    Official Formula One Thread - Season 2006

    Cant believe there was no Formula 1 thread other than the Fantasy F1 one...Well better late than never...

    So anyway...

    Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

    They strip Michael of pole position??? I mean c'mon...Though everybody knows I am a huge Michael supporter,still anyone in their right state of mind would never,and I mean never think Schumi would do anything like that deliberately...spinning off at Monaco and park in the middle of the track...

    Why? First of all Schumi puts safety and well-being ahead of anything else.Why would he put himself and other drivers on the line in harm's way that way?And why would he stall his car when he wanted to better his time by doing another flying lap? I am not even mentioning the fact he is the greatest competitor all through those years when he fought for the championship 3 years in a row to get 5 in a row thereafter and doesn't need to that...or even think of doing that.

    Second of all,the margin of error for this mistake probably would have been less than 0.5 meters, probably closer to 0.25 (even less?),so Schumacher had only a 25 cm window at the corner to brake exactly at that point of time to 'stage an accident' and park in the middle of the road (in agreement with a bbc guy)...even Schumi's not that perfect to pull off something like that.

    I am ready to get blasted...knowing most of you here are Anti-Schumi and you wouldn't even read into Schumi's innocence...

    well...I tried.

    It took FIA five years of continous rule-changing to keep Schumi off championship...with all due credit to him Alonso did not beat Schumi on his own last year...FIA did.Now they are doing it again.

    All said and done I am not saying MS did any good there...even a rookie hardly makes a mistake at such a corner,but its Monaco and a car lock-up is a very complex phenomenon.Schumacher's comments after the qualifying were agreeable,Briatore was at his whiny best and well-said by the usually arrogant Alonso...

    For todays race...GO KIMI! (If not Schumi that is )

    Have seen a lot so cannot be sure
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I am a big Schumacher fan, I think he is an awesome sports man and would never do something like that. Its not really in his charachter, its not his style. He is much more graceful than that, in my opinion.

    Erm, have you seen Schumi before? Jerez '97? Melbourne '94 when he drove into Hill?

    Didn't watch 94 but in 97 it was as much fault of Jacques as of Schumi. That's my firm opinion,was watching the race live,and was totally shattered to watch it and then to see everyone faulting only Michael was pathetic

    He turned in on him! That's asking for trouble.

    Jacques had gone up the inside and was away and Schumi turned in and hit his sidepod....Deliberate or momentary blindness maybe?

    If you read all the driver comments and then look at who is saying that it isn't deliberate (Willi Weber, Jean Todt) then it's pretty clear that it was deliberate.

    The sheer direness of Ferrari last year meant that Alonso and Kimi had a shot at the championship - the only race Ferrari won was the farce in America. Even this year now that Ferrari have caught up, they're still not blazing ahead.

    I'm a big Schmacher fan, one of the greatest drivers ever. But he's also a bit unsporting for want of a better phrase. No doubt in my mind that was deliberate. To lose control at Monaco is to lose half your car, he didnt lose control, he had total control of his steering all the way through (if you see from the in car camera he just simply doesnt turn the steering wheel, bar to line up his parking, and the steering works perfectly then), he didnt stall it as he said, as the engine was running for at least 5 seconds after he came to a total standstill (so even if he had lost control he still had enough control to move it)

    It took the guy on the radio about one second to work out that what Schumacher did was deliberate..

    I guess if he was a Backstreet Boy, and rear ended on a sharp curve, then he'd be totally innocent as well?
