Well he couldn't pit the same lap as Rosberg so he would have had to went in two laps earlier.

He could pit with DIR with no problem. Race destroyed by strategy, not my favourite thing. :mad:

MS has been quicker than NR for about the last 10 laps both on Inters & now Slicks.....shame he lost the position because the team pitted both drivers a lap late.

Edit : Most of the time gained is in the middle sector at least 0.5 secs there, MS into the 29s...

Massa is not helping to Michael speed, but he is still faster than two guys ahead.

Box,box now. They hear me!!!

Well I think I can predict the trolls on the scorecard thread....

MS was behind NR all race, he had another spin, and was going backwards from 5th all race.....zzzzz

In reality, MS was faster than NR every lap bar 1 from about lap 8 and he had a slide to avoid a crash as Massa did his usual turn in regardless move.

Merc really are toss, hugely disappointing again.

Gearbox problem(with 5th or 6th gear). Started with lower tyre pressure, this is why sliding.

Rosberg crushed Schumacher in every aspect of the weekend.

Schumacher slow in Q, slow in race, spin, broke the car. complete failure

Schumacher should retire he is embarrassing himself the team and F1 in general.

You know Slate Gray isn't as big a twat as his posts on this thread try to make out. Shame he can't resist trolling blatant falsehoods here.

MS wasn't slow in the race, read my post a few lines above... he was quicker many laps and how can the mechanical be his fault?

Foolish boy.

Even Verstappen could have repaired the gear box in the first outlap.

The DNF was very annoying, could have been a good race in the later stages considering the pace he showed early on. Real shame.

The car was a horrible today, though. Even the Toro Rossos and Saubers were on Rosberg's pace towards the end.

Can't believe it, seems Schumacher doesn't want to take a break, in interview he said that it's a shame that teams' factories have to be closed for 2 weeks and he wants to get working on a new update package for SPA. What a fighter.

MSC:

"We had a gearbox failure, we obviously need to understand details of the failure," he told BBC Sport. "After spinning and continuing, shifting up through the higher gears, we lost a gear.

"I obviously wanted to keep my position against Felipe and pushed hard, but in order to avoid contact I had to put the car into a spin.

"The contact would have been okay, I would have just lost a couple of seconds."

That's where he gets his joys! He loves the challenge. Was great seeing him touring the MGP factory, shaking hands with employees along the way.

Let's hope they get it right next year.

Here is the video of Schumi giving the factory tour.


Let's hope they get it right next year.


And what if they don't get it right next year? With this team I highly doubt that they will get it right! Seeing Schumi in the midfield for another year is going to be really tough. This is truly a dream turned into a nightmare!

here you have it ;)

Anyways, watching the replay of the start here: , bad quality but enough to see what happened and I'm really not satisfied with what Rosberg did there..Ok he defended his position, but Michael was still right behind him and then Rosberg cut the chicane(really unfair) to escape Michael who was fighting with ferraris, then Michael was passed by Alonso and that's how he lost contact with Rosberg.

It's the wrong time for a break for a teams that needs to keep working. Redbull deserve their break, their rest is about the tough get going when the going gets tough.

Lol, actually this time between the hungarian gp and belgium gp is supposse to be a break. At least everyone is saying about to take it, Nico too! The only exception I heard is Michael, and I respect that, that's why he's the king, a true champion.

13 years ago, he was at Enzo's house, testing the ferrari right up until Spa, chasing the tenths, his drive showed that determination, and his rage at how his drive ended, showed the amount of emotion that dnf inflicted on him.

Now we have a forced break, no testing,. he can't do nothing until he arrives at Spa, it's just not the same in terms of preparation. He would badly want to test tyres and check set up solutions, that's the work he was used too, so this break is weird to him more then others. He wants to understand, and that gearbox issue before a forced holiday is not the type of thing any team would leave without looking into, but they got no choice, it's not ideal for that team and himself at this point. I think he's more worried about arriving at Spa with issues left dangeling from Hungary.


This all shows how incrediably important designing a good car is from the start with these rules, catch up seems very hard now, ferrari took ages this year and last year to work solutions. Schumacher and Ferrari were very good in working hard to find speed during the season, now with budget, time and testing restrictions, everything points to having things more right before the season starts, Michael's powers with testing/feedback and analysis for the team were gone even before he arrived at his first race in 2010.

I think Massa take the corner tightly and Michael take the corner tightly too(he didn't have other choice or to hit him), but he carry more speed and his back side start to slide.

Michael will have 20th anniversary in Formula One at Spa. Hope for good result.

Actually Michael said that he didn't want to hit Massa so he span deliberately to avoid the crash.
