@Kingshark. We could argue about Suzuka 1990 forever, especially considering that Senna had mentioned even before he took pole, that the grid sides should be reversed. We all saw happened in 1989 Suzuka, and how he was screwed out of the world title, and honestly it was more of a retaliation than anything else. I cannot convince people that Senna’s 1st corner move was noble, and I do not intend to. It was definitely a shameful moment in his career.
BUT, you cannot compare them to Schumacher’s antics in Adelaide 94, and Jerez 97. They were two of the most despicable moments in recent F1 history, and to see him smile and celebrate after Hill’s retirement in Adelaide, pretty much sums up the kind of champion he is.
As I said, each person will have their own unique opinion on this.
I dont know how you can look at Schumacher’s move to Ferrari as a sign of greatness, when each and every one of his teammates at Ferrari were not allowed to race him, and just let him through each and every time. And it wasn’t a brave move or a risky decision to move to Ferrari in 96. They had acquired some of the best technical, managerial and political resources at Ferrari, and it seemed like quite a good decision even at that time.
