In light of the shenanigans at last Sundays F1 race at Hungary is it time for Mikey to re-retire before he kills someone?

Can't see the big problem myself its Schumacher all over nothing new from what hes done in the past its just now with the amount of rules in F1 its spoils for the excitement eventually there will be a rule to stop anyone from overtaking as it could cause a crash and someone may get hurt or all slower cars must pull over to allow the faster cars through no but seriously it blown way out of proportion Imo it was one of the best parts of the race as a spectator and im by no means a fan of Schumacher I just don't think he did anything wrong or anything that we wouldnt expect from him.

Schumacher's semi-apology (as close as he was going to get, anyway) after the race was actually surprising to me - maybe he has grown a little.

I do have to admit that I root for Rossberg to out-qualify and out-finish him every race because I get tired of hearing about the "Return of the Great Schumacher"

I agree I root for Rosberg also but its funny as Schumacher is actually the number 2 driver in that team as Rosberg has pretty much out qualified him and out raced him all season and you only have to look at the points table to see evidence of that.

Massa gets classed as a 2nd driver to Alonso even Webber although leading has himself said he feels like he gets classed as the 2nd driver to his team-mate Vettel but im sure it will never be said or admitted that Schumacher is the 2nd driver to Rosberg.

I was never a great Schumi fan but thought he had a load of talent. After seeing him park his car on the circuit in Monaco a few years ago in qualifying and now this BS move in Hungary I have to say he's seriously lacking in sportsmanship and respect for the sport. He could win 20 titles, he will never approach Juan Manuel Fangio in class. If he ever pulls a stunt like that again I sincerely hopes he meets the wrong people in a dcark alley somewhere.

F1 has added a "Driver's Steward" to the Steward's Room, in hopes of adding "driver's perspective" to the steward's discussions. Each race this year has had a different steward, former F1 drivers all. For Hungary it was Derek Warwick - and his perspective was that Schumi should have been black-flagged on the spot, not just given a 10-position grid penalty for the next race. (Although, given his poor qualifying position in Hungary, that would have put him in something like "negative 4th place" in Hungary - several grid spots behind the last car...)

What would have been the repercussions of MS actions had it been another driver? Especially one newer to the sport?

I'd guess at minimum a one race suspension along with close scrutiny for the remainder of the season.
