No doubt about it - he is a wanker!
However, there are two issues that need to be raised from this incident:
Skaife had every opportunity to back off slightly and not gain an advantage in which case he wouldn't have been penalised. Either that or let Johnson past during the following lap.
The penalty of the stop-go is excessive and Ford runners have been badly done by in much the same way previously. The officials need to sort this out for next season. As much as I hate Skaife, a better option would have been imposing a flat one second per race lap penalty or similar to the finish times (i.e. 21 lap race = 21 seconds)
