ferrari are cheats. just been watching formula 1 racing and i cant believe michael shumacher has won unfairly. ferrari say that they are told not to race each other and shumacher must win as he is no. 1 driver. therefore told barrichello to lose and pull over to let shumacher win. not only is this cheating F1 but the viewers who are so sure that shumacher (the obnocious (sp?)big-headed little w*n*er) has lost.

    Hehehe just posted the same thing in the sport forum <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> at the end of the day, the drivers are not in charge, they both sounded very unhappy with the decision, they are not the only team to have done it before, and they couldnt exactly say no considering the salary they are on. It's not fair but they can hardly contest it and mouth off (look what happened to Irvine) In my mind it was Rubens who won the race.

    *just an ickle note to add that I hope those drivers who are injured are ok*

    in my eyes it should be disallowed (although it was clearly a win and M.S finnished first) drivers should not have to live in fear of being sacked it was the team that said it not the F1 officials, ok he would have been sacked from the team if he had gone behind their backs and won but he would of had a chance again next year. it should be against the rules. thats my view even probably because i dont like michael schumacher much.

    This should be in sports and fitness <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I don't see whats wrong with what ferrari did <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Its a team sport, not an individual sport, they pay the drivers, they make the cars, they give the orders, whats the problem ?

    I do see your point but....i dont see why they cant be happy with barrichello (sp?) winning its still a win for them i know that they want to win constructors trophy but how do they expect barrichello to ever have a chance to win if they dont let him. i think it was very unfair for him to be so close 'yet so far <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">' just because one driver has won more than another, the other never gets a chance it just does not seem fair to me

    Schumacher is the only driver that can stand up to Ferrari and not recive any backlash. It also breaches Barrichello's contract. It has been stated that 'Only when Barrichello was in a race winning position would he not be asked to move over and let Schumacher through'
    I thought what Schumacher did was good though it showed that he was upset with the actions aswell. But as stated before only he could have stood up to Ferrari and Di Montezemolo not fearing any backlash.

    Well, Ferrari are being taken to the FIA. Sadly (perhaps), not only are they likely to receive reprimand for telling Barichello to slow, but it's possible Schumacher will be punished for letting Barichello stand at the top of the dias.

    Now that's just bollocks.
