hi,

        i've tried all web pages but none of them tells the reason why Schu
slows after the 2nd pit stop, and i really want to know. Ferrari's page
quotes Schu who said that he has no problems with his car or tyres, but
i don't think that's the case otherwise he won't slow that much down for
Vill to catch him up. he was about 1.5 to 2sec slower in the laps before
the collision.

I've just seached the web and this news group for the same info.  It
seems obvious to me that MS was immediately much slower after the 2nd
stop - before then JV & MS were very evenly matched, tho MS seemed to
be able to eke out 10ths of a second.  But after that last stop, JV
was with him in two laps.  And as for the suggestion that MS slowed on
purpose, well thats just rediculous.

why Schu slows after the 2nd pit stop

FIA is expected to hit hard with at least a 3 race ban and a sizable fine.

Regarding questions flying around about the accident.  He are some facts:

The electronic telegraph article written by Eddie Irvine, states two things:

1.  Schumacher did not have a problem when he entered that now infamous
corner.

2.  Schumacher had slowed down to save his tires and was caught off guard
when Villeneuve got so close, so fast.

I have great respect for Schumacher's driving ablilities.  He is arguably
the best, or at least was.  But, he is so self-absorbed he thought he could
do what he liked and get away with it.  Hopefully, that won't be the case.

Also, I am convinced Ferrari has some type of anti-spin technology which
they use in the rain and on starts.  Which is not cheating per se.  If they
can develop the technology and mask it within the rules, then they deserve
to use it.

I really don't think the Ferrari is as inferior as everyone says.  Eddie
Irvine ain't no Schumacher nor a Villeneuve, yet he performs well in the
Ferrari.

I would like to find/have some sensible information about this. It's
paramount...
It's the turning point of the race AND set the scene for Schumachers
faux pas!!!!
WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE SECOND PIT-STOP????????????
Surely someone on the net can find out more about Ferraris telemetry?
Ferrari - no statements. Maybe cover-up for wrong tire pressure or
something silly. It's a lot of shit going on at Ferrari in the next few
month.
Schumacher clearly cracked under pressure and showed his a very good
driver
with no personality but a very bad loser, also with no personality.

I think Shumacher just ran out of talent before
the race ended.
