Did anyone see interview with MS yesterday? On RTL they didn't interview him. And this is for the first time as I remember. But, he was there in interview circle. Did he have some problems with RTL?
It was mentioned before that MS did the equal time in Q with FP2. Did anyone from you think they slept since then and if he wanted he couldn't do better? On the radio they tell him that he need 1:40.5 to stay in Q3 and he did it. Why they will tell him that target when they know that Nico can do 1:39.4? Because they have different strategy. He wasn't fighting Nico, he was doing his thing. If they wanted 1:39.4 they just have to set up the car differently. But, they didn't wanted 1:39 in the Q. They set up their car for different Q times.
We can compare Nico and Michael if they drive one car and to see who will make the best lap with it. Not tyre savings, all out. Or even if they drive their cars, but with the purpose to set the best possible lap. Not thinking about race afterwards.
I agree that they need to change Q rules. Now there isn't any excitement in Q3 especially.
Lets see if their weekend work will paid off today. Have to be very hard to drive this cars/tyres. That you can't push to 100%. You need to have big self-discipline.
Give them qualifying tyres.
About Button/Shumi question ,the answer is Button find himself in another place in F1 column. You don't have Petrov, Koba, Perez there. Best MS friends. If MS didn't have this incidents he would be ahead of Nico by now. On the other side Lewis also have a lot of incidents this year. Button, stay out of the trouble, where Lewis have found Massa, Maldonado, Koba. So, Lewis and MS give their team mates this advantage. And Button have very good season too, Nico not so much.
