The cheater paying for his own cheating was a great moment not only for the Sport, but for all the humankind.
He tried to knock out Jacques, (only chance for him to be WC) but he was the one who got fucked up. Plus, for trying this stunt, FIA took out ALL of his points from the championship. Good old times when my fav team Williams made 1 and 2 in the driver championship with Villeneuve and Frentzen!
Whilst that was pretty poor form, Schumacher's efforts off the track that he didn't seek recognition for were deserving of a lot of respect. If people were actually aware I'm sure they would all have a completely different opinion of him.
