Another horrible quali performamce and another very creative excuse from Michael:
I didn’t have an ideal fast lap as I tried to use the slipstream from Lewis but then he locked up in the second chicane, which made me lock up too.
So if Lewis crashed out in second chicane, that would made Schumi to crash too
? "He hit the wall, which made me hit the wall too"
. Maybe their minds are somehow connected, so something "made him" to do that
Anyway, he's 2 tenths behind Renault, which was 5 tenths slower than Mercedes, as was proved in Q2, so overall he's at least 7 tenths off car's potential. How long Mercedes can tolerate such a pathetic quali pace? And don't tell me fables about one driver focusing on quali, while other has a set-up for race, that's nice fable, but as proved by leaders at Red Bull, McLaren or Ferrari, who are dominant both during Saturday and Sunday, it's only true in dreams, not in a real world.
