Branching off from the failures thread. Some conspiracies are speculation. Case in point; I honestly believe Ferrari sabotaged Eddie Irvine's chance of the title in 1999, even if only passively and even if he did have some bad races on his own merit. They didn't pay all of that money for Eddie Irvine to end the dry spell, it was destined to be Schumacher. I have no way of proving this but it's something I believe. However some do turn out to be true; the long suspected "Ferrari veto" did transpire to exist during the most recent Concorde squabbling. What other ones have you heard or read up about? - One which was definitely true is that the 1939 European Grand Prix season, which was cut short by WWII, was wrongly awarded to Hermann Lang by the Nazis instead of the points leader at the time Paul Müller for propaganda reasons. - When they were team mates at Ferrari, Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins were said to share winnings equally between them, excluding their other team mate Luigi Musso. Musso was very resentful of this, claiming that the two Englishmen were putting a wedge between him and themselves. Musso needed the prize money from the French GP because he was in debt and that's why he pushed so hard in the race and died in a crash. - After Johnny Herbert came within 0.4 of Schumacher's practice times at Argentina 1995 (Rd 02), he wasn't allowed to see Schumacher's telemetry any more. - Alonso/Hamilton in 2007? Something was going on there.
