P10, hope he will start good today. Some times Williams car don't start very well. Maybe he needed to use harder tyres for the race,like Button.


MS developing further backwards, and that on a track that should have naturally suited him. Instead of three tenths backdrop to his teammate he is now already at four tenth - well, maybe it´s the length of the Suzuka circuit...

Last two Qualy he is in top 10? Not like other 5-6 Qualy before that. Michael said his f-duct is not working.

not working "as expected" its never been one of the most efficient anyway though...

depends on the track aswell to how the airflow interacts with the rear wing i guess the more basic variants will struggle wtih crosswind etc

Star Sports commentators were claiming that Marcedes requires MS to be up to speed next season to be able to drive in the team in the final contract year of 2012. Any links to such a story some place?

If only the car would have the pace and if he would do better in quali.

Races like this give confidence for '11.

Rosberg controls Schumacher on older tyres, it seems....a defining moment for Michael if he does not manage to get past.

What they say to Michael from the box? Don't overtake? No team order Michael, but don't overtake. I guess team is happy with the situation now. Nico can get 6th in WDC? Who is slowing who now? Michael in the moment can drive with 1:36.5 or even lower. But ,noooo.

He can't really barge past him. If there is a collision it won't look good.

Rosberg should have yielded, but oh well.

Eh? Nico didn't need to let him by. Schumacher had a go, Nico defended cleanly, that's racing. They don't gain anything exta by having Michael ahead.

He will not, it was team order not to. He lower his pace by 1,5s after Nico crash.
He was keeping Nico back in this race. But, if Nico wasn't crashing they both would be passed by Koba.

Schumacher dominated Rosberg this race, going to savour this after the idiots on this forum were able to savour his poor performances. His race pace was much better than Rosberg's and he made a great move on Ruben's in the same breath as his team-mate bullsed up a move.

he probably would have caught hamilton who lost 3rd gear and probably wouldnt have been able to accelerate anywhere near as fast as the mercedes out of the hairpin

check how he gaisn 1.2seconds on hamilton in the middle sector !

at the end schumacher did a 1:34.8 while a few laps previous behind rosberg he was doing alot of 1:36.8

We apparently have a vey different view of domination. Michael was very good - better than expected but a domination...

If finishing in front of your teammate who had a big accident consoles you, be my guest :)

What a hilarious race. Michael pretty much owned Rosberg today...isn't this also the first track that both drivers didn't drive at last season?


Looks like the Schumacher fans have been proven right,after all. 41 and three years out and he's still capable of performances like that: I really don't care now even if he has a string of DNFs all the way to the end of the season.

For sure if Mercedes has let Schumacher past Rosberg Schumacher would have had a very good chance of an ailing Hamilton. Hamilton was horribly slow from slow corners, horridly.

Rosberg far too fragile to disrupt. He has a good mental state and is performing well, Mercedes couldn't tell him to move over or they might trigger a downward trend...

Schumacher's best race of the season! Yet certainly no domination - Nico controlled Michael till his suspension broke...

Dominated on pace, there wasn't a moment Rosberg ever had Schumacher's pace today, nowhere near.

I know there is no 'ifs' and 'buts', but Merc was stupid to pit MS when they did, while he was still capable of going faster than Rosberg on the soft rubber. If they would have waited 3 more laps, MS would have been ahead, and maybe he could have even caught Hamilton in the end...

well the call to pit michael when he was still extending his gap to nico shows where the team focus has gone. then to allow nico to keep him back when lewis injured comes back to bite them in the butt.

nico was doing well given his start but today michael was the quicker

interesting that his 2 best races at 2 of most difficult. not bad for the old dog. that'll put a spring in his step

Oh yeah, if anything such races prove that Michael has not 'lost it'; he is well capable of racing with the best. And the so-called 'tyre excuses' may not be unsubstantiated after all. But the man is a Suzuka maestro.

Solid performance today. Makes u wonder what would have happen if he managed to qualify ahead of all Williams, FI and Sauber cars and stayed ahead of them after turn 1 consistently.

He started doing 1.35s right after Nico's car failed. We need more of this from him!

Sure, but that still does not explain why they pit him there. A few laps more and Rosberg would have never seen MS in this race.

because as many drivers have said , you need 2 be over 2 seconds faster to overtake , schumacher was clearly only 1.5-2seconds quicker.

all the times when rosberg has aparently been held up my michael we neversaw rosberg show pace whilst behind like schumacher did today
