I find extraordinary that technical errors and some degree ineptness in operations are being laid to Schumacher's doorsteps. That's mighty assumption they even listen to him religiously in the same cooperative spirit as in the past and other team. Unfortunately this blaming theory is not explaining why W01 under influence of Mess. Button/Barr., the car was not a very good one.
Time went one, and stubborn people such as I am might actually lay a claim, that less tire saga, and error on diffuser, W03 could have been a contender; despite that some residual issues such as rate of continuous development during a season probably remain.
Impact of instability and reduction of resources under RRA, including uncertainty if there is tomorrow (CA conditions) played crucial, and detrimental to stability roles on mood at Brackley, there is no doubt about it and I do not have to be there to take that into consideration. Lastly, everyone in the paddock was surprised by tire properties; factually it was a discovery after a car was built and track ready. It has taken some time to learn what is needed to get most of the rubber, but it doesn't automatically followed, that without major re-design one could harmonize and control tire with the car they had.
I am sure that I can continue, but what's the point? Surely they will go ahead, and Hamilton has nothing to lose, as I expect that any sign of success it will go to his credit, whereas failure to someone else’s. Such is a life.
