And Grosjean. Now he is just cruising to the final.

autosportlive: Schumacher is still losing ground in seventh. He is now 23 seconds back from Massa, with Vergne 2.2s behind the Mercedes in eighth.

He is not losing ground , it is 23 sec for some laps now. What he can do , catch Massa? And after that what?

I think we have to settle for 7th. :|
I thought his race had ended at the start when his right front got hit.
Can't say that I'm surprised with what's happening for him. We'll have to wait longer for his win.

Schumacher is lapping 1s faster than Web-Ros........

I hope Lotus never win this year for this. I also hope Bruno Senna is ditched by Williams soon.

This would have been a easy win without that frikkin penalty

At least MSC did his part.

Farcical F1, the Master of Monaco made pole and should've won because had better pace than anybody.

Webber or Nico might win it, but they weren't the faster drivers.

I watch F1 to see who is the fastest and MSC showed that to me, this weekend

Incident between RG and MS will be investigated and (for sure) MS will get punished. His bad luck is not improving. Not that it was his fault ,but why not.
MS has fuel pressure problem.

He must think why do i bother. This race weekend had everything. He got Pole BUT the penalty from privious race ment he couldent stay there. He got hit (as usual) then his car failed (As usual) Yep i should know what to expect by now. ):

Maybe the grid penality happened to harshen the disappointment if Michael was leading and had a engine issue/ That might of been worser.

Easily the most unlucky driver of the season now if it wasn't clearer earlier.


Big shame to see what the end result might of been. 2 DNFS at Monaco 2 years in a row 2012/2011 and a unjust FIA penality for his 4th place in 2010, plus the grid penality entering 2012 Monaco. The man has had everything against him.

Extremely disappointing..

The thing is most reliability across the grid is quite good. Mercedes Nico reliability has been excellent.



The misfortune is highly excessive and difficult to accept it, if this goes on, Michael deserves a award for human sporting motivation or something.

Wow, every single race.

Nico has had 59 points from 4 races. That averages to almost a podium in each of those 4 races.

I think Schumacher has made his decision for 2013.......

You always hear the luck/bad luck evens it out over the season. If that´s the case, that must be a hell of a second half of the season...
To make it short: either it will happen in Canada or not anymore this year.

C'mon, lets not be the type of fans who get silly about this sort of thing.

Grosjean will have to show why he moved so far left, or otherwise I suspect he may get a penalty. I don't like to see them, but it would be consistent. He did cause an avoidable collision.

(Grosjean is fast, but just shows his inexperience I think. If he can work that out of him this season i think he could be very good).

I thought Schumi had a really encouraging weekend. If he had started from pole he was easily faster than anyone else, and he proved when in 7th he was catching the lead group until his problem. He had really good pace. And the quali was excellent.

The car failures are frustrating, but you can't fault the man this weekend. :up: Very encouraging.

bad fortune twice in one race.. but without Grosjean's error and the failure he would have been fighting for the podium/win places so hey, good takeaway for him and his fans I think.

This is the most pathetic thing I have seen in MY LIFE. 59-2 between Rosberg and Schumacher, for **** sake, these are the facts and the rest doesn't matter? I'd almost start to believe it. Without a major overhaul in the second half of the season, Schumacher leaves. For today, first he got stuck behind a totaled Raikkonen who actually couldn't impress me all weekend long (esp. compared to Grosjean). Grosjean cost Schumacher places with his self-elimination. MSCs fault. If we look at the consistency of the stewards.

His pace was perhaps not good enough for the win considering the strategy, everybody was going extremely slow and MS and Vettel a bit faster. A podium was almost 100% sure on the cards if we look at the pace Michael had at the end of the SS stint and the middle stint compared to the rest until he fell away, he made up about 10s if i recall correctly. Also he was one or the longest driver on SS.

Everybody who rabbles on about excellent racing and a fairytale from six winners in six races, please shut the duck up. The fragility of the tyres, with a midfielder being able to go 3s faster than the leaders pace, is just utter bullshit with the balance between speed and tyre saving ability being completely gone. The drivers could be even better than guys like Jimmy Clark who was renowned for saving tyres, but the combination here just does not work. In the older days it would have been much more consistent with not so much difference in time. How many passes have been here today, 2? Even DRS couldn't fix the spectacle-tyre situation.

Wouldn't surprise me, though he was squeezed onto the outside and it looked like a driving incident.

That said, is Dereck Warwick a steward?

Grosjean will either be penalised or let off if they decide he was bounced wide by Alsone. They wont even be considering a penalty for Michael that would be just silly.

Of course he won't, it isn't Michael that is being investigated, he was blameless.

Come on guys, we take the piss if other fans adopt this 'poor driver is victimised/being sabotaged' thing. It isn't the case.

Good clean weekend from Schumi, and very good pace. He is driving well this year, we shouldn't lose sight of that.

Mercedes seem unable to get Schumacher through to the end of the race. I am mighty frustrated by this season. 2 points is a frigging joke. The car may show promise. It is no good if you do not finish.
I can't see him staying on in 2013.
