Nothing Wrong With Schumacher's Driving!
by F1-2-1-2-1 (U13628470) 16 June 2010
He made his way up from 13th to 3rd after a sublime start and getting caught in all of the drama at the first corner damaging part of his from wing. His pace was good catching Button on the softer tyre before he pitted. Schumacher then pitted and came out infront of Kubica. David Coulthard called what happened next a racing incident but it wasnt even that, it was entirely Kubica's fault. Schumacher took the normal line around the next right hand kink and Kubica stupidly tried to poke his nose up the inside getting nowhere near alongside. Then kubica not fully alongside Schumacher, outbraked himself and went across the grass forcing Schumacher to do the same. WATCH THE REPLAY, you can see that Schumacher gave plenty of room and was going to make the corner but if he continued Kubica wouldve taken him out. He then got a puncture and was forced to do more than half the race on the softer tyre. By the latter stages of the race the tyres was understandably awful and Schumacher's pace was slow because of this. In the incident with Massa the move was so gradual and something we see week in week out from all of the drivers. It was nothing, coming down the middle of the straight and gently moving over to take the racing line into the corner. Massa didnt realise how early he was braking and hit him up the back. The stewards obviously agree with me as NO PENALTY was given. Some of Hamiltons on track antics this season have been truly outrageous and no penatlies have been given there is o way you can punish this move. Then on the last lap Liuzzi understeers into the side of Schumacher at turn 6 a move surely worth a penalty and damages his car even more. Race over.
