And Eddie Irvine would be banned for 3 races for doing what Schumacher did :-)

Is this a trick question? Yeah, Schumacher must feel real bad, so bad that
it wouldn't really matter if the championship was taken away - right...

Is it Schumacher's objective to win friends or win championships? If you
believe other sponsers wouldn't want to be associated with Schumacher then
why would he be one of the highest sought after drivers - witness Ron Dennis
only willing to offer Barrichello and probably Frentzen only one year deals so
that he can get Schumacher for '96.

I'm not sure which would be worse for Schumacher, either having the
Championship taken away or being allowed to keep it. It won't win him
many friends, and Benetton - The parent company, not the racing team -
can't be very pleased with the outcome, when they badly needed, and
possibly deserved, a fairy tale ending to a season tainted with
controversy.

have you tried to purchase any Benetton F1/schumacher clothing or
paraphernalia since sunday?  there's one big mail order place here and
they were swamped to the point where their fax machine died.  yes,
everything with schumacher/benetton on it has been sold out.

i don't think benetton is too unhappy at the moment.. :)

Ron Dennis wasn't particularly impressed with Schumacher in Adelaide
-"Highwayman" is not the most complimentary of terms I've heard him use
to describe a driver.
