It was a pretty awful move from Michael, and while I don't agree with it I can partly understand why he did it. There is a lot of history between Michael and Rubens, and since leaving Ferrari Rubens has said some quite negative things about Michael... after what has happened in the past I think they just don't like each other anymore. Even in some of the charity karting events they managed to have arguments about who did what on track. :? I was disappointed at Michael's lack of defending in Silverstone (when he was quite easily passed by Sutil and Vettel) - he was still defending for points in that race but he didn't do anything aggressive to hold position. I don't believe Michael would have tried the Hungary move on anyone else, i think it was more personal. That still doesn't make it right.

Add to that the fact that he is struggling with this car (compared to his team mate), and he seems to spend all of the races in defensive mode as he doesn't have the weapons to attack - it must be pretty frustrating.

Now there is a ten place penalty for Spa, and things just seem to go from bad to worse. I'm not sure how much longer he will keep racing like this.

Nice move here, with full onboard footage that we didn't see during the race. Overtake is at about 1:45 in the video.

Bernie you stingy bastard.

For some of the more boring races he should think himself lucky anyone is even trying to watch.

Incidently the video was onboard from Schumachers car, from the safety car restart up until he got past Rubens. It was a nice move - he got super close in 130R and then when Rubens defended Michael went around the outside of him on entry to the chicane. It must've been very close to contact between them, but good clean racing in the end.
