I've looked at it a few times now, and the car clearly locks up before the corner, slides wide as a result of the counter-steer on the way in. No way it was deliberate.

Without a doubt - do you think he would have stayed there if he wasn't on pole? :lol:

That 'missed' corner was SO obvious, he took totally different line in Rascasse 'leaving' him nowhere to go.

Funny how his car didn't even hit the wall.

Too bad FIA don't have the balls to do anything for stunts like these, anyone who thinks it was a genuine screw-up is so naive it's not even funny.

Anthony Davidson on R5 called it instantly - he said "that was on purpose". He says if you genuinely go off there you hit the barrier.

Flav did not look impressed and the Ferrari pit looked amused.

Cheating ****.

Senna deliberately crashed at Magny Cours once to get pole so your point is ?

While he did lock up I think there was still room for him to make it around. He just decided not to.

Yep, commentators on MTV3 called it deliberate instantly. Way too obvious, he took a completely different line in Rascasse.

FIA - it's your chance now to prove you have some balls.

When he turned the wheel left for the second time he wasn't correcting anyting (car wasn't sliding at all) he was just making sure he couldn't make the corner anymore. Hope he'll get reprimanded for this.

Senna did it to set the time himself, not to prevent others doing it.

As soon as the cheater saw his S2 time he knew he would not get pole so he resorted to blocking the track. It was by intent just like all his questionable moves over the years.

Very dirty. The FIA should throw the book at him but you just know they wont. Senna did the same thing once but he just drove around slowly blocking the track.

You all saw the onboard, right?

Yes. Clever but not quite fair. This reminds me of his staged spin few years ago. Was it Q1 of Silverstone? Everybody wanted to qualify first due the threat of rain.

I've looked at it a few times now, and the car clearly locks up before the corner, slides wide as a result of the counter-steer on the way in. No way it was deliberate.



He picked up completely abnormal line before the corner. At the time he steered to the wall the car was almost stopped already. Even I could have kept it on track from there :lol:

If it was deliberate, and if the stewards agree then it ain't such a smart move. If, in the opinion of the stewards a car deliberately stops out on the circuit their times from the session will be cancelled - with no right of appeal. Schumacher might have just consigned himself to p10 on the grid.

First- it looks pretty bad, and should be investigated.

But when u lock up, your braking distance increases- if you try to turn in at the normal apex you will lose the back- if the stewards can see that MS could of made the corner(from telemetry) then yes, put him at the back of the grid.

IF it was deliberate he should get penalised, but proving it's pretty tricky.

He looks like a school boy who's been caught cheating in an test in the press conf. confusing his words, stumbling, looking away a lot, blinking a lot...

Without doubt, he did not do everything he could to get the car out of the way. I really really don't want to believe that he intentionally blocked the circuit, but I can think of no other justification for what he did.

According to ITV - EVERY OTHER TEAM is saying it was deliberate.

Regardless of what Schumi did Alonso wasn't impeded, he drove around Schumi's car so did Alonso get any loss of time ?

of course it was deliberate. if this is called a smart move we have a really diverting understanding of why to watch a sport. he should be disqualified or be put back to the last row. what an ***hole.

Of course he did- you cant set your best time during a yellow flag.

I haven't seen a replay, so I can't tell. But if the stewards think it was deliberate, he should go to the back of the grid. Deleting his fastest time isn't enough of a penalty.

Given all the telemetry they have, the data will be there...but on whom does the FIA call to have it interpreted?

Even if it wasn't deliberate, he should still be punished because his "mistake" most like gave him unfair advantage.

Looking at the replay it's even more obvious.

Totally wrong line in Rascasse, doesn't even try to to go wide but turns intentionally to inside. Then he straightens the wheels quickly before turning them to right again, that little move made sure he couldn't turn in time.

Notice how he doesn't touch the wall so that the car won't be damaged.

If FIA fails to punish MS, it's only further evidence of double-standards.

Each session in qualifying is different, if you set your best time of the day in the first 15 mins then tough, Schumi broke no rules in the first 2 sessions so the most they are entitled to do is put him 10th
