ONE team refused to allow the modifications to the track which would have allowed a full race to happen. Yes, it was a disgrace that the weekend went the way it did, but a sensible compromise could have been reached. Let's face it, they did at Imola one year, and also at Estoril as well in the past, when the circuit had "temporary chicanes" added to the track to slow drivers down because of "safety issues" at both tracks. Strangely enough, Michael and his team agreed to these changes for the similar reasons involved in the "Indy Farce", but refused at Indy. What was the difference this time? The idea that "Michelin teams should slow down before the final turn" was the most ludicrous and dangerous suggestion I have heard in my life. A McLaren could have lapped a Minardi, then had to brake hard to keep within the "speed limit". We know where the Minardi would have gone, don't we. "Michelin cars would have to drive through pit lane, at pit lane limited speeds" is utter tosh, as that would also have been "altering the track configuration" which was the reason quoted for not putting in chicanes. If the pit lane was to be used in that manner, then ALL cars should have been forced to drive through it and not just the Michelin teams. How would that have looked "as a spectacle", and how would your beloved Michael have reacted if he would have had a drive-through penalty on every lap whilst his rivals were allowed to stay on track and go at full speed? I think you would be shouting VERY loudly about that. I was stunned and horrified at the time (in a bar in Chicago, you should have been there to hear the yelling and laughing over the farce) because the FIA suggestions in this case were ridiculous by offering 3 teams an instant and unfair advantage and/or extremely dangerous. Of course, they could have let BOTH tyre companies supply new tyres for the event, and allowed the event to go ahead SAFELY. Michelin made a BIG mistake there, they admitted it and paid for it. That is also a fact, so please don't say that people weren't punished over the Indy fiasco just because you don't agree with the decisions.
Also, as said earlier it would have been ILLEGAL under Indiana State Law for the Michelin teams to have even started the race under these conditions. The safety of the drivers, public, etc could NOT be guaranteed because of the tyre issue and no agreement could be reached by the teams because ONE team decided they would vote against any sensible idea which could have allowed the race to run. That meant that it was impossible for the Michelin cars to run in safe conditions, illegal in Indiana, and was why the FIA HAD to clear the teams of the "charges" brought against them by Max. Oh, and why didn't Bernie do a bit more at the time?

The mass damper system should be allowed - it's a technological advance and not actually against the rules that were in place at the time. A ruling has subsequently been made to get it taken off Renault.
I can't remember the last time a Ferrari technological advance was subsequently banned - they are allowed almost anything and Eccleston tells the other teams they must catch up. When someone else gets something first, it's banned until Ferrari develop their own system.
Just wait until Ferrari have it - it will meraculously be allowed and the FIA will make out it's because Renault wanted to use it.
If you want to talk about taking titles off drivers, I'd take every one of Scum-makkers that he got at Ferrari because he only won them due to drastic rule changes every season until Williams Renault were dragged down below Ferrari.
It stinks, and YES - you're right Mr (Ferrari) Eccleston and his cronies should go - the sport should be run by a panel from the competing teams who should have one vote each on all decisions.
See how long Ferrari last then !!

Schumacher didnt cry in Monaco because he very well knew he was guilty.
Alonso was beating his own times trying to cross the line when he supposedly blocked Massa.
He is absolutely right. F1 can't be considered a sport anymore. Rules are being bent in the interest of Ferrari and Michael as a goodbye gift. Now THAT is pathetic.
