With the safety car, it seems there is a chance for Rosberg to catch up to MSC.

Nico gained 25 sec to Michael.

rosberg needs to hold hamilton and massa slightly and schumacher can jump them in the pitts

If schumacher pits again, Ros is going to jump him - or does he need to pit again?

Ok so the headlines are ahead of Massa and close behind Hamilton.

Its a shame he wasn't running that phase on hard tyres, a new set of softs now would have been superb. Ah well, lets see how it goes to the end. Keeping fingers crossed for 6th!

He is on hards but Perez is quick at the moment on softs, he needs to hunt down 7s in 7 laps.

I think it's interesting how Michael is always the fastest in the last sector - Martin and DC talked about it yesterday that Michael was the only driving to attack the kerbs there...it seems to pay off. :up:

Can't see the action, obviously, but from the timings Michael has dropped off from Lewis and is keeping Massa about 0.5s behind him. I can only assume that Michael is weaving like a rug maker to keep Felipe at bay and thats where he's losing time.

Edit - Nope, just saw it. All looks very calm. 0.5s behind here doesn't feel as close as on other circuits somehow.

schumachers faster in the last sector every time and matchs massa in the middle, but hes much slower in sector 1 , he should just hold the position by the skin of his teeth

didnt see the battle with massa either :rolleyes: the stupid race director would rather show buttons mum or whoever it was and then button pulling off the road at the end aswell rather than actually show the race thats still going on.

how come fom never do a picture in a picture?

Yeah... well we did get a few seconds of it and it all looked very quiet. If it was anyone but Massa I think there would have had fireworks, but a man with a broken front wing and a broken spirit?

I'm not sure how hard Massa was trying to get past, on the timings he was just floating around 0.5s back but in the few seconds we saw he was hardly hussling Schumi. Massa can still be quick, but once Schumi was ahead...

Anyway it doesn't matter, 6th is better than expected so that will do! Really its been a great run since Canada, he couldn't be doing much better in the Merc right now.

Not sure how much Massa could do, he was on much older tires.

A very good race by Michael considering he actually gained from the SC. I'll say it again but if this man was in the 2nd RB, or the 2nd McLaren or the 2nd Ferrari he'd being doing a better job than his counterparts.
