Yep! And speaking of MS lol, does anyone who used to hate his dominance laugh when he makes unforced errors? I am an MS fan but I do actually. It's like the other side of the coin kind of scenario lol. I'm just glad he's back. :D

He never gets a good run on harder tires in Q1. It's always an adventure.

Don't think he is comfortable with the circuit. To many mistakes imo.

Did he waste a set of soft tyres going back out again? Very remote chance of making it to Q3 with this kind of pace.

Don't think so. Those should have been used softs, not new ones.

They only have new softs.

It's not really wasted but it shouldn't have been necessary to use them.

Tough to get in Q3.

He is the one that should know that if Barrichello is not out approx 110 s before the end of session his driver is through.

I suggest you leave the brainy stuff to people that can actually use their brain and go fight Vietnamese, Soviet Army or whatever the hell does Rambo do these days.

Ah, I just saw it now, when he comes in, they do a mock pit-stop and change to intermeds.

No clue how many softs he used.

Michael's seat is being wasted by... Michael. Mercedes needs two competitive drivers for the future. Michael's had his time, give a youngster a chance.

Yeah, 8th , one place behind Nico. Nice. I think he just try to save the tires with not pushing to hard. Push tyres and you will have less tyre in the race.

I am quite perplexed and honestly, a bit worried too. Schumi almost 1sec behind rosberg in Q3. That should not have happened under any circumstances. Unless theres some sort of a explanation, I am guessing Rosberg wont be catchable here

Quite the opposite I think. Did MS give interview to the BBC, what he said?

He's just way to slow in qualifying. At least today he's 8th so it's alright, but it's still embarrassing for him to be 0.8s, 1s slower than Rosberg in qualifying. This year it doesn't matter much but if next year Mercedes finally delivers a good car, his qualifying weaknesses will hurt him much more. Tomorrow's looking good because he will start alongside Rosberg but I just wish he could sort out his qualifying problems...

:yawnface: Michael achieved some major feats in F1, but he HAD his time! Merc should be looking to the future and Michael isn't the future.

Setup difference, different way of using tyres. He was 0,8 sec slower in India too, how the race finished?

Surprisingly decent p8. Not the first time Schumacher's gap to Rosberg is so big, I can recall some of the recent races where it was the case, but then the difference vanished in the race.

A shame for all four cars that went out (MGP, FI), seeing how it made absolutely no difference to how they would've started. MGP wanted to place Rosberg on 7, in front of Schumacher, because he deserved it, so he did an outlap early on, but the rest was just tire wastage. Not that it matter too much in the end though, they'll only be driving against each other.

I know all that, I'm a Schumacher fan. I'm just concerned about next year, because he will need to be competitive in qualifying then.

Not very smart from FI, they know very well ,what will happen at the start if they finished Q3 ahead of MS.
