Come on Schumi you can win this, with the 10 place penalty he should be in prime collision territory in Japan allowing him to close the gap even further, add a bit more overzealous defending into the mix in these last few fly-aways and we should see him wrapping this up before Texas.

yeah i know - i'm using the official FIA decision reports (http://www.fia.com/e...nformation.aspx) as basis and oddly quite a few of the reported ones in TV are never made public - the Senna investigation being one of them.

It's clearly not a fair system - Grosjean didn't get to run at Monza, so he lost the chance to get more penalties.

Maybe it should count as at least two items: investigation (spa) +penalty (monza).

Perhaps he can get a 20 grid penalty next time :p

Is it just me, or is this getting nowhere? The sheer amount of penalties show that something is wrong with the rules I guess. It seems like every race the stewards need to make their presence known to the world. If they give no penalties, they maybe classified as useless?

It's not really the stewards. A lot of it is the modern tracks. 20 years ago, if you put all four wheels off the "circuit" you were at best in the gravel and at worst in the wall. Now with acres of tarmac, you can be off the circuit, keep your foot on it and be faster than someone obeying the track limits.

yes, and to be consistent with that they've punished heavily yesterday the guys that did exactly that in T1 at the start
oh wait, they haven't...

Would you rather have had a pile-up at Turn 1 Spa-style or a few cars going off the road?

Mark's had a very clean season. Nothing that was his fault until this weekend, when he did something that was hardly a criminal error (IIRC I saw one of the occasions when he went off the track in Q3, he was getting out of the way), and then that bullsh*t penalty where he was shoved off by Kobayashi.
