There are many controversies surrounding Schumi's tactics on the track and two of the most notorious instances have featured spectacular crashes. In 1994, Schumi went into the final race of the season just one point ahead of Damon Hill. With Schumacher's car just apparently damaged, Hill went on to overtake him on lap 35. Schumacher took himself and Hill out of the race by crashing into him, and therefore taking the drivers championship. The move was subtle, so it could not be proved if he had caused the mayhem.
The second incident happened in 1997, which had the British, and more surprisingly, the Italian and German media sending out rotweilers on Schumi's scent trail. The ace went into the final race of the season just one point ahead of Jacques Villeneuve, and with Villeneuve passing him on the 48th lap, Schumacher turned point blank into the side of his car. Villeneuve did actually finish the race, in 3rd spot and taking four points in the process. With Schumacher not able to finish the race due to damage, Villeneuve was crowned World Champion. Schumacher eventually had all of his results for the year disqualified by the Formula 1 officials for this kamikaze act.
