yea we love people like you ignoring the facts aswell so you can attempt to troll a topic see my speed traps post and you can see how lewis hamilton was able to over take and schumacher wasnt.
All in all a pretty mediocre performance from MS. One shouldn't be always having to make excuses for a lack of results.
Great drivers come through usually. Look at LH: Anything that could possibly go wrong for him, did. He even got driven into at the very end, made an unneccesary pitstop, had to fight back through the field. He did what he had to in order to shine.
Alonso: Caused a first lap contretemps. (MS did not drive defensively and leave enough room to avoid contact, possibly), ended up just two spots up from MS at the back of the field. In the end, he actually could have won. Massa was holding him up badly and only the fact of they're being teammates stopped FS from putting the aggressive pass on him.
It's possible that MS was not helped by strategy. His second pitstop was disgracefully slow. Even so, he has to make up for adversity to be reckoned outstanding. He does not look that these days. Perhaps ever; Jock clear opined that it was his weakness. If absolutely everything does not falls right for him, he is prone to getting flustered.
He looked VERY average in this race.
the mercedes doesnt have the straightline speed it needs to be catching people going into corners , the aerodynamics of the cars mean you can not get close in a corner without having massive oversteer in dirty air which is why alonso couldnt overtake massa even if he wanted to put an aggressive pass on him.
watch the onboard videos of alonso struggling into the corners whenever he tried to follow massa closely.
THEN STOP POSTING BS AND TROLLING.
