Sorry but MSC drive was not that great, it was the fact his straightline speed was the same as Lewis' with tow and DRS, and the occaisional chop and weave.

Yup. The start was good the defending was shamful to the point of needing a radio spanking from Ross. Schumacher always has to go to far, it is his nature.

And wasn't Lewis' car much faster in the corners? :wave:

Shumi's car wasn't 'inferior' where it mattered though, was it? Shumi was consistently three, four and even five tenths of a second faster than Lewis in the first sector while Lewis' car was bouncing off the rev-limiter for half the straight. Lewis seemed to lack KERS as well, since he didn't use it on the straight whereas Shumi did.

I would actually hesitate to say that it was Lewis' car that was inferior.


Lewis was using KERS at other parts of the lap. He was much faster in the 2nd and 3rd sectors. He just did not get the job done, that's it.

Sorry for spoiling your love of the race. It's a pity you felt that MS ruined LH's race. It's a shame you feel that so strongly you have to come here & bitch about how his car setup allowed him to make a good show. It's not surprising you're referring to "driving", your hero has given you a crash course (lol) this season!

MS did manage to take LH after the safety car, then hold him off for many laps in a slower car - you can argue he had an advantage on the straights & I'd agree, but JB managed to get past quickly... why couldn't your god?

Guess LH may have some respect for at least 1 driver on the grid after today !

Did you see how much track schumacher used in every single lap?
He used every centimetre to run away from hamilton to have that little advantage...

Bravo, Michael, fantastic race! Absolutely stellar drive! To keep a car so much quicker behind for so long and overtaking people left right and centre, brilliant job. Love it when he just rrrrubs it in when you least expect it like that. :D

Sorry fellas but Michael was just "breaking the tow".

Good to see the car having an advantage at some parts of the track, balanced out with their horrible cornering.

Brilliant race by MSC, almost equal to Rosberg on points now. Pretty much the story of this season.

Great drive from Schumi, keeping Lewis behind him for so long in a much faster car, albeit racing pretty hard at times, was very impressive. Imagine what Schumi could have done here with a competitive car?

Exactly
What a fantastic race!

Schumy would have loved to b on podium at monza!
Truly great race.....if only he had car equal or close to the top 3


Great race great spirit and decent speed i think.
If this keeps up 2011 will be a successful season for Michael imo. Apart from some disappointing mistakes which are now gone i think he's shown some great pace! Forza Schumi! :clap:

and btw GTFO EJ and BBC..

JB pass MS when his tyres were gone. JB save his tyres upto this point. And Michael was going to the pit,so no point to be hard.

Yeah, because he'd had so many penalities (or should that be reprimands) for his past weaving incidents...

He moved more than once on only the one occasion that I saw. He placed his car very well in the braking zone and didn't barge into anyone. He still should have been punished for 'moving' again though, that is for sure. But otherwise, very good fun to watch.

Just heard Ross talking on BBC, Charlie Whiting did speak to him about asking MS to leave room, hence Ross' instructions to MS. He also said that MS was talking on the radio and hit the rev limiter (mistake on MS' part) that let Hamilton through.

why would he use his kers if he was already bouncing off the limiter with the slipstream?


yes, the mercedes was very fast on straights...but was slow in corners and as an overall package I think it's easy to pick the mclaren. probably short geared, but still set the fastest lap

Even after Lewis got passed, MSC's pace was pretty good. All in all, an encouraging weekend but it was to be expected that the W02 would be decent around here.

Exactly, reminded me of spa 1995 :up:
Last race Nico could not defend , he was passed by everyone in few laps
Here with two drs zones and on a track where it's slipstream fiesta , he managed this fantastic race :up:

If there's a wet messed up race, yes. If not, probably not, it requires too many of the top 6 cars to crash out.

Must be why Ross felt the need to publicly chastise Schumacher on the radio, that or the FIA made Ross an offer he could not refuse, "tell Schumacher to smarten up or we will penalise him." What other motive could Ross have had for humiliating Schumacher that way with millions of fans listening?

Yes and no. He had a great start up to 3rd, then was passed by Hamilton just before the Safety Car was announced.

no the car isnt capable of fighting for anything more thana forth or fifth position imo, maybe suzuka is the only other chance at a top 5 position again this year

I am a through and through Ferrari fan.I became that because of Michael.It was a bad race for Ferrari but Schumacher's race just gave me joy.He is one of the few racers out there and what a pleasure to see him giving it his all showing that form is temporary,but class is permanent.I bet Hamilton's wish of racing Schumacher has been fulfilled now.

The message was not primarily for Michael, it was to make sure no idiot steward got any funny ideas.

You will note that Ross told him to leave room into ASCARI, not where Hamilton was whining about him blocking at all. Ross was saying to the world and stewards that (as seen with Button) a sensible clean overtake in the right place would not be blocked in any way.

And in the end it wasnt.

Lewis' daft overlap into the right hander was not remotely on, he should have done what even Bruno Senna had the sense to do with Buemi and backed out of it and come back later.

Who do you suggest it was the guy that finished a 1/4 of a minute in front of Schumacher at the end when it mattered.
All Schumacher did was get in the way of the real race with his trade mark goonish style
Shame Schumachers unsporting driving robbed us of the Alonso Hamilton Button clash we should have had, which would have been a taste treat of top professional racing, hard racing while at the same time respecting their competitors by not resorting to amateurish double block moves
