SprintnSprintn said:GTV116... I have to disagree with you. When a driver sees yellow flags but can't see what exactly it is around the blind corner, Only to see the back end of a car parked just off of what is already a very narrow racing line, this is enough to mess with his consentration, if only ever so slightly. Telemetry may not show it, but I'm sure Alonso's seat of the pants feel for the car was, at least, slightly disrupted.
I have always had a great respect for your modest opinion.I am just telling what i 've seen (several times).Alonso saw a yellow flag, which means caution.He didn't see a waved yellow flag, which usually means there has been an accident or spinout somewhere or there is some debris on the track.
Scumacher's punishment was a result of a violation of the article 116:"If, in the opinion of the stewards,a driver delibarately stops on the circuit or impedes another driver in any way during the qualifying practice session,his times will be cancelled".
And now is time for a little laugh!!
"Don" Joaquin Verdegay de la Vega, the steward who proposed Schumacher's punishment, at Gazzeta dello Sport: "We dont know if the entire manoeuvre was deliberatebut in that spot he had certainly not done anything like it throughout the weekend.He braked over 50% more heavily than on the other laps.If he had hit the barriers, we could have said that his move was not intentional".
Do i have to make any comment?
According to Todt,the stewards didn't examin Ferrari's data!!!!!
