The facts occurred on July 5, 1992 in Magny-Cours. Schumacher felt Senna's anger after hitting the back of his car at the start of the French GP. Under a subsequent red flag, Senna sought the German to speak with him, not caring about the presence of television cameras.

In the race held at Silverstone on July 10, 1994, Schumacher advanced to Damon Hill during the formation lap. The race commissioners decided to sanction him with a 'stop and go' that the German would not meet within the given period of five laps. By not doing so, they showed him the black flag that disqualified him. Six laps after the black flag, Schumacher entered the pits to complete the penalty and would even finish the race in second position. Benetton argued that everything was a misunderstanding, although they failed to convince the FIA ​​that he punished the team with a million dollars fine, while Schumacher was sanctioned with two runs.

Looking ahead to the 1994 Australian GP, ​​held on November 13, Schumacher had a point of advantage over the British driver Damon Hill. Halfway through the race (lap 36), Schumacher's Benetton left the track, ran into a wall damaging the suspension, and in the next corner he collided with Hill's Williams. Both cars were damaged and could not continue the race. The FIA ​​did not consider that this maneuver was intentional. As a result, the German was proclaimed world champion.

During the European Grand Prix, played at the Jerez Circuit on October 26, 1997, Schumacher collides with Jacques Villeneuve's Williams and is subsequently excluded from the World Cup, losing all points earned. Schumacher had a single point of advantage over Villeneuve (78 to 77), who performed a maneuver to pass Michael, and at the moment he surpasses it inside the Dry Sack curve, the German closes inwards and impacts with Villeneuve. The car of 'Schumi' bounced and got off the track, suffered damage and had to retire. Instead, Villeneuve continued, finishing in third position and winning the world title. The FIA ​​appreciated Michael intentionally in that maneuver and sanctioned him with the cancellation of the 78 points he had achieved in that championship.

During the Belgian Grand Prix, held at Spa-Francorchamps on August 30, 1998, Schumacher was leading and on his way to his sixth victory of that campaign; however, in a curve of lap 25 the unexpected happened. The Scot David Coulthard, who was marching in eighth place, was going to lose a lap with Schumacher. The spray on the track complicated his vision and the deceleration of the Scottish car did not give him time to maneuver to avoid it. The German's right front wheel collided with the left rear of the Briton's vehicle and flew. Schumacher headed straight to the pits and abandoned the race that Damon Hill would win with Jordan, the first of the Silverstone team. After parking his car, he took off his helmet and headed straight to McLaren's box to confront him and say, "Are you trying to kill me ?!"

In the GP of Great Britain, held on July 12, 1998 in Silverstone, Schumacher was sanctioned with a ‘stop and go’ for passing Alexander Wurz with the safety car on the track; the team decides to fulfill the penalty in the last lap to maximize the difference and ensure victory, because the distance from Mika Hakkinen was enough to pass the goal through the pitlane even with the penalty. The commentators did not understand who won until, after a few moments of doubt, the television label marked Schumacher as the winner.

During the Austrian Grand Prix in the A1-Ring, on May 12, 2002, Rubens Barrichello, who was in first position, was forced by the team to let Schumacher pass a few meters from the finish line so that he could claim victory. Later, at the 2002 United States Grand Prix, Schumacher let Barrichello pass to return the "favor." The scandal caused by both events caused the FIA ​​to modify the regulations to prohibit team orders "that interfere with the outcome of the race."

Although this mishap was the result of an ambiguous wording of the regulation, the commissioners sanctioned him with 20 seconds, causing him to lose his position.

Then, Schumacher made a strange maneuver, stopping the car a few centimeters from the barrier in Rascasse, the penultimate curve of the circuit, preventing Alonso to draw well and therefore, remove the pole. The FIA ​​sanctioned Schumacher forcing him out last, while Alonso left first.

In the Hungarian GP, ​​held on August 1, 2010 at the Hungaroring, his former Ferrari teammate, Rubens Barrichello, was hunting Schumacher in the final laps for the tenth position that awarded a point. The Brazilian saw an opportunity on the finish line once he approached, but Michael cornered him in such a way against the wall that it could have dire consequences. Barrichello called him "crazy" and asked for the black flag for the German from the radio (immediate disqualification). At the end of the race, the pilots who had finished 10th (Barrichello) and 11th (Schumacher) were called to testify for the incident. The commissioners decided that Schumacher lost ten positions on the starting grid of the next GP.
