Bullshit. Senna pulled a bullshit move and anyone that understands racing knows it too. The penalty is ridiculous.


My view on the incident here and here, where you can also see the replay.

Senna wanted to gift Schumacher the inside line to prevent a repeat of the Grosjean contact that happened the lap before. He pulled to the left just as Schumacher committed to that line. It's an unfortunate racing incident.

I predict a Schumi fight back in Monaco.

Stewards made their decision, we will not cry about it. We accept the things as they are, we will not start threads , to make it the biggest problem in the world. They better sort out the car , because only STR and new teams are behind us.

:up: :up: :up: Yes after all it's the stewards' job to decide. The real problem is MGP and the W03 after all.

The legendary comeback continues. A bit sad but really, for the sake of dignity, let's hope he bows out at the end of this year.

This year will definetely be his last. He has driven well considering his age but it is rather clear that it becomes harder and harder for him to do split second decisions which are needed in this sport. I can give Michael grade: c+ for his performances which should be fair.

I don't lie mate. I didn't say he had a 5 place penalty to piss you guys off.


I know that you normally post good info but it wasn't posted anywhere else. Thanks though.

I finally admit, MS isnt good enough anymore this.

I would love to eat my words but I stand by my statement. His judgement isnt there anymore, he is too aggressive and over compensates. I feel this is a mental problem now and just hope he retires at the end of 2012 with dignity with no regrets.

Nothing will diminish 1991-2006, your utter dominance, ALL your records and your leadership. I just hope you retire and enjoy your $1bn+ fortune.

He was pretty decent at the start. he can still cut it, this was just a stupid racing incident. You see it happen. Lewis has had them, Vettel has had them. Neither of them are down on the reactions needed for racing. It happens sometimes.

Should Button retire also? Becuase he was having a worse weekend than Schumi when the crash happened.

It's just such a bloody bad streak and it's even worse knowing something like this more or less compromises one of the most exciting races on the calendar.

Haha, well done you bought lots of merchandise.

The writing certainly isn't on the wall, you've made up your mind so I'm not going to bother debating it. But those who clearly aren't over dramatic in response to Schumacher or Mercedes results we can see it's a different story.



OK fair enough. I was just trying to show with the merchendise comment that i am not a passer by fan.

I also wont stop supporting him No matter what. I suppose everyone will have a different opinion on his return. I base mine on results. i don't know what different story other fans are picking up, but his comeback has been nowhere close to successful in my opinion.

On the plus side with all these random results we could still get a win before season ends.

Schumacher was predominantly at fault for the crash, but I'm sick of seeing penalties given for accidents, and ones that are not the fault of one perpetrator at that.


indead mighty mistake by MS...and stop all the other conclusions..

So a clown weavering in the brake zone didn't even get a penalty, it is the dude that hit him that does. Senna doesn't even know those reflective parts to his left and right in view are called mirrors. He could have easily seen MS was on the outside.

Now that I think about this, I reckon that if I was in a car at 300 kmph and saw the possibility of getting a wheel or two on the grass due to a more aggressive maneuver by an opponent I know to be reckless, I'd have tried for the inside lane as well.

Actually seeing Schumacher on the outside was part of the crash buddy. He thought Schu settled for that line, and squeezed him leaving a car´s width on his left. Then Schumacher changed his mind and went for the inside.

I understand why Schu got scared, but had he stayed on the outside he would have been given room.

I raced my whole Life, raced some of the drivers you discuss in this forum, and I don't agree without you, so, no, anyone who understands racing doesn't see it as you do.


Oh it's the ubiquitous "I've raced and I know better than everyone else" racing forum response. Gee no one has ever seen that before :rolleyes: ...this is as straight forward as it gets, Schumacher made the mistake because Senna is running down the center of the track then suddenly veers to the left in an apparent attempt at a block right in the braking zone...if you know anything about racing (which clearly you don't, but maybe that is why you are here and not running a car) then you know that once MS applies the brakes he has limited steering input...even so...he did the best he could to turn back to the inside...

This problem was 100% created by Senna...to give MS a penalty for Senna's bonehead driving is a joke... :down: :down: :down: And sorry you have no clue if you support that penalty...

Its also the fault of these garbage tyres.Ive never seen an F1 tyre that has an increased braking distance of 20m when worn.

Schumi isnt what he used to be but driving around nursing the tyres is sucking the life out of him.

Buddy, Senna DID leave a car´s width on the left.

His move wasn´t a block attempt, he was simply comming back towards the racing line always leaving room. Sure, Schumacher got scared because he though the guy could go to the left edge (maybe because that´s something Schumacher usually does himself), but he DID NOT.

Right...he simply drifted to the outside to setup the turn right? I mean it wasn't and actual hard jink to the left what it? Reality, what a concept huh? :rolleyes:

Do you have any analysis or these one-liners are the best you can do?

I think Schumacher was at fault and I´m discussing it and making my point on the incident, you´re just trying to bother people. Get lost.



Sorry bud if you are maintaining that Senna was simply setting up the turn by moving to the outside you don't have a leg to stand on...that is a completely ridiculous assertion. The man was running down the center of the track, then at the last second before the braking zone did a hard jink to the left...THAT is what happened.

He thought Schu had settled for the left line, and went as far left as he could.

Schumacher thought Senna hadn´t seen him there and was comming back to the left edge, but he was wrong. Senna saw him there and was ready to leave room for him there, and he did it at every point of the action.

Watching the incident is not hard to do it.

Senna didn´t come back completely to the racing line, so he KNEW Schu was left.

Schu didn´t chose the inside in the first place when Senna went to the middle, so that late change of mind is more an evasive move anticipating something that didn´t happen (Senna going completely left).

The only way I´ll change my mind on who´s at fault is watching it from Schu´s onboard and feeling unsafe myself when Senna starts going back left.



Poor video, but Senna is leaving more than enough room left, plus his move is far from "a hard jink". I don´t see why Schu felt he needed to change his line. :confused:

Another fair weather fan bids adios.....don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Schumacher screwed up, he rammed Senna. His mistake clean and simple. To blame Senna, or to spin this incident in any other way is to be blind and oblivious to the obvious. The stewards made the right call.

It's a rumor for a while (fueled by their contracts?).
As far as I understand Schumacher can't read (i.e. predict) properly the moves of B. Senna's generation.
Petrov, Kobayashi and Grosjean is still on the field.
Schumacher has had incidents with all of them. He should be more patient.

I find your response rather insulting, I never claimed to know more than you. You had stated that anyone who understands racing would see it as you do, I simply said that I raced, hence, understand racing (not implying better than anyone) and, that I don't agree with your view, hence, not everyone who understands racing agrees with you, hence, your comment (IMHO) was flawed.

You point out that Schumacher had limited steering, which is in part correct (he has full steering, however limited control) but then point out he turned back to the right, however, fail to alias that had he NOT turned the wrong way and had gone left instead( by that same amount of "limited steering") he would have avoided Senna to the left, in fact, what he should have done, coupled with (with his experience) knowing that by that point Senna had superior position and that there was no way through the Brazilian, he should have realized this before his boneheaded move and left himself a bit more room to work with (and I don't mean backing out of it completely, there are ways to keep the pressure up)

BTW, anytime you want to share your racing stories I'm game.....

Just like giving Vettel and Massa a DT but the rest of the group they were racing around could continue? I saw Button in that group as well, the distances between the cars stayed the same, yet two drivers got a penalty.

Do you get that this is at the end of the DRS zone under heavy braking? Do you get that this is literally the fastest point on the track? Do you get that the contact happens under braking? The "adapting to something that didn't happen" statement is trying to apply hindsight to a racing incident that Senna created...what has racing become when you penalize a guy for reacting to someone weaving in front of you? It was a racing incident, one that Senna created...he is running down the center of the track and weaving because he was being a tool...and frankly he got what he deserved...

So running down the center of the track off the preferred line is "superior position". Yeah, I don't think you have much racing experience. I don't. If you think Senna had superior position you need to read his late Uncle's book - you know, the Principles of Race Driving. Make sure you start on page one.

It is real then.

This is getting stupid.

Schumacher was robbed of his 4th place points position by the FIA in 2010 which mercedes didn't protest since no title was on the line.
Now this penality, add this along with the gearbox-australia, pitsotp wheel nut-china, drs issue quali-bahrain, racing with bruno senna.

It is real.
http://www.gpupdate....on-monaco-grid/




Schumacher is going to be even more pissed at everything now, the FIA have become annoying to join with the annoyance of losing spain points, I expect him to channel his anger into the 2006 Monaco race performance. :mad: :mad: :mad:

Not adapting. If you´re on the outside of someone into a braking zone, expecting him to move towards you as much as he can without blocking your way is normal.

What Senna did was defending, and then going back towards the racing line leaving a car´s width. It´s perfectly OK.

If they were all just cruising around, nowhere near the limit you'd expect MS to have plenty of time to take avoiding action. Given that current F1 us like following a safety car and not actual racing I'm shocked he had this incident.

Oh my, you´re clueless.

A full car lenght´s in front, and with the inside line into the braking zone IS a superior position. You have no hope to pass someone in that position, all you can do is to get a better exit and try later. You have no hope of hanging around the outside, and if the other guys parks it on the apex and avoids the undercut you won´t even get a better exit.

What is the purpose of "leaving car's width" in that case? Senna moved in braking zone and when you brake you can't move car much which is why Schumacher couldn't switch line.

Have you ever drove a car?

Not adapting. If you´re on the outside of someone into a braking zone, expecting him to move towards you as much as he can without blocking your way is normal.

What Senna did was defending, and then going back towards the racing line leaving a car´s width. It´s perfectly OK.


Yeah it wasn't weaving at all was it? What a joke. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I suppose the fact that DRS was deployed and the fact that MS is carrying more speed at the time is just as pointless in your head as the fact the Senna is weaving his car down the center of the track...but you know you probably have racing "experience" too right? And just like the other guy you would have realized what Senna was thinking and "left yourself room" and all that, yes? What a joke. :down: :down: :down:

Oh my, you´re clueless.

A full car lenght´s in front, and with the inside line into the braking zone IS a superior position. You have no hope to pass someone in that position, all you can do is to get a better exit and try later. You have no hope of hanging around the outside, and if the other guys parks it on the apex and avoids the undercut you won´t even get a better exit.


No. The clueless one is you. MS is carrying more speed on the outside and is going to steal that apex which is why Senna jinked to the left. You simply do not understand what happened.

Senna did move in the braking zone and that should not be allowed but hearing Schumacher complaining about someone moving in the braking zone is somewhat ironic.
Schumacher had the inside if he wanted it I guess he just misjudged how early Senna would have to brake given the state of his tyres at that stage.

All in all I would put it down as a 50/50 thing but the stewards do tend to give extra latitude to the defending driver.
