Even though he lost the clean starting position, I for once, am optimistic about the race tomorrow. He simply can not be SO unlucky once more. So I expect a trouble free first lap, and a finishing position in top 5. With a shot at the podium, if the finishing laps goes according to plan.

:clap: :clap:

Well, I was wondering if it could actually get worse for Hamilton and McLaren... and it has. No reason why Schumacher's run of circumstance cannot continue. I smell an awful season ahead unless something changes fundamentally. :well:

I am just watching in horror. This is a completely different auto show than the one that I came to know over the years.

Buddy your are dreaming. Car is no good. Podium seems to be impossible to me. Darn we have Kobayashi behind *u got to be scared* :p . Sauber and Force India are very competitive in races.

What do you expect? I was going to bed. :p Lets see.
Sakae it is WWE, we know, but until MS is there , I will have to watch the show.
Looking last year strategy I expect this - soft,soft,soft,hard,(hard). For 3 or 4 stops.

Michael looks not happy at Sky Germany. Says they are glad to be in Q3 after qualifiyng was their strength all year...


3 time WDC Niki Lauda says that the performance of Michael Schumacher is a bland disappointment. No wonder Michael does not look happy - being beaten by Williams' and Saubers....

Let's see for the race - as I said some time ago, it is time for Michael to deliver on the track, not just before the microphone.

As long as machinery and team support is there he'll do it don't you worry.

Yeah, Alonso too, Vettel too, Button, Webber, Rosberg too. Aditya I think you missed changes we have now in F1. Focus my friend. You still live in the past. Williams and Sauber cars are not worse than the rest. Williams is the most consistent team in first 4 races. Can I ask ,did you see Michael doing fast lap in Q3???

So getting bumped off by Grosjean, one tech failure and two team failures later, it is Schumachers fault according to Lauda? That is a laugh. :wave:

2nd lap is my bet too -- with Kobayashi slamming into Schumacher's back

And if ever he survives after Lap 2, Merc will make sure MS retires shortly after his 1st pit stop

If he still survives after his 1st pit stop, then that only means one thing: A typical 8th-10th finish.

But of course, MS could use some luck today. Who knows. Wish him the best for today's race!

Of course not, Michael was preferring not to drive in Q3 - that was part of why Lauda was upset with Schumacher. Michael is not even trying...

I trust you are stinking up the Button and Webber threads too. After all, they both got beaten by Michael - they must be really crap.

Or... that just wouldn't be taking circumstances into account, would it?

Read again kid, they are referring to him having another reliability issue/the team making another mistake. Hope that helps.

Also, wow after reading your posts you must REALLY think Webber and Button are rubbish? :|

Just praying something doesn't go wrong with his car today! Rosberg has never beaten Michael at this track I believe so will be interesting if he manages to find some pace.

I actually think thats a bit unfair. I'm certainly not worried about Kobayashi Seb, Rosberg, Button or Webber. Or even Grosjean! (Whos miles up the road anyway). What happened at Malaysia was a small error from a rookie to F1 in very tricky conditions. Its just racing.

I'm hoping for a decent start then hopefully Michael will be able to apply some pace.

Watching the BBC coverage right now and all they are saying is the drivers who do well will be the ones that todays temperatures suit the tyres best for their particular car setup during the race. Yesterdays pace and setups could easily count for nothing. Tyres and the prevailing conditions at the time appear to be the only deciding factor. Rendering all of this a bit moot.

Although all the damage is to the back of Senna and the front of Michael. What the hell was that?

Did Senna weave back onto line? If not Schumacher will be given a 10 place grid penalty for causing an avoidable collision and that will be Monaco ruined...

I've seen it again. Senna absolutely switched up his line into the braking zone. Along with braking very early he caused the incident.

Schumacher was right. Bruno Senna = idiot.

Senna weaved in the braking zone. Michael had to jink to the left, and lost the ability to brake.

If Senna had continued to take the corner to the right instead of moving left and slowing up there wouldn't have been a collision, but listening to the BBC guys it sounds like Michael will get a penalty.

Senna's mistake.

Senna changed the line under braking and Schumacher was coming down with much more speed on the wings of DRS and tried to avoid Senna, but it was way too late.
