The old mans still got it. He may have lost the ability to drive around issues, he's not lost the ability to drive a car on the ragged edge.

The old man must be starting to worry the others.....Its only a piece or two more for the puzzle.... and I may be forced to switch the t.v off much like a decade ago.

I am glad Schumi qualified 3rd rather than 2nd. Offline is very dusty. Schumacher got real chance to get 2nd or may 1st come 1st corner tomorrow. We never know!!!

He didn't seem as happy as, say, Grosjean last week... :p Perhaps he wanted that pole. Or perhaps he knows he'll have a hard time defending that 3rd position tomorrow.

Super job MSC, i don't like the guy yet i still feel happy for him & he hasn't had the best comeback, until now! He seems to have the edge of Nico now and a decent motor too, i'm thinking he'll get at least pole and a podium this year, top job.

Enjoy it while you can.... I know all his fanboys have suffered over the course of the last couple of years. He certainly is making those who were never fans admire him for doing this at his age- me included.

Over the last few years people have said that the competition in the era that MS dominated wasn't as great as it is today - that it didn't have the Alonso's, Hamiltons, Vettel's, etc.

Performances like today reinforce my opinion that, seeing as given the right car a 43 year old Schumacher can compete with the best today, then in his prime he would have wiped the floor with the lot of them.

Great to see - regardless of what happens tomorrow.

I fear what it would've been like had he had this competition in his prime; would've destroyed 'em all!

+1.

I know that cars from the early and mid 90's are not comparable to today's cars, but I can't imagine anyone doing the performance Schumi did at Barcelona in 94 or his 98 Spa (before the Coulthard incident). All of Schumi's fans know that his best years were before the dominant era, so for him to do the type of performance he did today at 43 with the 2nd best car is a strong sign. Seeing how smooth he is in his steering input can only mean one thing: he's back into the grove and this year he should achieve some great results.

Edit: Forgot to mention Sepang 99. Coming back from a broken leg injury and whipping the field by over a second in qualy, then allowed Irvine to pass him twice in the race for the win.

Yeah, that Schumacher really sucks, doesn't he? Too old, too slow, doesn't have it anymore.

If that's true, can you imagine what he would have done to Hamilton in his prime?

Schumi hinted in the presser that he went for a race setup. I believe they could have taken pole here, but the rears would have been fried halfway through the stints had they chosen that setup. He looked very determined and concentrated, hopefully they will be at the same lvl as the McLarens in terms of race pace.

Well a top 6 result would be a good start towards ascending further heights, certainly a top eight if they understand what they need to do. I can't imagine McLaren and Red Bull not in the top 4.
