Ferrari's purpose in F1 is not only to win the constructor's championship, but to also produce a world champion. The rest of the season is UNCERTIAN, believe it or not MS is not guaranteed to be the world champion in 2002, however he is currently best positioned for the championship. Ferrari would be foolish or arrogant not to give him every advantage possible. It is widely known and accepted that 90% of the Ferrari team is dedicated specifically to enhancing MS's performance. It is common and uncontroversial that the number 1 driver has rights to race the other driver's car and take the ideal pit-stop strategy.
Please...please... if you are gonna sell out and buy into that Bahbling P.R. release by Ferrari, I'd rather not see your post. Its nothing more than a brain washed version of Plaguerased Ferrari horseschitt :tsk: Look... we are NOT as ignorant as Ferrari thinks. Fact of the matter is... Ferrari cheated Ruben out of his race:tsk: Look!! I am NOT a fan of Ruben, in fact I've always thought very lil' of Ruben. But onthe weekend of May 12, 2002 in Austria GP, Ruben was the KING. No if and but's about it. In anyother sports, blunt act of this magnitute would be be consider cheating.... in fact... only the same peple who though the Russian pair figure skaters were better than the Canadians in Salt Lake City would think this type of "fixing arragements"(aka cheating) is acceptable.
BTW, am I the only one that caught Ralph Schumi gave his brother a disgrace stare after Michael got out of the car??
What does that tell you??
Well.... here's what Ithink after watching the race.
Ruben: Class act, swallow his pride due to a contractual agreement. You can call him a hero, some will call him a coward. I dunno which is right, but he professionalism has scored significant points w/ me:thumb:
Michael: I don't blame him... it not his called. But 68% of F1 fans feels he should've disobayed the team order.
ferrari: Cheaters will NEVER win!! JPM's Train is coming to station and ferrari knows it!!
