#2 That\'s Not The Weather, That\'s A Reflection Of Damon Hill\'s Mood

Schumacher won the 1994 title despite clobbering the wall in the title-deciding race at that year's Australian Grand Prix. He was battling Damon Hill for the 1994 Drivers Championship when he dropped the ball on lap 36 and the only place he was heading was the unforgiving wall.

Luckily the car could still move although it was seriously battered and bruised and then Schumacher did the unthinkable.

As Hill passed the limping Benetton, Michael turned into the Williams and took both cars out of the race. The Briton was hopping mad but it was too late, title to the German. 3 years later it was déjà vu as the German tried the same trick but on a different victim - Jacques Villeneuve. Unfortunately the FIA was ruthless this time and straight away gave the title to the Canadian. Moral of the Story: Never do the same dirty trick twice.

Verdict: Naughty
