If it had been Hamilton or Button defending Schumacher, they will would have called it 'brilliant' or 'inspired' defending. But they seem to suggest that Schumi was being a bit reckless or breaking the rules (which I disagree with).
As always, they are a bit bias towards the McLarens and harsh on the new teams (HRT, Virgin, Lotus). Don't forget most of them has a bit of a sour grape from Schumi in their F1 past...

As for Schumi "pushing" Hamilton to the grass, well, when Vettel passed Alonso, he was squeezed to the grass too!
No one said a word about throwing Alonso to the stewards. Of coz, throwing your fellow racers to the grass in Monza could be quote dangerous in 200 mph...but they know what they are doing!

Hamilton and Schumi was total classic and yes, some moves by schumi are a bit borderline that's why Charlie Whiting warned Ross Brawn don't do it again. No need to make a big fuzz out of it.
I think a warning is sufficient, a reprimand and penalty is not necessary. Unless he pushed the other driver to the wall like Hungary last year.
