Hi,

Roll up, Roll up!

Place your bets now, how are Mercedes going to ruin Michael Schumachers race this week?

The winner gets a firm handshake, a hat saying 'Smartarse' and a 3 year contract as an Engineer at Mercedes F1!

Good luck to all of you!

We don't get many engine failures nowadays, I'm going with Schumi's race literally going up in flames.

I voted for the old favorite 'hydraulic failure'. It can cover a multitude of failure scenarios and seemingly strike at any given moment without remorse.

A Morris Marina will be 'accidently' dropped on Schumacher's car when he has left the grid to go to the loo, therefore making it impossible for him to start the race.

Jeremy Clarkson or Richard Hammond rams him on the start grid during a "Take part in an F1 race driving a 1000 quid sports car" challenge?

It's not meant to be serious, it's just a joke.
Sorry if you didn't understand that.

I don't think he has. But if you have one, I'm sure it's out there, somewhere.
