    Defacers turned motor sport fans yesterday in a protest against the
    controversial decision to gift Michael Schumacher victory at the
    Austrian Grand Prix.
    Ferrari-group.com was defaced by a group called S4t4n1c_Souls after
    the race with a profane message criticising Ferrari's management for
    ordering Rubens Barichello, who dominated the race, the make way for
    Schumacher on the last corner, handing him an undeserved victory.
    "BARRICHELO ROX FERRARI SUX," the message reads, in part. Defacement
    archive Alldas.org records eight attacks against Ferrari in recent
    Drivers have been handed victory before but the end of the race at the
    A1 ring was widely has sparked particular criticism because it was
    seen as a particularly cynical ploy, that went against any notion of
    sportsmanship in F1.
    The Ferrari team have been summoned to appear before the sport's
    governing body, the FIA (International Automobile Federation), on 26
    June. Schumacher may be docked points for Ferrari's tactics during the
    race, the BBC reports.
