It was the opportunity to overtake especially with DRS too. If Senna hadn't been weaving Schumacher would have easily gone round the outside... so while you can claim patience would have been the key there, there was no need for patience. Schumacher had the move set up, he was set to brake later too, Senna weaved to close the door... Schumacher thought he'd have nowhere to go so he went to the right, but Senna braked even earlier and boom, that was the result.
100% the way I see it.
When you got someone like Bruno who clearly is now in a competitive car, there is nowhere to hide, his whole weekend/quali/race just a a driver who isn't meant to be there, anyohe who saw Brazil 2011, and saw the seeds of pressure/errors from Bruno in spain qualifying, should of placed a bet that a hard charging schumacher wasn't going to get by a driver who can't really race in these cars. And that's essentially Schumacher's frustration, he's been done twice by Bruno and it hasn't even been a full year between incidents
There' s a reason Schumacher and Hamilton went wheel to wheel without crashing at Monza 2011, they know the game, Alonso does, Vettel does, Kimi does. You can race with actual racers.
This was a difficult weekend for Mercedes, essentially qualifying high would of gotten them out of this midpack trouble, being in the midpack on a track like spain is no good. This is the first race perhaps where Mercedes hasn't looked great in qualifying and that essenitally played a part. Bruno is going to be a problem for other drivers if the williams stays competitive.
