I do not agree with concept of sabotage, that's seems rather OTT and despite that it makes no sense, we cannot forget certain Mr. S. at Ferrari and strange white substance in his pockets. Unbelievable things do happen.
Yeah. Jock Clear never got over Jerez 97. Can't possibly be any other explanation
What happened to you make your own luck when Schumacher was winning race after race, while his team mate was being left on stands sitting on the grid? On left in the pits with 3 wheels? Or out of fuel again...
If we want to hold to the theory that teams sabotage their own car, then there are some serious questions hovering over Ferrari during the Micheal years.
I have always questioned whether it is a good idea to get Schumacher and Clear together because of the past. Clear might be performing well for Schumacher these days, but is he really committed to his full extend and beyond, as some other man, hungry for victory would? Perhaps that small margin of extra is missing to complement demanding Schumacher. I hope Ross has left no stone upturned, even if this is a hidden, hard to detect attribute, and you can discover it only through rotation of men. Recent events definitely are ripe for a deep dig into heart of the problem, despite that it was increasingly apparent already last year, that not all is well. Weird strategies, delays, and every downfall went down to car and the concept of the "old man", thus it was difficult to submit a rational case that his team is not up to snuff, but I think smoke has cleared this year, and not everything could be put to Schumacher's doorstep anymore.
