    Did Schumacher deliberately lose control to ensure he got pole?

    Well the stewards have decided he is guilty and should start last. So if he is guilty he is also guilty of lying and bringing the sport into disrepute. Any other driver would be given a 2-3 race ban - just look back over the years. Putting him at the back of the grid is not much more than a slap on the wrist as he will almost certainly finish in the points. For me it's a bad decision by the stewards because it doesn't show Schumacher and Ferrari that the sport is brave enough to end their antics

    • seems I may have been right then. and as I said before he isn't averse to using these kind of tactics to try and influence results, but to be fair other drivers have used them as well i.e the late great Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost if I remember rightly clinched titles by nugding each other off the track, but today schumi come unstuck because I don't beleive he would have been stripped of pole unless the stewards were absolutely certainthat he did it deliberately.

      • Maybe the stewards came to their decision because of peer pressure. Any how, if it was deemed to be an accident, people would still call him a cheat. How many times have judges, referees etc got it wrong. I still go with it was an accident. What driver would park his car on the bend of a race track. It could have gone horribly wrong and he could have been killed. What would he gain out of it. One race out of how many has he competed, and he chooses this one. I find it hard to believe. No point in trying to convince anyone because as always, people like to shoot the top sportsmen down. Maybe it is us who are the bad sportsmen, not Schumi.
