Thank you  ;)

Since Kimi pit, Schumi was even faster than Webber for most part.

Fantastic pace

If the BAR-Mercedes not such a lame band as they are, Schumi could be the top of the WDC standings (70-80 points).



I agree with this; he would be looking at possible World Championship fight.

Definitely not, he had every right to be there with Alonso and Grosjean close to each other. But went Grosjean went all the way over to Schumacher, contact was inevitable. It was a wonder it cost him so little.

I understand Alonso was dreadlocked behind Lewis and bumped Groo over Schumy, but the footage is not 100% clear.

At the start of the season when Michael retired I wasn't so disappointed. "At least he has pace" I said. Then as the season went on I got more and more annoyed as one thing after another just went wrong for him and I knew time was running out for me to see the old Michael again.

But now, since Spain and now Monaco...I'm back in the ambivalent stage. I don't much care any more as you just know SOMETHING will go wrong. Something to ruin it all.

I can't help but agree. It has got to that point now. You know something is going to go wrong. why?, because it normally does. Reliability has been so good in F1 for 2 years, Yet Schumacher can barely complete a race distance and 75% of that is because of the team. The other 15% is admittedly through his own errors

Just wondering, and haven't found a mention in the other threads on this- Was the gearbox problem possibly caused by a jarring from the contact at the start? Not that it's any consolation, but at least I'd like to think that Mercedes didn't fail him yet again by giving him a car that was inevitably going to retire. Imagine if he'd not had the penalty, started from pole, and retired from the lead late in the race... I'd be absolutely gutted.

Just knew something like this was gonna happen. Michael fought like a lion though, with sensible approach, daring tactics, much later pitstops and fighting hard. Any reason why his car broke down.

The good thing is Mercedes publicly backs him, publicly sayhe should go on after this year, and next race, a total Merc track, no penalties anymore.

Canada will bring winner number 7. Michael Schumacher.

I know what you mean.

However, I am relaxed as I have tickets for Silverstone (my first ever F1 race live after 22 years of watching!) and strongly believe Michael will have a great weekend there. All the signs - except reliability which must surely improve - look good.

Mercedes were not backing him before this weekend though. The likes of Nick Fry saying he must improve. Which i thought was a bit of cheek considering the amount of points the team has lost him this year.

:up:
My thoughts exactly, this is starting to get rediculas.
Looking at the racepace he could have won today whitout the penalty.
I'm hoping MS keeps his cool and doesn't throw in the towel at the end of the year.

But even if Montreal suits the merc like no other. There is the unpredictable factor in the tire that can spoil the party.
Let's hope for a trouble free weekend, nobody deserves this more than MS at the moment

100% Grosjean's fault in that incident. Not because he slammed into Schuey, but because he slammed into Alonso (which inevitably caused him to slam into Schuey).

I seen the onboard from Alonso's car, and the gap was a lot smaller than his car, he's not compltetly blameless. Schumacher on the other hand was blameless

There is no need to look for culprits.

Alonso was easily in front of Romain and going faster, so he was entitled to move.

Grosjean was simply pushed wide.

Schumacher went as far as he could, only thing he could have done is lifted.

Racing incident. No one did anything stupid.

If he was so easily in front, how did their front wheels manage to bang together?

And no, Schuey did not have "great pace". Yes, he was held up by Raikkonen. No, he wouldn't have caught or kept up with Rosberg if that hadn't happened.

Another race to forget. At least Massa did well.

He can try, but if the other car is alongside they have no obligation to move out of the way and any resulting impact is the responsibility of the guy making the move

Schumacher wouldv likely ended behind Massa, so that would be a good result, too.

He was 20 seconds behind P1 at lap 25, and 44 seconds behind at lap 37 because of Raikonen.

When his fuel problem occured that difference was down to less than 20 seconds again, due to great pace and excellent control. Anyone saying Schumacher had a bad race didnt pay attention.

Yes he did, and no he wouldn't have caught Rosberg if not held up because Rosberg was several cars in front and it would have been nearly impossible for Schumacher to get past Massa let alone pass all the cars between himself and Rosberg.

No. If the other guy has room left to react and still go full throttle he´s just being a moron and causing an unnecesary incident. Schumacher showed the way to do it in Monaco 2004 start.

According to what you say, if Alonso hadn´t responded to Maldonado´s defense on Spain into turn 1 and had gone straight, the contact would be Maldonado´s fault, which is ridiculous. Maldonado was in front, and he was entitled to squeeze Alonso without pushing him off the track.

As i have said in earlier posts. As daft as some of you may think it sounds. Someone at Mercedes does not want Michael there. There has been far to many gremlins on Schumacher's side of the garage.
To be honest i think its getting obvious the team want Di Resta there.

To me Mercedes and Schumacher do not fit.

Disagree. The incident is down to the one making the move, they have to make sure they are clear before trying to occupy a piece of road already occupied by another car.

Well you´re entitled to your opinion on how racing etiquette should be, but I´m afraid that watching F1 racing shows that it´s working the other way around: it´s accepted that the guy with the nose in front pushes the guy behind wide providing he leaves room for him to stay full throttle and doesn´t push him off the track.

More like anyone who is saying he had a bad race wanted him to have one. I had the live laptimes up and once he was free off Kimi he was lapping on the leaders pace. He would of finished in 7th (higher if you could pass on this track) if not for Mercedes.

And ,yes his pace was very good:
http://en.mclarenf-1.....=Nico Rosberg
From 1:23.9 to 1:19.2 is big improvement after Kimi pit. The problem is he catch Lewis 3 laps after and he slow him down ,so he pit. After that his pace was similar to Rosberg/frontrunners. Fastest lap from both.

There was enough room between ALO and MSC to stay in full throttle. Without contact, and Gro getting scooped left, he could have stayed on it.

This thing RSC did here is "pushing into another car".

I thought it was just one of these things that happens (as incidentally I thought Schumacher vs Senna was), but history has shown that I appear to be very lenient or accepting when it comes to contact. However, I don't know if it's been mentioned, but there's probably quite a possibility that hitting Senna 2 weeks ago stopped today with the fuel problems turning into one of those real "feel-bad" stories in that Schumi has lost 7th because of the problems. Had he not hit Senna then it's possible that the car may have broke down in the lead today.

This cars are rebuild from scratch you know and maybe what was left from Barcelona is the chassis only. And this problem was engine problem, maybe it was new engine. But, I doubt they work on the engines on the weekends, they just take them out and mount them.

No he shouldn't. It was a start line incident. Grosjean had nowhere to go after getting punted by Alonso.

Why the hell he was over Alonso, his way ahead was free? Even at the start there is avoidable incidents. Not to bounce from car to car. Or because Alonso was passing him he have to hit him?

What do you think about a possible sabotage? It seems some people from the Merc squad wants di Resta to the second Merc very. I read today in several forums that this unlucky series (machanical failures, pit stop errors, DRS problem in the Q1) maybe not a coincident...
