The DRS issue presented itself once again for the Mercedes, and Schumacher's braking was affected and he hit Kobayashi. Not his fault, he even said he wasn't trying to pass KK at the time. It doesn't make him incompetant, as he put in a strong drive and came back through the field in the points - overtaking lots of drivers despite losing time with the broken wing and the Stop/Go penalty.
You get the sense that Schumacher is back up to speed now and only Nico's clean racing and lack of drama is keeping him ahead of Schumacher. Schumacher is really going for it these days. That's what defined his first career and I believe will bring him success this year also. I can't wait for Suzuka and Spa or other wet races this year.
At the end of the day, I think his adventures don't matter when the car is shit, at the moment Mercedes are in a lonely league of their own -the front runners are too far up ahead and the rest of the midfield is a bit further behind- at least he's pushing to the limit in a bad car, still better than some others that are unable to handle on the limit stuff.
If you want a love-in with no distractions from present reality, create your own forum and control memberships. Dead easy these days.
