Schumacher "win"[edit]

This is the wrong race to dispute. Michael's disqualification at Silverstone the same year was much more questionable. He was disqualified at Spa because the car was running lower than allowed by the Formula One regulations - he didn't win the race any more than he would have done if he'd taken the flag in a five-litre car. -- Ian Dalziel 21:07, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Ban[edit]

Wasn't the two race ban as a result of his DSQ at Silverstone, and not as a result of the excessive wear on the underfloor plank? --Don Speekingleesh 15:14, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

The two race ban was a result of his ignoring the black flag at Silverstone, yes. The revert war developing here is over whether he "won" the 1994 Belgian Grand Prix. At Spa-Francorchamps. Hence "at Spa" in the comment above. -- Ian Dalziel 15:22, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Agreed. I was referring the the way the article mentioned the two race ban - implying it was for this race. Should have made myself clearer. Sorry.--Don Speekingleesh 15:28, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Oh I see! Yes, agreed. I thought your comment was a response to mine. Juggled about to clarify, I hope. -- Ian Dalziel 15:38, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
