really hoping for some SC to occur in the middle of the race, with schumi already been in the pits and getting in the top5 again so we can see him racing with the top guys

Seriously, you take one comment and you interpret it in whatever way you like.

Sorry if I misinterpreted it and responded a bit cynical. How else did you mean it?

Yes lets just not bother to overtake anyone :drunk: . He left him plenty of space there, but still contact had to be made. It makes me sick to be honest. Every race i keep my expectations low, yet it turns out even worse!


I wonder, how different was this to the MSC - KOB incident of Silverstone?

For me, the minimum goal should be to catch Rosberg first, so that we won't have to endure snide comments from nico fans (both of them) or trolls later. Considering P15, i take everything else as a bonus.

I just meant that i don't like this races getting compromised from stuff like that. I know it wasn't his fault at all and it should have been a clean overtake but after 2011 i believe he should think twice. On the other hand i realise that a racing driver is supposed to seize every opportunity offered so maybe my comment was a bit stupid, after all it's wet and we have already seen drivers in trouble ( like Button a few laps ago ) so maybe what i'm thinking isn't valid. Anyway, i hope for less troubled races in the future for Schumi and let's see what he can do today.

Are you sure he's already on the slicks ? I don't think anyone is.

Great strategy by Mercedes again....ala 2010 and 2011.


Now we've got to hear how amazing Rosberg is for the next 3 weeks and all the anti-Schumacher critics will be squirting their loads all over the computer monitors.

I'd wait before drawing such conclusions. Ros is losing out massively to Schu.

MS is on old ineters, Ros is on newer inters.

If the rain comes will Ros have a big tyre advantage? (not that he doesn't now and is still slower)

I dont give a shit about Ros, I know Schu is quicker.

But this pace is plain embarrassing.

Pathetic race strategy, should have pitted for dry weather tyres much earlier, there was nothing to lose. Idiots. But very abnormal race, Vettel making no impression after his stop and Hamilton & Button have been slow as well.

After 2 races 100% of the Merc point comes from Schumi.

Pointless race. He was closing in on Maldonado towards he end, though I'm not sure if there was enough time left to catch and pass him. Still, a point is better than nothing.


As someone said there just seems to be a massive flag hovering above his car for the rookies and rookies at heart trying to win races on the first lap. Last year we thought qualifying down in 6-10th meant he was getting caught up in these useless battles at the back, here he is qualifying 3rd, and yet someone manages to run into him.

MS should forget about his "project Mercedes" and just go to another team. He deserves better, I mean just can't fathom that one team with all the technical directors in the world of F1 can get it so wrong year after year! Degradation is the worst of all teams. It was depressing seeing MS being passed so easily.
