What a dismal lap time. MASSIVE gap to Rosberg. I dont know why bothers. I really dont.
One of the reasons why I think current qualifying 3 sessions is not MS's best sessions this and last year, is mainley because he has concentrated on race set up regardless of whatever happens on qualifying, he cannot with the curernt rules/tyres/cars, tinker with the car on saturday, while having a car on sunday, because it don't make sense to just to be fast like Rosberg without comprimising race set up, Rosberg will go for qualifying regardless, maybe choice, or maybe the way his set up/style goes. Schumacher's race pace could of easily delivered the same or more points then Nico in the last races.
If Rosberg has race pace that reflects his quali time, which it didn't in the last races, then Schumacher's done a bad job this weekend, but like previous weekends. qualifying is not that important with these rules, and it might actually be the best strategy for the team, and it seems if Rosberg wants or just his style is to be jarno trulli like and fall back or sometimes stay stationary in the race, while Schumacher moves forward and rarely stays stationery, that's the pattern of the season with these current rules/cars.
I think their both doing their best job, they are going in different ways, but can get similar results, and or in case of Michael be threatening higher positions by the end of the race, which is what counts, saturdays right now for this team are not the end of the world. Beat Renault and consolidate 4th place, on target.
