Just wow. In 30 years of watching F1, this one takes them all.
No question that he braked. Question is whether he meant to cause a wreck, or was just frustrated that H wouldn't pass him before the DRS detection zone. The whole situation was a cluster F, with lack of notice to H.Bill, I've read that there was a 2.4G deceleration associated with a brake action just prior to the impact, so it appears it was more than just downshifting and off-throttle reductions.
Yes, Schumi was infamous for playing dirty. Purposly crashing during qualifying to keep others from out qualifying him. Crashing into competitors to keep them from out-scoring him in a race. So, yes, Max is a lot like Schumi...about as cut-throat as they come.Thanks Terry, That speaks volumes.
On the other side, sometimes I think the FIA gets a bit picky when trying to keep it clean.
Ron, did Schumi play dirty like Max did on Sunday? I don't recall.
