Let's address your points one by one, shall we?
ohh dear as much id love not wasting time on this,ill give it another try..
MS: My experiences at the last two races - especially in Melbourne - makes me think that we have been a little too conservative with the set-up for qualifying. We had a very good car on Saturday morning, but started to worry that the set-up might be a bit too aggressive for the race. With hindsight, it wasn’t the best decision. So that is something I will do differently here.
again and again and again,ill point to you that this wear issue that he was worried about was not because his style causes increases degradation,this is because they had to decrease the rear traction too much to stop the car understeering.form bbc
Team principal Ross Brawn confirmed that his team had under-reacted to the new-for-2010 narrower tyres and as a result, the car's dynamics had resulted in a naturally understeering car.
It was a vicious circle: The car's weight distribution is wrong, according to Brawn, so bring weight forward and work the fronts harder to get the car to Schumacher's liking. But as a result the rear is light so traction is poor, which means the rear slides and wears out the tyres.
One element that has caused Schumacher difficulty, as Sutil suggested, is tire degradation. Schumacher himself noted this after Shanghai. He said that for much of the race he was tentative about pacing himself, as he wasn’t sure of how quickly the tires would degrade. As it turned out, largely because of conditions, the tires went off very quickly. He’d also been having grip issues in dry conditions, especially in the exits of slower corners, because of tire wear.
ths same thing i wrote above(and have been writing for the last three pages).NOBODY SAID TYRE WEAR HASNT BEEN AN ISSUE FOR SCHUMACHER THIS YEAR.its your repeated failure to understand that its was the balance issues that were causing the rear tyre degradation .from the same article.. Even Nico Rosberg, who can handle this car better, complained of high tyre degradation on the intermediates.
schumacher naturally suffers from more tyre wear because of his driving technique.a hamilton/vettel ,logic prevailing,would suffer from the same rear tyre wear if put inside a mercedes.
what more do u want me to explain???..seriously.
rear slides,rear slides,rear slides!!!...do u even know what that term means???...ive explained this before as well,its not like shumacher is doing something that nobody does.
for the millionth time,this is not because his style does that
...for heaven's sake try to learn and get and perspective.
So here you clearly believe that qualifying pace has no relationship with the race. That set-up for qualifying is, in no way, compromised for the race......
i never say said/meant that..youre whole idea was that it was schumi's driving style that made him wear his tyres so badly at china.,surely youre implying he was driving with an aggressive setup ,that made the tyres wear a lot more than rosberg..u cant have it both ways.either he had a conservative setup,no speed in quali but saves tyres in races..or he goes aggressive and shreds his tyres..but shouldnt he be showing his normal quali speed when he does that???......and the quote u posted even manages to negate your own theory.he said theyd been too conservative with the setups in the first two races...surely implying they planned to have more aggressive setups for the coming weekends,right?...well tyre wear at china was the brutal ,showing perhaps they did do that.and where was he in the qualifying speed with respect to rosberg?..
its your failure to understand the most basic things.when your struggling with understeer,youre going to struggle.be it qualifying or the race.
There is evidence here that it is tyre wear that is the problem that Schumacher is having to contend with. So, pray - oh great lord of F1 knowledge - what, exactly, has been uneducated about my views? Is it that sliding the rears will result in higher tyre wear? Is it that tyre management factors into qualifying results as much as in the races? Is it in believing that Schumacher is suffering from tyre wear problems? Please, do tell.
what more do u want me to explain???..seriously.
rear slides,rear slides,rear slides!!!...do u even know what that term means???...ive explained this before as well,its not like shumacher is doing something that nobody does..amateur kart racers learn to use controlled rear slides for heaven's sake!
,specially thru the faster stuff...its a technique a lot of these top guys bring from karting experience.....but why would u know anything about this????
and again i ask u,why readers of this thread have to suffer for the fact that you have never ever stepped into a basic go-kart and dont know jack about the stuff youre bringing up?..
