i didn't think what montoya did was at all dangerous... it was against the rules but not at all risky imo

he should have had a stop and go penalty rathe then being disqualified.

There could be a ban for Montoya as the FIA said to mclaren after the incidents at Monaco to keep him in check. Kimi might get a fine for the pit lane incident where DC had to brake hard to avoid going into him.

Red lights indicated danger. He came storming out of the pit lane just after the safety car and into slow traffic. He braked as there was no-where to fit in, and then floored it to get infront of DC.

While it didn't cause any accident today, a driver who beleives it is ok to go through the red pit lane light has little appreciation for what could have happened!

One moments hot head-ness could cause a big smash!

I think it was dangerous, but not so much so that it warranted an immediate disqualification.

The FIA are all for improving the spectacle as a whole, and disqualifying someone isn't doing that. Why not, if it is deemed completely irresponsible and dangerous, look at it after the race, and give penalties, etc accordingly?


Anyway, am off to watch Top Gear.
Must say thanks to Flibster for some more cracking coverage and stats, it is much appreciated :)

No doubt M Schum is a very dirty driver. He's not so bad now but he was a disgrace to himself when he pushed Damon Hill out a a few years back to win the last race.

However, i agree that whan Montoya did today was pretty dangerous, and the punishment did fit the crime imo.

You missed Villeneuve out.. ;) Tried exactly the same thing after making a mistake and broke his suspension and damaged Villeneuves car - Villeneuve nearly had to retire from the damage. True - he was excluded form the championship and given a severe warning.

Plus the numerous drivers who have been trying to overtake that he's pushed onto the grass and then complained at them for being unable to slow down.

Wouldn't be so bad - but he's been doing that since his F3 days.

As for Montoya - yes he broke the rules - it wasn't dangerous *I can't actually see why that rule is there tbh*

Black Flag - not sure thats justified - but then again since when has F1 been a level playing field...

Right here, right now!
exciting race in Canada. lots of things to talk about!!!!

Good racing loadsa controversy, shame about the broadcast.
No live qually....first advert break on lap 5 then back out on lap 7 so 2 laps missed then another break on lap 12 and back out on lap 15 another 3 laps missed.

15 laps gone and we have missed a third of the race :mad: great coverage ITV you should be ashamed!!! Plus having to put up with that **** Allen on the Mike :mad: ( I wish I could mute his so called commentary and just have Martin brundles)

Come on BBC get the racing back and lets have some proper broadcasting!

Ooo Ooo can I play in the shuey bashing game!!!

Begin rant!
I think he's a dirty cheating git who has forgotton how to overtake............. shuey to pits radio...." Cars in front so I won't overtake because I can't"
Pits to shuey " don't worry we can get past them in the pit stop"....and this is a 7 times world champ!!!!!!!!!!

And don't get me started on his contract! A great driver does NOT need a contract that says his team mate is NOT ALLOWED to race him!

Pfft!

Rant over! :p

I'll agree with that, its not like it was a fast part of the circuit, but I suppose have to encompass every circuit they're at, not have one rule for montreal, another for indianapolis.

And I still think Brundle is a complete plank.

With regards to Montoya's removal from the race, I got the impression that the rules explicitly state that this is the punishment for ignoring a pit lane red light.

If this is the case then unless the light was broken (highly unlikely or Ron Dennis would have protested it immediately and kept Montoya out) what other course of action was there to take?

Flibster I admire the job you do here but I do not like the way you show some level of hatered towards Ferrari or Shumi

I personally like ferrari and like to see them win but to call Schumacher a dangerous driver and continue to give stick like you do every race weekend is a bit pathetic.

Does anybody remember the days when Senna ran into prost at the first corner of the last race to secure the championship and vice versa.

Remeber when everyone used to label Eddie Irvine as unsafe and also don't forget Massa who in his early F1 years was a bit of a lunatic.

Every driver has his good & bad points but to single out one driver and continue to badger him is sad.

I think montoya's punishment was a bit ahrsh, but if thats whats in the rulebook then so be it (not read it so i dunno if it is or not)

As for it being dangerous, hardly, you've got a stream of cars at nowhere near their limit, and it's not like his burst of acceleration put him into the car ahead, bit rash and silly maybe, dangerous no.

Schumacher and Barrichello are lucky imo, if both renaults and even Button had completed the lap i would imagine they would've been ahead, but hey, fair play to 'em :p

Well done to kimi, had the measure of MS at the end, could've been faster earlier on but it played out well and only 22 points behind now, hope he gets the championship :)

Thing is Michael Schumacher is arrogant and has been known to do some VERY stupid things just to get his win, including running into people, running people off the track etc

Difference with the examples you give, unlike Senna etc, M Schum is a current driver who continues to do these things.

Just a thought, but what would have happend had he pitted and got out before the safety car made it the exit of the pitlane.

He's be a lap ahead of everyone ;)

The funny thing is Montoya does exactly the same, gets disqualified for not sticking to the rules, yet somehow he is an amazing driver and deserves better :eek:

It doesn't matter, the safety car was on the pit straight, the light at the end of the pit lane goes red until all cars behind the safety car have passed.
