Austrian GrandPrix

Barichello got robbed today!!!!! down to team strategy. He deserves that win. Can't believe Ferrari would pull something like this so early in the season. Heck its not like MS dont have a 20point lead over the next competitor (JPM).

Speakin of JPM or Williams. When are they going to catch up with Ferrari. I thought this is THE year because the BMW engines produce so much power. Believe 50 more then the next closest competitor. Reliability don't seem to be the problem this year around. Tires? Maybe they should use Bridgestones instead. There is a reason why Ferrari is winning all the races and williams coming in 2nd. It's time to see a Williams BMW on the Top podium!

Yeah that was pretty wack. I predicted that Schu would win but not like this.

MS Fan here

I'm very respected to MS b/c when you were looking into details, you could see :
1. Michael wore 2nd place Bridgestone cap instead of 1st place.
2. Micheal didnt step on the podium ; he gave the trophy to Ruben.
3. Michael didnt sit in the middle where the winner should sit during pree conference.

At the beginning, I thought Ferraris could pull their near rival at least 60 second. Anyway, Ruben is the hero, and moral winner of today.

I just think management at Ferrari sucks, I was so pissed seeing them taking the victory of the young boy and then giving it to MS, I understand the numbers game, but in this case it was the worst anti-sport kind of attitude that I have seen in a while.

Its great that RB resigned with Ferrari, but I bet there is proly a clause in there stating that he has to obey team orders. That just sux for who ever signs the contract.

Ferrari doing that because they want to secure the championship because back to 1999, 1998, and 1997 they lost in the last race. So they dont want to take risk of it.

I understand Ferrari's concerns, but this is just degrading to the drivers performance.
