i hope u guys saw that ! cmon !

MONTOYA :
"He said he didn't see me, he didn't know I was there. He probably forgot to look. I got in front of him before Tosa. He didn't see me? He must be blind or stupid."

i cudnt agree more..

with him being ambassador to san marino.. they dont want to penalise him..

What Schumi did to Montoya was absolutely wrong. I can understand they're racing at very high speeds but these are professionals and Schumi being such an experienced driver should have known what to do.

In my opinion, Michael Schumacher only defended his position by keeping to the racing line and Montoya was not aggressive enough. If the roles were reversed, and Michael thought he could pull such a move off, he would have stuck to the track and forced Montoya to move to the inner portion of the track. I don't really like Juan Pablo Montoya and am no big fan of Michael Schumacher either, but, I can safely say that the latter is the best driver around and lesser at fault.
It was fun to see Barrichello first being sandwiched and later beaten by the two Renaults.

I think JPM is more to fault then Michael...Michael was on the racing line and u dont expect to overtake from outside in F1.I think JPM was being a bit ambitious trying to go around the outside(Alonso showed exactly how it is to be done!).What Michael did was just muscle his way by i dont think thats wrong just racing(I dont remeber which GP but JPM did put Kimi off-track last year when they were fighting it out)
Hope JPM learns a lesson not to try and overtake a car around the outside esp a Ferrari!
And the whining is absolutely childish!!!

Q: (Tony Dodgins – Tony Dodgins and Associates): At Tosa though, are you not trying to be a bit optimistic to drive around the outside?
JPM: I’ve done it before and it has got quite a lot of grip. I managed to get above my position there and when I was driving out of the corner he just pushed me wide. I’ve done it before at the Nurburgring passing him on the outside. You know he had very little grip on the first few corners. I understand he has got to defend his position, but how far do you go to defend your position that’s the question. Or how far are you allowed to do so.

Well,

What Schumacher did to Montoya makes for almost the same move that Montoya carried out immediately on Ralf. He admitted it himself.

The move we saw yesterday in the race is nothing new. Schumi was just defending is line and I'm not saying this because I an a Schumacher fan . I can also say that Montoya got a taste of his own medicine. Pushing someone off track isnt something new for Montoya. He did it to Ralf in frustration yesterday as well. And I can also remember the aggressive way in which he pushed Michael off track in Austria in 2001. So he really doesnt need to make a big issue bout it. This is racing.... and winning is everything . Like it was for the great Ayrton Senna..

Cheers

i think a few of u guys werent watching the 1st couple of laps too closely..
( esp. around the turns where he n montoya were fighting.. )
MS's ferrari was lacking grip.. thats why button was able to get away in the beginning..
( MS did say this in the post race interview )

to attempt to pass michael then was understandable surely !

It wasnt the first couple of laps...it was just the first lap(just till Tosa) that Michael was kinda struggling...he was fully justified in defending his position esp when he had the inside line and once he pulled away JPM never saw him till the chequered flag :d JPM might have had thoughts abt overtaking Michael but overtaking round the outside is stupid and ambitious(just like JPM:angry: ).So it was more of JPM's fault and he cried and whined abt it in the post-race press conference....wat a looser!!!

I WILL NEVER ACCEPT WHAT SCHUMACHER DID TO MONTOYA......my advice for both of them:

To Schumacher: "Next time see you break something off Montoya's car, or better throw him on some wall"

To Montoya: "Don't ever try overtaking Mr Schumacher"
