Ralf is commentator for RTL this week. Maybe he is replacing Lauda for some races like last year. And he did good job.

I never understand that on new tracks. Surely the more laps = the quicker you go, he's only on 29 in total. I'd want as many as possible.

Obviously he had a problem.

32 min: Schumacher aborted that lap and comes back into the pits. Clearly, the German is unhappy about something in that Mercedes.

Mercedes already screwing with Schumi.

He had almost no valid time untill 30 minutes to the end of FP2. :down:

No, I think they are working very hard on next season. Typical shumi style. The opposition better be prepared for a super quick Merc & Schumacehr in 2012. If not, Merc better quit F1.

He is commenting before and after the race. And he is doing OK I think. He have experience you know. He is better than EJ for sure. But, for how long I don't know. He replaced Lauda for two races last year I think.

I'm quite skeptical about Q3 today. From 10th to 16th they're all within 0.27. Not to mention that between 11 and 15 they're all within less than one tenth.

And FI looking really strong.

I would like the cleaner side of the track. And I am not exactly sure where this is. The racing line is very strange. From one side to the other.

Yes, pathetic, he said this because he know in reality Schumacher this year is faster. Rosberg is under pressure.

What are the bbc (EJ) even on about Schmacher taking flack from everyone all weekend? including usual suspect Jackie Stewart. Also Hamilton saying he got held up by Schmacher was pathetic.

well he used 2 brand new soft tyres in this q, plus petrov gets the penalty so its not bad. He is complaining of vibrations as well from the rear tyres. I still think he will do better in the race.

He will no doubt make contact with somone and retire as normal when he starts from outside the top 10. sad, but true.

Petrov is before him, but I assume VP will be a bit more careful since last race.

I assume has a new set of softs which is HANDY!

Disappointing Qualifying, but I'm almost certain negativity seems to swirl around this thread at the slight hint of disappointment. 12th isn't a disaster, points are still possible.
