dont forget senna could hear the traction control even though noone else could and the tv cameras captured the wheel spin starts and we all saw the car sliding around :rotfl:


Is that why Senna spun while fighting Schumacher in Interlagos for the win?

Senna also lost his car at Imola, according to his team-mate Hill and others (the fatal outcome was the result of freakish bad luck).

Maybe I missed the race? Did the weekend finish? As I said it is team sport. You don't need to lose tyre to see that something is wrong. Car is 70-80% responsible. I hope they improve something from yesterday. 11th is not the end of the world, never was if you fight for 7th in best case. Did they test something in FPs?

People crticise him when he wins and loses, he's box office, it's why he's popular, I'm stating a fact, and your reply just proves it again, thanks. :D :wave:


Oh, I wasn't even aware that I critizised him, somehow our definitions of that must be very different. Which could explain a few things.... :p

Yeah, according to Hill and a few others whose main objective was to save Williams from the wrath of italian law. Which was a noble cause, but the idea itself remains still waht it always was: BS.

Brawn to Bild : Its easy to talk with Michael about a new contract. If he wants to carry on racing we will find a solution quickly

Yep............ Stewart, Lauda, Montoya, Alonso, Prost, Mansell, Barrichello, Hill, Herbert, Moss, Brundle, Coulthard, Villeneuve, Jock Clear, Roebuck, All Of The BBC, all bashers.


Not at all, most of your list, while some erring on the side of being a bit pro-British, are actually 'all's fair when fair" guys - from every one of them I can quote decent things said about MS with the exception of Stewart and Moss who are just sad old mouth pieces desperate to be heard.

Perhaps I was too hasty. I'm always naturally pessimistic with Schumi these days, I don't like to get my hopes up. But his pace is improving. With 22 laps to go maybe he can catch up to Rosberg...

Gonna be interesting when Lewis catches up to him. Just get out of his way Michael, its not worth losing a wing over.

Well arknor I think you made a good call about fuel, if Schumi has been more reserved while Rosberg has been greedy with his engine mapping in the early stages this could give Michael more pace with the lighter cars. Lets see...

Schumacher just clocked a mega lap..only 0.040s slower than FL so far...he should jump Rosberg easily.

i think he still needs another lap after his current one and then the stop itself to be atleast as fast as rosbergs

Will be interesting to hear what Nico has to say about this... but thats for another thread.

Some mega laps from Michael to get ahead! If he was saving himself and his tyres then this has worked beautifully.

Knowing Nico he probably shredded his tyres to bits in all the excitement, what did look suspect was the slow pit-stop.

Yes we can see soon comments like:

NR was pitted first for MSC
NR was held back in the pits for MSC
NR was faster throughout the race but lost in the pits cause Brawn wants MSC to win

Another embaressing day for Michael. Mercedes need to step in and repleace him with a quality driver. They have already tolerated Schumachers drastic lack of speed for two seasons, and enough is enough. Im actually surprised Michael has not had the sense to give up. Years ago he used to say, the moment someone quicker than him showed up, he would rather retire than risk himself pushing trying to keep up, yet hes been doing that for 2 seasons. Its not like the gap has been a 1 tenth, its closer to half a second, and thats what you expect from second class pay drivers, who last half a season.


Yes, he finished the race (you know, the bit that is important and you get points for) in 5th place ahead of his team mate.

He should be sacked immediatly for such appaling race performances, its amazing Mercedes let him finish their car in 5th place.

But who should he be replaced with?

And more imortantly, why aren't you trolling on the Nico thread that he's being beaten by somene you think should be fired? Shouldn't Nico be sacked too by that logic?
