I understand the frustration by many fans over Schumacher's tactics, however this particular manuever was nothing like Adelaide '94. Nor was it even on the same level as his starts when he knifes across the track.Many people dropped the ball: Michelin, Bernie Ecclestone, Max Moseley, Ferrari, and Schumacher. Anyone catch him driving Rubens onto the grass after pitting?
It's such an obvious solution. Makes you wonder why it wasn't adopted.What would have been wrong with the following compromise:
A chicane would be constructed in turn 13. All cars would participate in the race, but only Bridgestone-shod cars would have been eligible for world championship points. This would have ensured a spectacle for the fans while still preserving the integrity of the championship--since, after all, Michelin got the tires dead wrong and did not even bother to bring a suitable backup; and since, moreover, the Bridgestone runners should not have been penalized for bringing the correct tire.
They made that exact point on the local news, asking what the reaction would have been at nearby Talladega if that had happened. *shudder*I still can't believe there wasn't any rioting. Â Just imagine if it was Nascar what would have happened.
