ZOMG how funny did you come up with that all by yourself?Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition - complete with 'cheat mode'
Seriously its 2020 and morons come out with this crap every time, I have seen this ‘joke’ in multiple threads since the announcement of the Schumacher cars and now I’ve had enough of this bullshit.
Have you actually scratched the surface of this story or were the British tabloid headlines and xenophobic anti German innuendo enough hard evidence for you?
I mean did it even enter your small mind that Cosworth was the British engine manufacturer? Benetton Formula 1 based in the UK? But somehow they all conspired to give secret traction control to their relatively unknown German driver. Not his team mates they are all cool and didn’t use the cheat but that German guy ohhhf he def had a secret mode going that he wrote the code all by himself too. Idiocy.
Michael was basically the rookie in this situation with Riccardo Patrese but they switched on super secret retard traction control mode according to you?
"I did all the winter testing leading up to '93 because Michael had a problem with his knee. Anyway, he arrived at Silverstone for his first test of the year in February and it was one of those cold, foggy days when you would rather have stayed in bed. I went out and set a 1m27sec. Then he went out and after 5 laps had done a 1m24sec! I knew then he was pretty special. I went to check his telemetry and saw he was flat through Bridge! The year before we could only manage that corner flat for one lap in qualifying."
Can you please explain why an English team funded by an Italian company had so much deep seated love for this German newcomer they were willing to cheat just on his car? Staggering.
How about something from Ross Brawn? Yes another German loving Englishman who just so loved Michael he conspired to help him cheat (but again not his team mates they are all cool).
What does he say about the incident?
Tom and Flavio were on one side and Max Mosley was on the other. And they were at loggerheads. I remember a meeting at Barcelona where Tom and Flavio came out of it and said, ‘Max has resigned. He’s gone. He’s finished. We are going to have someone new.’ And I knew Max reasonably well by then and I thought, ‘Well, this’ll be interesting to watch.’ And, of course, they had stabbed the beast but they hadn’t killed it. Then it became very unpleasant after that. We got hauled in by the FIA, after Imola, and all our electronic black boxes on our cars were confiscated. A company called LDRA (Liverpool Data Recovery Agency) got involved in investigating what was in our black boxes. The first time round they found nothing amiss, so we were given the black boxes back. And then the war started between Max and the teams, and particularly Flavio and Tom. The black boxes were confiscated again. The FIA came along and said, ‘These are the numbers, can we have those black boxes again?’ So, having returned the black boxes, they took them again. They said they had some new methodology where they were going to be able to find out what we had been up to. In the end, we went to Paris to the Court of Appeal, and I remember some very unpleasant days there, but we were acquitted.
When the FIA went after us a second time, I had taken a short break. In those days there was a gap in the early part of the year, so I had nipped off to Mauritius for a quick holiday. And I just spent the whole time on the phone. I remember my phone bill was something like £1,000. I got a phone call from Flavio saying, ‘We are in trouble with the black boxes, don’t worry I’ve done a deal, we are going to lose the points for Imola, but everything will be okay after that, they’ll forget it.’ And I said, ‘We’re not going to lose the points for Imola, Flavio, because we have done nothing wrong.’ And Rory and I resigned. We told Flavio that we were not going to accept his deal. So Flavio backed off and we went into battle over the thing.
So Ross Brawn a man trusted enough to be the current managing director of Formula 1 and Rory Byrne resigned over the indignation of even admitting any wrongdoing? My these guys really laid their lives on the lines for this young German upstart didn’t they? This conspiracy runs deep.
Say how did Michael convince everybody to cheat and lie for him? Mind control? Bribery? He’s German don’t you know he can’t lie straight in bed there must be some story behind it?
Wait one last thing Ayrton Senna stood by the side of the track at Aida and heard strange engine notes mid corner when Michael was driving past and said they are cheating. Jeez that’s pretty damming. Had Ayrton even displayed the signs of a ‘sore looser’ before in the past?
Quote from “The Life of Senna”:
But when Senna spun his car in the first qualifying session and could only manage second on the grid, some doubts began to surface.
Senna was fuming. He believed he had been cheated of pole by Magnum’s David Leslie. He suspected the team of cheating and said so. He complained to journalists: “It was not fair. For sure they were not within the rules. Where there are so many limitations, there is no way that you can suddenly find a second of time. And when it came to the race they were one second away again. I don’t like being made to look stupid.”
This was after a year away from racing? High level cheating in Formula 2?? Instead of thinking he might be a little rusty and somebody legitimately beat him to pole? Haha this is your source for the conspiracy?
Michaels engineer that year an Australian (Nazi sympathiser no doubt) has written a book detailing how he was the first to maximise left foot braking. Keeping his foot on the throttle mid corner to stabilize what was obviously a difficult car to control(Another TC joke the on board footage of the 94 car shows it was a handful). But of course Ayrton is god and would have known all of this how could a young upstart show him up with a new driving technique he of all people didn’t know about?
So now I know this is quite a chunk of text for a small minded attention seeker who made a one line quip just to get some giggles. But really I have had enough of this ****. Is it the British sense of humour or something I’m missing? McLaren were literally caught cheating red handed but their cars can be included without any smug comments. No dirt stuck to Hamilton or Alonso even though they were at the team when it was caught cheating. Hamilton can lie to the stewards about Trulli overtaking him under safety car, work for a team caught cheating, call backmarkers monkeys, run illegal tyre pressures, back his team mate into traffic against team orders, be a generally arrogant unlikeable turd of a human but less mud is flung at him than at a driver and supposed incidents from decades ago? He should thank god every morning that he’s British imagine if this punk was German you would drag him to the Hague for crimes against Formula 1.
