Oh and to call Spain a drivers track is quite silly, that track is one of the most car-dependent tracks in F1.
Spain is a quite technical track that's ever changing day by day to set up, it's not as great as Spa/Suzuka sure, but it doesn't hurt MS has always done well there, infact scored decent points all his career there despite 2005, best at the track.
Or in another points has Schumacher done any good performance this season for you?
Enjoy the hate and your Sunday.
What exactly makes a drivers track? How is Spain or Spa anymore a drivers track than Albert Park or Monza?
(it's interesting that the so called "drivers tracks" like Suzuka normally have team mates lining up beside each other more often than at other tracks. Probably because the drivers tracks have more to do with car performance...)
It's all about the fast corners, the Suzuka S's are one of the finest sectors you can make a difference iwth all year. Schumacher doesn't have a problem with the fast corners this year in his struggle, it's the slow corners/breaking on some tracks that he's not enjoying with the current tyre/car comibination, I think that';s been very obvious. At Suzuka when you arrive in turn 1, it's fast, and your not coming to a full stop often at this track without having come out of a fast corner leading onto a straight, then breaking, that's the stuff real racers dig into.
Albert Park and Monza are challenges as well, but they don't have a Suzuka Ss first section and or Spa's fast corners, and fast corners, do I really have to educate you on the sport? Fast corners are were the top drivers really make the difference.
AND ALL TRACKS HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH CAR PERFORMANCE DOH! But not all drivers do well in the corners of the world especially the challenging fast ones..
