The video clearly shows that Villeneuve was AHEAD of Schumacher when the two collided. Schumacher himself, as mentioned by me and others before, has said he wishes he hadn't made that move, effectively admitting it was an error of HIS, not Villeneuve's. There is nothing for you to defend from Schumacher's side in that incident.
If you were making the same comments regarding the 1994 incident, I would personally disagree BUT that's a less clear-cut event, and neither party has actually made a conclusive comment on it. In this case it's Schumacher's fault, and failure to see that is simply denial of the facts.
If there is no problem with me having a different opinion then why keep trying to change my mind. If I was going to change my mind then I would have by now. I am not in denial of any "facts" (as you call them) but having reviewed the events many times is simply have a different take on things. I suggest to deal with that, allow me my opinion and move on.
Spot on. We're dealing with a fanatic, which Winston Churchill described as "One who can't change his mind and won't change the subject".
I resent being called a fanatic and see no need for the insult. If you don't like my opinion then tough. I'm not really one of those saps who likes to go with the common concensious just so I can feel that I am right, I prefer to think for myself and if that means I arrive at a conclusion that is not widely accepted then so what? I sure as hell don't care! So what if I have a different opinion. Does it hurt anyone, does it keep anyone up at night, does the earth stop turning? No of course it doesn't!
