Thinking about it again. I don't have time now to search for it but, thinking again, I don't know if the EBD, itself, would jeopardize Schumacher driving style. Actually, wouldn't he benefit from it? I mean because he "plays" more with the throttle, he benefits from downforce he get's from staying longer with right pedal pressed. Isn't the engine mapping which would jeopardize Schumacher driving style? a device which would unable him to play with the throttle during cornering. Later. I'll try to find when Mercedes introduced their engine mapping.
PS:This was a genuine question, I'm not trying to prove a point with this post.
I think you are spot on mate. Beacuse of the engine mapping michael can no longer play with the throttle and brakes, i think its just like driving a manual and automatic gearing.
