Nico could have won the race. :well:

NR overtook Lewis just before crashing, which was ahead od Alonso in the restart after the tire change for inters round.

I know this is MS thread but it seems silly how some people conveniently forget that a part of Michael´s good result were due to Webber´s ability to control a racing car. Yes, Michael collected but...

Hmmm, he couldn't have... both Mercedes made BIG setup changes on the grid for a wet track, which is why once the track dried more Schumacher wasn't really making up ground on the big teams up ahead.

Your point is ?? Your acting like its not normal for people to move up a place when the person in front has an issue ... Dont come in here trying to troll.. Alonso Hamilton and Massa also benefitted from others misfortune today .. Do you want to take a bash over at their threads ?

This complete statement is irrelevant to this thread which loudly calls itself "Michael Schumacher" thread. You should go and post this on N.R thread.

Schumacher didn't make a mistake, Webber did... (Forget Rosberg was taken out, we can meet in the middle there)

Are you going to go into every driver thread and moan about every single driver who performed well and point out how they gain a place because Webber made an error all on his own and crashed out?

I refuse to believe that MGP did any huge setup changes for wet conditions (certainly not any more than any other team). MS pace actually got better towards the end of the race and it looked more like he saved his intermediates right after his stop to have an advantage towards the end of the race. Most cars around him got slower in the last few laps - only FA and LH were faster.

Not bad today from the old boy.

Yes he did very well, the car is improving Michael is finding his form again so with the Pirellis and the MGP car a bit more to his liking 2011 could prove to an awesome year. :up:

I can't quite work out this idiototic post ... So it's Webber's fault that Schumacher displayed superior skill over Webber and didn't make a mistake like he did or something??? :confused:

Nice moves by Schumi and Rosberg - do the Merc have rain set-up? Probably their understeery nature helps them

I can tell because this is a really good 'well sounded in logic' post of the highest order.

yes, just Michael collected. No one else. :rolleyes: It's the usual crap from people. If he does poorly, he's crap, if he does well it's either the car or he 'collected' due to the faults of others. How about he's had a very disappointing season but drove a great race today. Is that so hard to type???

Can somebody imagine what would happen if Michael hit today somebody like Webber hit Nico? Preferably Rubens. Such thing could be epic, Michael will be Public Enemy number 1 again. But, when it is Webber there is not problem? Double standards?

Nico could have won the race? So could Yamamoto if everybody else crashed out.

Besides, it is Nico's fault that Mark Webber's race finished, if he wasn't there then Mark wouldn't have hit him. So there, Nico's fault that both are out of the race(!)

No problemo. Michael did well today. I´d say that if Webbo could´ve driven like all the other big guns, Michael would´ve ended up in P6 tops. There are more than a few posters who are so blindly in love with all things MS that hey are already blaming Nico for the incident and thus hoping that this will somehow glorify their beloved race driver :confused:

Well, IMHO Michael has at best been quite alright this season and at worst embarrassing - his younger teammate has probably against expectations beaten him fair and square. I personally found Norby´s comments about the machinery not having been equal downright obnoxious.

Id go more down the road of what if Micheal had put in a performance like Button. He would of been slated and told to retire for the millionth time this year.

Whats your problem? Can you actually move to a world of reality?

The race is finished, Webber crashed, Rosberg crashed, Vettle blew up - it's the same story there and about for every single GP thats been run in the entire history of the sport - get over it.

Did you see the "Is Kubica is the best driver" thread? Thats the Guy who Schumacher breezed past today and then the current WDC, I guess that was all luck as well you troll.

This quote today from the poster known only as BEYOND who apparently has a keyboard with no caps or shift provision...

rosberg retired after only 1 lap and a half. how can anyone say he was "on fire", he was challenging for the win etc. he did the very same schumi did that lap, drive fast and overtake one driver. other speculations about what he could have done, based on vague hypotesis with no support, are pointless. both mercs did very good at the start and were clearly very fast in the early stages, then schumi lost ground with the track drying so i think similar would happen to rosberg. but at the time they were on track, a very short time anyway, they were both excellent, so saying that rosberg was on another level today and stuff like that, are not proved neither based on anything valueble

Such as? Mercedes' podiums came in the first half of the season; since then they've gone backward compared to the top 3.

How would anything higher than a 4th position been possible today? Let me guess though, according to your logic, Rosberg would have lapped the entire field 3 times over, gone for a toilet break and still won the race?

They could get better result in Australia too if Alonso/Button didn't hit Michael. Michael was 4 places infront of Nico in the first corner. In Valencia the same thing Michael 3rd before team made their biggest mistake in 2010. And other races the same picture. Monaco. Canada(problem with Kubica when he was 5th, Nico out of top 10)

He is refering to today not the whole season which makes his comment even more daft that what you saw into it.

It seems MS is well known in North Korea, good to see him being a major player in the race for some entertainment.


Good to see some back to back consistency on 2 very challenging weekends, Suzuka challenge and North Korea. North Korea will go down as a epic gp, he can be proud of his part in it.

Now we have Brazil next, a track MS has driven and done very well in from the past. Qualifying eludes him this year, be it car set up comprimises, or concentrating on race knowing the car characteristics with its tyre is not going to bring out the best of him this year so he's making comprimises in set up to maximise other areas he may feel comfortable at. Fast corners are not the problem, the slow corners are, that's what Brawn said earlier in the year, it's odd to lose time in slow corners, but that's been his story this year.

Brazil is quite a landmark for MS, scene of his epic last ferrari drive in 2006, never thought he would return here. We are having a great end to this season.

Just say Korea.

I think it' a bit true that some of them may still think Schumacher is at Ferrari. Schumacher's stint with ferrar reached alot of people around the world who didn't follow f1 normally, or just being aware of it, his name is big enough in some parts to be connected with f1 for them, if you saw the bbc korea previews, the koreans were menstioning schumacher even when shown faces of other drivers in the title hunt, Schuey's name they know.

This is amazing, I saw the picture at first without looking at it in detail, it passed me by, looked again and I have to wait, if you made it, it's the best work of art for forumers of f1 in relation to Schumacher that's ever been posted on these forums in the last 10 years since I've been here.

Great work, very funny and talent well applied in Schumacher like fashion.

Don't be silly. If you saw the crash from the opposite angle you would have seen the right front wheel dangling in the air before Nico hit him - that means his left-rear suspension had collapsed.

One can argue that Rosberg could have done the same thing, in adition to making good use of his steering wheel. His car was not pointing in the wrong direction afterall.

I think like that too, we discussed it in the other thread(NvsM). Nico could try to avoid him with slowing or even stopping. He have time to react(4sec from Webber hitting the wall to Nico hitting him).

Solid race for Michael. Looking forward to Brazil! Couple more top 6 finishes will definitely serve as a good message to the stubborn people living in denial claiming he has no place in F1.
