DRS fail

Better now then in the race
He's got more tyres then most in a race tipped to be hard on tyres

Getting a majority of mercedes problems so far again

gearbox australia
pitstop china
DRS fail quali Bahraiin, but so far not the worst issue, can be repaired it's not in the race, and it might just might help the race, because no one knows how bad the tyre wear will be, so if can have a decent first lap, alot to play for.



RFA problem is REAR FLAP ADJUST

So no DDRS in that 23.8 S3..


Are we talking about the second timed lap? If so, what were the S1 and S2 times, do you know?

Thanks!

His S1 and S2 were both green, i don't remember the exact times but they were more than enough. We will find out when they are on Mclaren-f1.

For all you know he could end up 49 points behind his teammate by the end of this weekend.

Yes, this is potentially a serious compromise of Schumacher's WDC chances. Merc needs to seriously pull up its socks for Schumacher.

Can't say I am too disappointed. Schumacher has struggled all weekend so it's unlikely that he was going to achieve anything other than a handful of points.

Haha only one week and they're back to their usual f*ck ups. Schumacher has lost his momentum and we're now going to hear for the rest of the year how over-rated and rubbish he really is/was.

Write off 2012 boys. I'm glad I didnt watch this sh*te.

Calm down the lot of you. You claim to be Schumi supporters and you lose faith when he has a TECHNICAL failure. You all stood by him the last 2 seasons when he really was getting beaten soundly by Rosberg and in the season that he is starting to fight back you all admit defeat.

Get a grip of yourselves.


Nobody here is losing faith in Michael, read the comments.

And as far as i'm concerned in 2011 he beat Rosberg, so not the last 2 seasons :clap:

29,9 and 41,2. Not good second sector.

That's exactly my problem. In the first 2 races Nico didn't find the balance or made errors in qualifying but i didn't cost him. And now that it's really crucial to pull it off Schumacher is screwed for a second weekend in a row. Or for 4th if you prefer.

Wow.

Just wow.

All I can say is wow.


It's too typical, I see it tomorrow. I see the headlines tomorrow. "Schumacher taken out at the first corner with a broken wing and broken nose, retires from the race."

It's bound to happen. BOUND TO HAPPEN I tell you.

If those were his times for the best lap, 29,9 and 41,2 sounds like Rosberg level to me, considering Rosberg was only 0.3 ahead, right?

Nico second was 40,9 at that moment. If MS have better than 23,8 last sector he could get in Q2 and stay there maybe, we don't know if he come out again.

Ultimately what cost him was running wide in the fast left under going up the hill. The technical failure prevented him from running again perhaps due to safety concerns.

Yes it absolutely sucks and yes it bloody hurts but you can't claim you have lost all hope now- there are many more races to come and Schumi will have his days.

Cheer up guys you never know what might happen tomorrow- a good first lap and a safety car good turn things on its head.

Keep the faith. Schumi needs your support when times are tough.

Edited to also say that p18 will end up being p16 after Maldonado and Vergne take their penalties.

No worries, we like a challenge. Anybody can put it on pole and run away with the race. I'll enjoy watching Michael scythe through the field.

I think Maldonado is on a gearbox change, and Vergne will surely be penalized for skipping the weighbridge.

The rule for doing that used to be "Go Home!" but I think it's changed now, not sure to what though.

Why didn't it cost Rosberg that he left the track during his first timed lap?

That's not on a serious note, but I think it points out how random this Q3 exit was.

See, it's not that I don't have any faith in Schumi. And I think im not the only one with the same thinking......

I mean, we're all curious on how he does starting at 18th or whatever tomorrow and blitzing his way up the positions. It'll be fun seeing Schumi be competitive in earning spots towards the upper grid. The prospect of him trying to gain positions itself is exciting indeed.

What I fear and expect is, some id!ot will (LIKE USUAL) bump into Schumacher and force him out of the race while he tries to battle at the start tomorrow. That or some f*** up by Merc crew themselves. That's what I expect to see tomorrow, sorry.

It'll be fun, but personally I just want to see him on the podium(which under these circumstances is pretty much impossible). I guess fingers crossed for a decent start and a points finish. Hopefully team won't f*ck up the next one...

If his ddrs works tomorrow we may enjoy a good performance although it will be hard for his tyres. As for his Q1 best S1 and S2 i will wait for something official because on his last lap they were definitely green but maybe Ivan is right and they were slightly better ( although that is not what i remember ).

edit: maybe he could have beat Rosberg in Q3 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

**** me..

Expect the worst, hope for the best. A Spa 2011/Monaco 2006. I just think the season becomes better usually as it goes along for MS, Rosberg usuaully has things go his way earlier in the year.


I think Webber and Vettel will make things harder for Mercedes. Mclaren and redbull may feature well here, I thnk redbull will do well on tracks with high tyre war.

This won't be a easy race maybe and Rosberg has used up a set of tyres for not the best qualifying effort for himself.

This is all about the race. And I think redbull have had a good race car, and their qualifying today may mean bad news for mercedes, but we knew this could happen and mercedes needs to keep pushing on performance and reliability.

He will most probably will have to deal with Ferrari and force India in the first lap if he gets a good start. Will we get to see the duels? :wave:
