Great to see Schumi racing at the front again.
Very enjoyable to see him keeping Lewis behind with some hard racing, he schooled him today.
It's going to be fun next year if the Mercedes is a match for the current top teams.

Niki Lauda just said on RTL that MS drove a perfect race and maximized his car's potential. His duel with Lewis was awesome and pure racing. Lauda should know...



:rotfl: wait until he says something against MS......

I am no fan of Lewis Hamilton far from it but he showed maturity beyond his years when dealing with the slow but unsporting and unpredictable Schumacher. Hamilton dispatched the desperate wanderer and finished well down the road but his race was ruined by having to wait of the FIA to tell Ross to tell Schumacher to stop being a Dick. By the time Schumacher got the message any chance for Hamilton to get on the podium was ruined


Nope, still not succeeding, this is turning into an epic fail. Just give it up for today Slate, you clearly can only repeat the same BS over & over again to no effect.

That his comments are usually wild of the mark and complete bollocks doesn't mean he can't occasionally get it right :smoking:

What's next, maybe I photoshopped them :lol:? No, the simple truth is I'm right and you're wrong, and it was you who called me a liar without any evidence :down:.



That is very simple math, so if you can't do it, I will. Average speed of 1:23 lap at Monza is 251 kph, so on average in 3 seconds they cover 210 metres. But with the speed on straights (320 kph) 3 seconds equal to 266 metres.



What the hell are you talking about?

I'm sorry to interrupt your party about yesterday but have you followed live telly? That gap to Hamilton was NOT three seconds after the first sector, more like 1.5. Whatever it was on start/finish, it doesn't matter. Simply because you cannot calculate everything happening during the lap itself. Everybody including the commentators agreed Hamilton would hold him up if he'd go out of the throttle. And it happened. Not to earth shattering amounts of time but like tenths.

deviating from the racing line once and returning to it is fine , but be careful because lewis is crying and throwing his toys out of the cockpit again , we wouldnt want him to see red and take another car out of yet another race.

That was a battle I really enjoyed. Lewis was throwing down one attack after the other through different parts of the circuit, but the old dog always had the answer each time. Too bad for Rosberg, I'd fathom a guess that he would be charging through the field towards the end of the race with the extra set of softs !

Same here, I was watching on the BBC and had flashbacks to years ago when Schumi was schooling another one time British WDC.
Looking forward very much to a competitive 2012 MGP and an aggressive Schumacher.

He has shown to Massa what he had to do. Schumacher would be a perfect team mate for Alonso. Alonso - Schumacher, the perfect line up, fast, experimented, and dirty when its necessary

I think MS didn't push much after last pit stop? He was just conserved the engine. Gap to Massa was enough, he could go even slower I think.

The desperate wanderer ended up in front of Hamilton in a slower car. How is it that such a thing could happen?

I'm a Lewis fanatic and a Schumi supporter,and thank god for those two or I'd have turned the TV off!
:wave: The title has been sealed since race1,the least we can hope for is a battle like today for the remaining races.

Schumacher: "It was an exciting race today, both for me and I think for all of our fans, and that is why I am happy. The fighting against Lewis was big fun, and my mirrors seemed to be very small at times. We are both known for driving on the limit, and that is what we did. I had to make my car as wide as a truck, and had to stretch the possible as much as I could, but in the end, as expected, he was still faster."

After the race, asked if Schumacher’s driving had been fair, Hamilton said “Yeah, that’s racing.” He said his car’s straight-line speed made it hard to pass the Mercedes: “We just lost a little bit on the straights and that’s why I couldn’t pass Michael.”

And most importantly they occupied 80%* of TV time. Vettel won and he was on screen for all of 6 minutes.

It was a good battle, a hard but fair one. That’s why we all love drivers like Senna, Mansell, Schumacher, Alonso or Hamilton.

Driver of the race again!

Well done Michael.

Hang on, I agree that Shumi was spectacular at Spa, but 'the driver of the race' at Monza? He started eighth, was gifted three positions when Petrov, Massa and Webber had collisions which promoted him to fifth. That position, given that his team-mate was also involved in a crash, was about the worst he could do, and he finished... fifth. It's not like anyone, least of all you I suspect, expected Alguersuari to finish ahead of Shumi, and that was his closest rival.

I don't think so, he made the position before the collision, watch the replay. Started 8th and got to 4th.

Yeah, he was gifted by being in front of them.

Go away.

I think he actually even overtook Hamilton but the SC was deployed at the same time and he had to give the place back too.

Schumacher said his driving was within the rules: “I felt I did exactly what I was supposed to do and as far as I understand there was no request for me to see the stewards so I guess everything is in order.”

After the race, asked if Schumacher’s driving had been fair, Hamilton said “Yeah, that’s racing.”

Hamilton added: “It was a good race. I got some points and I finished, so I can’t really complain.”

That is sportive and fair play Lewis ! :clap:

Are we speaking about Monza 2011 ? In 2011 Schumacher was already in front of Massa and Button at Turn 1.

Fantastic drive from Schumacher today, and quite an exciting duel with Hamilton as well. Now if Merc can just get their car sorted, we might see more awesome battles near the front such as this one. :D
