That is just so childish it's unfunny. To suggest that one man held sway in the stewards' room in order to avenge something that seems to worry everyone except him is silly.
It is more childish to defend the the sanctimonious sod who did a bad job. He screwed up! So you should be prepared to see him blamed.
The only people who think he screwed up are Schuie fans. Or has he (or any of the stewards/Charlie) gone on record to admit they made a mistake.
The only people who perceive a problem between Hill and Schuie these days are the media (who are keen to fan the flames in order to generate a story) and Schuie's fans (who seem happy to help the media).
The fact of the matter is that Schuie, following instructions from his team, made a mistake in overtaking in that location at that time. Not helped by poor wording of the rules, true. I also think the punishment was excessive in the circumstances - owing to the fact that the rules are a bit vague the best option would have been to revert him to his last lap position. But I'm not sure the rules allow for that either.
Had it been any other racing steward there'd have been calls for rules to be clarified etc. Just because it's Hill looking at Schuie it's automatically considered to be vengeful / vindictive. That says more about the people making those comments than it does about Hill and his relationship with Schuie in my view...
