Just a little bit of a rant.
I'll get this out of the way first: Yes I know of the the one defensive move rule. I think it is dumb and takes away from the competition, but a rule is a rule.
For those of you that watch F1 on BBC or frequent british F1 forums will know what I'm talking about. The british media is the most biased peice of crap, I've ever seen. The are all up in arms about how Schumacher held Hamilton at bay at Monza. Yes there was an instance where he pulled 2 defensive moves on Hamilton. But the stewards, saw that a warning was good enough and I agree he should have been penalized for it(still a dumb rule though). But if you read about it, they make it out to be that Michael was weaving in and out of the race line, forcing Hamilton onto the grass, blah, blah, blah. How come Button was able to pass him in half a lap, when the all mighty Hamilton couldn't do it in 29 laps. To me that was the best battle I have seen this year.
But if you read the article, you'll see Button complaining, Mclaren complaining, the even say a race steward was angry that he wanted an investigation into, but was denied. Last I heard, stewards are the ones that review incidents and make judgments.
I guess, in the end is what the hell happened to F1? It used to be a sport that showcased a driver's and car's abilities. Now it's all about trying to create a false sense of excitement, while Bernie runs laughing all the way to the bank.
I miss the good old days of Senna vs Prost(the 2 greatest drivers), Schumacher vs Hakkinen.../rant2010 335i Coupe Le Mans Blue
