You discounted his opinion as a 'rent-a-quote' his success on the track is what validates his opinions.
That may be your opinion. But it was insinuated by two others here that I neglected to ignore his other (non-safety) achievements. I never did. I merely pointed out that his safety record has nothing to do with his ability to judge an overtake move good or bad.
what is that 'vested interest'? maybe they're hoping that a 10 place penalty will make Schumacher easier to beat......
Button, in case you haven't noticed has 147 points, Schumacher has 38
Perhaps you've forgotten how difficult it is to overtake with current F1 cars? Especially if Schumi is ahead of you. Besides, Schumi has a legacy of dominating every driver on the grid. They're vitriole for him is still apparent.
He was forced against a wall due to the fact that the car to the left was driving at him and the wall to the right was, disgracefully, refusing to budge.
Did Rubens suffer a brake failure I don't know about? If the gap is diminishing and you see a wall coming towards you, brake.
Remember Massa and Vettel(?) in the pits a couple years back. Massa braked and got back in line. Why would you NOT brake? Perhaps out of stupidity.
How is this proof that he wasn't forced against a wall? It just proves the guy has balls like coconuts
It's not for me to prove a nothing. I made my remarks because someone said that Rubens was "forced". Where is the proof of this? There is not one iota, one shred of evidence.
When you say 'tiny' do you mean that big gap the size of a racing car?
You're asking why a racing driver put his car into a car sized gap whilst passing a competitor? i don't think racing is your sport kiddo
Yes, this is exactly what I meant. Such a gap is indeed tiny. It is the smallest gap you can go for if you want to overtake. There is no smaller gap to go for. Do you still think this is a huge gap? Show me a smaller one where a car will fit.
