People shouldn't get ahead of themselves and remember that whatever you say or do may strike back at you one day. The situation may change in a few races, but who cares MS can still do his job better than most and i still get shivers when he is driving that's all i care about. We are mere fans anyway we can say all we want like "Schumi is on his way to 7 more titles" our opinions bear little to no credit especially outisde this forum. But many people were too harsh when criticizing MS and it rarely was constructive criticism. As for F1 journalists the nature of the sport and its fanbase allows them to write whatever they like about drivers, teams, cars etc without knowing anything cuz in fact nobody cares that much compared to other sports. Still apart from the excitement for MS' performance in these 2 qualifying session i have to say that it feels great to know that people like EJ have their mouths full of s**t lately. :-)

yep. Schumi is looking into Mclaren exhaust because he knows there is where Mercedes is lacking

Vettel did a very good time on hards to prove how strong RBR are. Lotus have excelent tire management, so a top 6 will be already a great result for the race because the car is not close to what it is in qualifying.

Not really. Schumacher always was the whipping boy for the pompous part of the (british) motorsport press. They must have writen thousands of times he was past it, he would retire, hed never win anything beyond his Beneton days, that he has only 80% of his speed left.

Days like these taste all the more sweeter. :)

Seems this season he has a car that can mix it with the big boys and no doubt well see some epic racing from the 7 times world champion again. And exactly why he is the most succesful ever F1 driver.

Weren't you one of the people who totally wrote Schumacher off regarding quali?

Bet today felt like a nice slap in the face.

Let's wait until the race is done, though. :p

If it's run in mixed conditions, Michael will make the difference. :up:

Good old Eddie.

The guy is just a complete waste of time, the more you talk the less you think. He's just a wind up merchant that's all he strives for.

Not yet crystallised though is the almost certainty that a start lioke this will have him racing next year.

you can sense the hunger he still has and watching him no longer having to fight the car is just wonderful nostalgia. changing brake balances mid corner etc etc.life in the old dog yet

There is a fight brewing on CA side. After today, sadly, I am not 100% sure that Mercedes will continue. I want them to stay, I want Michael to continue (I am selfish sod), but I would understand if they give a mid finger salute to FOM.

yes. I think everybody thought Nico would keep upperhand in quali. I'm a huge Schumi fan, though, and therefore very very happy Schumi found a bit of his speed back ;)

There's a beauty to it, isn't it? Last season it was the inexperienced Petrov that kept ruining his races, this season it's the same car again, only driven by his inexperienced successor Grosjean. Dynastic succession.

Thanks a lot Grosjean. Good job buddy.

Glad he's out. Gonna try and stay positive, perhaps it will be like Canada 2011 that he was in a bad position at the red flag but climbed back to the top after the restart.

Schumacher didn't hit Grosjean, not any day of the week. Clearly on board you see Schumacher get a tremendous thump from the right rear. Romain has binned it anyway, what an idiot. Nice guy, quick in qualifying but just like his first few races for Renault he isn't race ready when it comes it the crunch.

Does anyone know why MS had to come back to the pits in his out lap? What was wrong with the car?

Edit: Before the race that is.
