let´s say it´s a "unbelievable" coincidence that a certain person is on Michael´s side of the garage since yesterday and today a "mistake" happens that should not happen to any F1 team.

Clear does not deal with nuts and knots. He's a senior (and professional) team player.
He may be involved in curses though.
Technical mistakes and strange race decisions have not happened "since yesterday". It's their core business.

Saw Rubens popping into Schumacher's 20th anniversary celebrations earlier. Remember Schumi didn't go to Rubens' 300th celebs last year. #F1

The bolts were put on the wrong way so they slowly come loose rather than tighten up.

I was aiming it at Rubens and Lewis, but i hear Rubens popped in. I am sure Alonso will be there as the two of them seem to get on in recent years.

Why did you think Hamilton wouldn't have shown up? Is there some bad blood between them, as I always thought that there was mutual respect, with MS defending Hamilton on few occasions this year?

Well he's not actually said anything untoward in the press either, well anything that would cause bad blood between them. There was the "Dirty Driver" headline but that was completely taken out of context. The only thing I can think of is the "blocking" in the Spanish GP where Hamilton, as usual, became a bit excited.

ok, .... this is getting ridiculous....

more than half of michael's races, have had 'a glitch' occur.... and after today, i have to at least suggest, that perhaps Michael is being sabotaged...

its been tyre pressures, tyre temperatures, throttle suddenly failing in qualifying for one corner, car losing drive in another corner at a different event, and today, the wheel comes off..... this has happened more than 5 times this year.... and its getting a bit ridiculous, bordering on intentional

Cut this conspiracy theory. Do you think MGP would pay Michael milions in order to sabotage him?

This reminds me a lot of Barrichello´s or Irvine´s days while Michael was the number one driver. These things just happens. You make your own lucky.

not MGP, maybe some disgruntled british mechanic or engineer.. but its getting a bit ridiculous... more than half the races something goes wrong or faulty or falls off or stops working

Please, there are far too many drama queens posting conspiracy theories as to how MS is being sabotaged by the team. It is a run of bad luck, plain and simple and if you are worried that it's a matter of time before a 'problem' injures him then you are watching the wrong sport.....

you miss my point, its one thing being hurt in a crash, its quite another when someone in your own team is doing things that may endanger you.

Half? Perhaps. The other half he crashes out of his own free will and in all of the races he lacks raw speed and maturity compared to his teammate?

Well, in 2002, Rubens Barrichello had 6 mechanicall problems in the first 11 races and 4 mecanichal problems in qualifying. Not to mention Austria nor Brasil (RB had to race with a one year old car...) All this happened and Michael had not a single problem. I am sure you don´t even consider something absurd like you wrote above, do you?

So do you think this "someone" mysteriously appears in any number of teams when one driver gets what is BAD LUCK. :rolleyes:
Like he would ever risk getting caught, or the potential of a manslughter charge. Silly stuff from silly Schufans but to be expected given the quality of many arguments and excuses for the guy.

I agree that incident was just unfortunate for MS.

However, it was very unprofessional regarding the wheel nut (error or not) not to mention the consistent issues regarding KERS and DRS for both drivers. This is a champion team it is about time they got their act together.

Hello, just popped into this thread to say congrats to Michael for 20 years in F1. No matter how the race, the season or his career ends up, he's permanently got my respect. 20 years... wow.

How many other drivers just boast such long careers? (Time rather than number of races)

Well, Rubens has actually been in F1 longer if we take into account that Shumi was out for three years.

There are so many parts of the car that got tested during the testing era, and now that practice sessions/gp weekends are pretty much apart of the test, sooner or later, your going to get a collection of issues for a team/. Bizzare crash especially with the wheel coming off, it just shouldn't happen.
