But have you cheated in motorsport? Have you EVER broken the speed limit and not been caught? And, since you have been clamped, I guess you "parked your car in a dangerous or obstructive position unnecessarily". Isn't that what Schumi did? Four parking tickets mean the same. My one ticket was for being 2 minutes late returning to the car in a local authority car park. A mistake, and wrong, but there was no obstruction to traffic. I swallowed it and paid the fine for what I did. It never happened again, I learned my lesson. You obviously haven't since you have been nailed on parking 5 times.
But since you think that rules are there to be broken, for you, I guess you think that the FIA Sporting and Technical Regulations do not apply either, unless it is to a team/driver you like.

So that explains why Schumi wasn't able to turn out of a corner at half of the speed he normally goes through there without damaging the car in any way and having enough space to turn the wheel enough to drive out of there? Now who is regretting any accusations here, he CHEATED.

Alonso and Renault didn't complain, BTW... It was Williams-Cosworth....
Ok, they were blue, but there was no "yellow and blue" or cigarette ads on the cars of the team who actually made the complaint against Schumacher and Ferarri....

"That incident last Saturday is an accident". Wrong. Video and telemetary showed otherwise. There was no reason for the hard braking, no reason for the "parking" almost 2 feet from the barrier without hitting it and no reason for the car to stall as he could have driven out of there. The onboard and overhead shots show his trajectory and actions clearly. So if you are trying to say that "the greatest driver who ever lived" could make a mistake that Takuma Sato wouldn't make at a corner where, in the same position/circumstances, (I think) nobody else has "crashed" (ok, people have hit the barrier on the way into Rascasse, but NOBODY has ever lost it like that in dry conditions) is dubious to say the least. If he had actually hit the barrier, it would have been credible. But at that speed, after locking up the fronts and THEN "regaining" enough control to drive straight at the barrier before not nearly putting enough right lock on to actually attempt to go around the second part of Rascasse, it must be classed as something incredibly stupid for a man of his calibre or as cheating (deliberately causing an incident) in the same way he parked the car in Austria 2000 to try and bring out a red flag after he tangled with Zonta so he could get into the spare car. In Austria, it didn't work and he had to retire. He tried it again on Saturday and was rightfully penalised. Massa at Mirabeau was an accident, Nico rosberg at Anthony Noghes was an accident, Yuji Ide in an F1 car was an accident. Michael stopped the car on the track deliberately, for no legitimate reason whatsoever. The telemetery showed no reason for braking so hard, at a slower speed than on his fastest laps and then "losing control" in the manner he claimed he did. He parked it. And anyway, he managed to go around the same corner far more often, and at faster speeds, without he slightest hint of a problem or "mistake", didn't he? A bit strange... As I say, if he had actually damaged the nose in some way, it would have looked credible.

If he had actually bent the front wing, then we would have laughed at him instead of calling him a cheat. Even I could have managed that at that speed, never mind someone of that "ability"

Big difference between a parking ticket and (another) blatant attempt to cause a red flag situation which would benefit his own situation (Look at his actions at the start of the race in Austria in 2000 and you'll see what I mean.)

"But since you think that rules are there to be broken, for you, I guess you think that the FIA Sporting and Technical Regulations do not apply either, unless it is to a team/driver you DON'T like"
But of course, that slight faux pas is enough proof that I am blinded and can't see beyond "Renault"

Sporting Regulations.... Try reading them.... It's called bringing the sport into disrepute, a BIG area.
This year, there is a difference in how the Stewards work. There is someone there for every race. That person is not an "amateur", but a paid member of the FIA. His job is to be seen to be impartial. A breach of the rules was found to happen, and the person responsible was punished. That is fair. Previous years have seen different things happen, a big difference. The FIA have not exactly been angels over recent years (Hey, Bridgestone runners use different compounds of tyres on each rear wheel, which is illegal, but only test "front left" and "rear right", why not all FOUR tyres from Williams and Ferarri? A bit strange) and in fact forced Ferarri to change their front wing design twice this year because they didn't think it was "100% legal".... Now, other teams have been busted far more over "dubious" things like that. Think BAR fuel tank, think McLaren with "two" brake pedals (illegal steering assistance, despite it not acting on the steering), think Michelin tyres becoming "illegal" half way through the season. Now think of the various infractions which have been carried out by certain teams over the years, and how often the same names crop up. And you say he and his team don't cheat? What was your interpretation of the "barge board" incident? They admitted it did bend 15mm when the rules stated a maximum of 10mm? So how legal was it?
I guess "winning a championship by barging people off the track" is ok by you as well, provided Michael does it. And you say that I am biased.

There is no way of telling what will happen next year. Remember that Michelin are pulling out so people will have fun swapping to Bridgestone tyres. That will drop most of any advantage Renault, Macca, etc have for next year. But expect fireworks from the McLaren team, normally when the engine block explodes.
Oh, and considering I go to the French, British, German GP's (both races in Germany, that is) every year, as well as Spa when it is on, for the past 5 years, then I think your comment about "never experienced a F1 race" is a *little* bit of a wild accusation. Oh, and please tell me which team I have said I supported? What a shame, you can't do that because your OWN "blinkered opinions" mean you only have the ability to ASSUME you know what people think and know, and not to actually listen to and see certain things around you. Take the "ferarri tinted" glasses off, you'll see the world in it's true perspective then.

Which driver has been involved in controversies from the FIRST (of SEVEN, since you like making that point) of his championships? Which driver has admitted, and been penalised, for CHEATING. Please prove that none of his "titles" have never been tainted by the actions of himself or his team over the years, and I mean EVERY year he won the title. Show me ONE year where M$ and his team were NOT involved in some controversy, but got away with it.
If you look at various things that have happened, there has not been a single WDC-winning year when M$ or the team he was driving with did NOT do something which was in breach of the Technical or Sporting regulations. That is cheating, no matter how you look at it. No other driver and team has been involved in so many controversies as M$ and the teams he has been with in the history of F1. No other driver and team has had so many titles "questioned" because of their tactics and "definition of the rules". No other driver has gotten away with deliberately causing an incident in the way that one certain driver has. Ask Rubens, he was put on the grass at Indy so he wouldn't be able to pass Michael. Anyone else would have been penalised for that. And, as I say, we'll leave the "illegal team orders" out of this. Poor Massa, spending the rest of his short F1 career as a lapdog being told how to drive so he makes his teammate look good. That is illegal, by the way, please check the Sporting Regulations if you are not sure. But it's Michael, so it's ok, in your view.
This time he was caught, get used to it.
