Nick is much better there, 51,4 s when MS 52sec.

yea but compared to everyone around him hes alot slower.
michael seems a bit faster in the first and often the last sector which suggests hes running less downforce than rosberg.

im thinking mercedes decided to give ms more straightline speed so it would help him get up the grid quicker

I'm hoping he is also conserving his tyres a bit. Not sure if he can finish the race with only one more stop.

Even if MSC passes Rosberg, won't his softs be shot by the end of the race allowing Rosberg to repass?

At this rate Michael will be in the DRS zone in about 3-4 laps. I think Mercedes will tell Nico not to give him a hard time.

I'm worried about that too. But the track is more rubbered in that at the start of the race, that should helpthe tyres last.

I understand why the director isn't focusing on the battle, but I'd like to see more of it!

Falling back now. I think he's taken all the life out of the softs.

Still, 24th to 6th ain't too shabby.

I think if he start from the pole he couldn't finish in a better place with this car.

Like a lot of you I stayed worried the whole race but he did it! Thanks for the chat guys!!

I hope there are no accusations that Nico was told to let Michael past, he looked like he was defending to me. Michael was faster at the end. A great drive :up:

never thought he would come close finishing 5th in a dry race
in the end a very good weekend.
questionable if there would have been a better result possible without the problem yesterday but I think not

Yes, stunning! Nico starts 5th and finished 6th, MS starts last and finishes ahead of Nico in 5th. That says it all.

One of his best drives since his comeback! I doubt he would have been able to do much better even had he been able to qualify.

Supreme race on dry track by Michael!

24 > 5, that's quite stunning progress.

Truth be told, SC was a big + for this result, along with Hamilton's DNF and Massa's double pit-stop.

His 1st lap was amazing - he went all up to 14th place!

It's good too see master driving around Spa. Once again.

:)

F*ck yeah, the drive of a Maestro. Stellar drive to finish 5th ahead of Rosberg, he drove a steady, calm race, stayed out of trouble and made the passes when they mattered, solid performance. Finished best of the rest behind the front running pack of Red Bull, Ferrari, and McLaren, so there's not really much more he could have done starting from dead last. 10/10.

Wait until he hits trouble during Qualifying for the next race. There's a Parc Ferme in effect between Sat and the Sun, not much you can do to mess around with the cars..

Very impressed with his turnaround from yesterday, certainly his best dry race since his return, and nice to see him outpace Rosberg in the dry for once. :)

I think in some track - Monza, Interlagos - better tactic to let all option tyre to the race and use only the harder ones in qualy.

Looking now ,it was good decision. He get to early to the fastest guys, this is why he needed soft tyres. Perfect race for once.

Before the nonsense starts:


Nico - MS LAP 2 9.9 seconds
Nico - MS LAP 11 12.2 seconds

Both had 1 pitstop;


After the safety car, lap 15

Nico - MS Lap 15 3.2 seconds and Michael had new tyres.


Anyway, good drives for both drivers.

These numbers are hugely suspect.. the safety car didn't look to really significantly play into Michael's hands at all..

I call bullshit on your whole post. Once we have full lap time details the exact details of your dissembling should become clear.

What does this prove? Taking into account field spread and time lost in traffic and overtaking other cars Nico hadn't been able to pull out more of a lead over Schumi in the first 11 laps?

NR destroyed his soft tires on both stints which is why he lost out, he had a train behind him at the end of both his soft stints, both times MS was in that train making up time to him, even without a safety car it would have had the same ending.

So whoever whats to say that MS had an advantage at the safety car, NR had an advantage when his fu#$ing wheel didn't fall off on his outlap on Saturday. :rotfl:
