Ross Brawn Says: You Gotta Earn It Rubens!
Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn has told the media that Rubens
Barrichello will have to earn his second place in the championship,
and that Michael Schumacher will not be asked to pull over to let the
Brazilian win. Barrichello was asked to make way for Schumacher in
Austria, where the Brazilian clearly would have won the race.
"We'd like Rubens to finish second, but we're not going to do anything
silly to achieve that, so we'll see what happens, Brawn said.
Funny, they clearly wanted Michael to win the championship but were
completely prepared to do something silly to achieve that. Somehow
what Ferrari pulled off in Austria will never be forgotten, even Brawn
still seems to think about it.
"There are some things we still want to achieve in the rest of the
season, Brawn continued, but we all know what happened in Austria,
and that's something we don't want to repeat, so we'll try and do it
in the nicest possible way."
What on earth could those some things be? Lets see, theyve secured
both championships, both drivers have won a race, theres been 1-2
finishes, Schumacher is tied with the record for wins in a season
Ill take a wild, completely left wing guess that they want Schumacher
to get his tenth win. And then eleventh. Hell why not make it an even
number and go all the way to twelve! To do it in the nicest possible
way, all Ross has to do is play with the pit stops a bit to get
Schumacher in front. I dont trust what that man says anymore
