WTF, I'm talking about your claim and blame that JPM didn't leave him
enough room. JPM made it clear twice in the Press conference that he
left him enough room (NOT AS MUCH AS HE WANTED SURE BUT ENOUGH),
Martin Brundle agrees, Frank & Patrick agree and expressed surprise
that the stewards were looking at it and everyone else except you and
a few sychophants have to try and find some blame in his pass. Did MS
ever have a millimetre of his tyre, his wing off the track????? A big
NO. The reason for the contact was pure and simple MS refusing to
yield and if MS refuses to yield then it's his responsibility to be
capable of using the track left which was still much wider than his
car to negotiate the corner without hitting anyone. HE failed to do
Look - let's start with 'Congratulations' btw.
Thanks, gratefully accepted. It's been a long while since I've felt so
eager to see Williams do well in races. 2002 was so disappointing
after the promise during 2001. :)
If you read the original post, I would have thought it not unreasonable.
But your observation here and later that MS could have yielded is
spurious. As soon as they hit the apex on that line, there was no way of
avoiding the Ferrari using more track than was offered.
If JPM didn't have a go at overtaking it would've been avoided, if he
had've yielded it would've been avoided. JPM gave him room for his car
and then some.
Again you know that it untrue 'and then some'? - given that they made
contact, that is unjustified.
"As for the collision with Juan Pablo, in my opinion it was a
straightforward racing incident. He was faster than me, tried to pass,
gave me just enough room to survive. Maybe I could have wished for a
little bit more space, but I have no problem with Juan Pablo over
this. No one was to blame."
Schumi's comments, so how is it untrue. He had at least his car and
another metre or so. He had enough room to survive yet somehow he
didn't. Well he did thru sheer luck of where he ended up but you know
what I mean.
Well, JPM again proved incapable of giving racing room at the exit. He
squeezed too hard, and he had the corner / pass anyway. So why do it?
You work it out.
I don't agree that he didn't give MS racing room at the exit. MS needs
to go listen to Kenny Rogers.
Well I would suggest that even with MS drifting wide, JPM could have
made the corner, taken second place and avoided contact. Do you
Maybe who knows. Going even wider on the outside could've put JPM on
the marbles risking more to him. Besides, part of successful
overtaking is to keep the pressure on your opponent so they do have to
yield rather than keeping on fighting. It was something that JPM has
had to learn and it seems that the Schu hasn't learnt it yet either.
Which I don't mind as I like a fight on the track anyway.
