Re: Schumacher Tests At Portimao !!
I think phil does have a point.
Although the 'sausage sucker' clearly had many good (or great) skills as a driver, when the pressure was really on and the red mist descended I think his natural inclination was to cheat. That is probably alright when playing Monopoly with children - but when there is a whole host of cameras around people can see what you are doing.
Just running into cars overtaking you for example because you don't want them to is a little bit outside the spirit of the game. You can probably get away with it once but after a few times it starts to become a bit boring. Then again perhaps the 'spirit of the game' is a uniquely British trait - who knows.
One quick question perhaps - was it not the case that Shumi won about 4 world titles and stopped 3 other people from winning one. Let me see - 4 + 3, that would equal 7!
