Don't be surprised if Schumi's driving is a bit controversial this weekend, this is what happened during the drivers' meeting: http://twitpic.com/6wcsj9

:p

michael was on fumes and nico had enough fuel to finish the season and to the winter testing.michael also cheated and cut a few corners. taking that into account he's probably 1-1.5 sec slower than rosberg on pure pace and he needs to retire
there isn't any other explanation


I agree. I'm also pretty sure that Michael was using illegal traction control and has found a way to make his car faster by murdering puppies.

Deffo needs to retire and let someone else have a go  ;)

Good capture, then. :lol:

as I said, michael was surely on fumes and nico had fuel to run his car until the end of the winter testing
which is the only thing that can happen as we all know nico is faster


Incorrect. Rosberg was fuelled to the next Japanese GP.


Should be a good qualifying for a change, if there's no issues either the car.

Where does this 5000 Euros go? Does it go into someones back pocket? To the circuit? FIA? Towards dividents for officials?

I've always wanted to know as these fines are massively high to the average layman.

As far as I recall, these fines are paid by the team, not the driver himself. And it should go directly to the FiA in order to be used for studies on road and drivers' safety.

I think MS is missing the fact that he's not been the topic of discussion often enough in the driver's briefings! ;-) Time to set that right by starting to win again!

He also has anti-lock brakes and a button to defeat the rev limiter, active suspension, and anti-gravity.

He didn't get out for fast lap. Apparently if they didn't come out, Koba would be ahead of them in Q3, even without registering a lap. I thought that if they didn't set time in Q3 they would be left with their Q2 lap?

Mercedes are hopeless. When they know that they do not want to set fast lap but just come out to stay ahead of Koba, why didn't they come out earlier and leave it that late??? Idiots. Only because MS got past Hamilton (who was sleeping) that he was able to make it before the chequered flag.

EDIT: Just heard MS saying he was set to do a fast lap, which is strange because he could not have done better than 7th anyway.

They did the right thing. Any cars that haven't gone out are classified behind cars that took to the track, all cars that did head out but did not set a time are classified according to the car numbers. So when Koba went out I was hoping they'd get Michael out there, Petrov and Senna would then have been irrelevant, that's exactly what happened.

Only hope that was on a useless set of hard tyres, though.

Looking good for the race tomorrow, fingers crossed he has a clean race.

MSC didn't make it before the checkered flag. They left it late so they are not forced to do a lap if the others (renault etc...) went out before them. It was some sort of a waiting game between those teams at the bottom of top 10.

webber (6th) time was 1 sec faster then MS's Q2 time, so i guess it was the right choice to make
MS only pilot having 2 sets of fresh softs from the top 10 :up:

In that case it's a botch up. Wasted set of softs and wasted effort. All they had to do was really just send him out for a warmup and head back in, he would automatically have been 7th. Not a chance in hell the Mercedes could've bothered the Red Bull in 6th, what was the point?

But they're not that fresh, because he intended to do a lap and so they've done a heat cycle.

Yep, he should have gone out on a used set of mediums.

I thought MS race pace is good, but today Ferrari show much better Qualy pace. If their race pace is also better , there is no point for MS to fight them, it will just finish his tyres. So, stay 7th and hope for problems for guys ahead? Don't see other chance. He can easily jump Webber , but after?

If they wanted to do a fast lap in Q3, then why the hell did they wait until the last few milliseconds! But to be fair, they were not expecting Lewis to go so slowly. Even then....

Looks like there's a bug in the FIA timing system, there's a pretty good chance that Kobayashi should be 8th or even 7th

Hamilton maybe will penalized because he was to slow before the end of the Q3, and maybe he forces MS out of track and alslo slowed down Webbo...

What bug? Kobayashi didn't set a lap, same as the other three. He wouldn't move up the order. Or shouldn't at least, it's down to car numbers and both MS and the two Renaults are ahead of the Sauber.
