lets hope it works out for them.
love him or hate him, it will make for better viewing with schumacher fighting at the front again.
we know the engines not a problem just look at maclaren, so hopefully the chassis will improve things. the only downside is if it suits schumacher and not rosberg which would seem a bit unfair unless they intend in running 2 different cars?

They were anyway, they have a pretty much new chassis for Barcelona to change the balance of the car more to his liking, he needs to figure out the tyres though.

Still after another two three races is he's still qualifying and finishing in 10th then they have a major headache.

Button must be laughing his head off....I would be !

It understeers.. something MS doesn't like. Wonder why Ross built the car this way? Now they are moving towards a MS set up and Nico is the number one. Ferrari and McL and RedBull are providing BOTH drivers with the same opportunity. But then again Merc needs to make the Board of directors happy and not the drivers.

Do crash actually read the headlines and articles? Where does ANYONE mention a dodgy chassis?

The car suits Rosberg more than Schumacher. I would imagine that this will meant chassis changes to alter the behaviour of the car.

@Barry

The current chassis has a tendency to understeer which doesn't suit Schumacher, you could see it understeering from his footage but Rosberg likes his car setup that way.

Mind you button doesn't like a over-steery car which the McLaren is after been setup for Hamilton and he's done ok.

Like I say, give him a few more races, not his biggest fan but would like to see him doing better, if it carries on like this Brawn and him will end up looking silly.
