That was a disgrace, and quite unneccessary. Schumacher might still have been in second position. I guess to become seven time World Champion and still be motivated must require a monster ego. I don't know if any of you remember, but similar unsportsmanlike behavior was common between Senna and Prost. Damon Hill was not a popular person in the paddock either, and as much as I liked Mansell, he was generaly disliked among the drivers. It was quite common for racing engineers/teams to loan each other certain parts or tools etc.. They have been Instances of flat refusals, when they realized it was for Mansell. Anyhow, starting from the back of the grid should give Schumacher plenty of time for reflection. Cheerio, Teutone (aka Horst K)
