Actually, unless you know the F-1 rules, it doesn't matter how many years
you have raced! There are rules against what Rubens did. You are allowed to
change direction to defend your position *once* and once only - and then
again once to take your racing line for the corner.

Rubens, as mentioned, swerved *at least* 3 times - that's once too many! He
darted across Michael's bow, then back to block Ralf, then back to the
right, then the last terminal swerve in front of Ralf again. That makes 4
doesn't it?

Anyone have it on tape to verify this? The best view is from the driver's
