Montoya seemed out of his element in the slower car - nice tires, what the hell is with that - with Ralf out Montoya should have been focused on getting points - any points - if he did what he did deliberately, you are saying he purposely threw away any chance of getting points - I think this is enough to get booted...I will give him benefit of the doubt this time around.
He was holding 6 cars behind him. HOLDING which is okay nothing wrong with that. Schumacher had tryed to pass him several times. When the aproached this 90 degree right turn Montoya braked very early. Schumacher didn't even aproached his braking zone so the only move for him not to get passed by someone behind him was to go on the outside which he did. When montoya saw him on his side, he let out of the brakes and went as fast as he could to the apex knowing that he still had to brake more to make that turn. Schumacher was at his side and went off not to collect the out of shape Montoya. Trust me when you see it you'll see what I mean by a dirty trick. He was hoping for the five racers behind him to collect one another. I can feel it.
