Simply a Midpack Racing incident with Michael being on the short end of the stick. Attribute it too poor qualifying more then anything else. Puncture leading to floor damage means it's pretty much useless to draw any conclusions.
The only thing that is obvious is that Nico seems slightly more on pace then Schumi again this year...
The only thing obvious about W02 is that it didn't come prepared to play ball... poor reliability with KERS is one thing but .. their lack of speed was way more then what the KERS and DRS would add to the qualifying and Nico's race preformance.
Looks like it's gonna be a long year for them unfortunately. Lotus-Renault didn't look all that great either. Looks like another 2 team race for the cup year playing out RBR vs. McLaren with Ferrari being a dark horse that could.. maybe.. come into the mix.
