Schumacher has looked pretty good all weekend, and certainly impressed today with his skillful steering around the sideways cars on track and could well have got into Q3 if the luck had been with him with the traffic.

Interesting though to watch the in-car shots. When the Mercs come into the final corner, Schumacher was having to make several steering adjustments to get the car through the corner. Compare that with the handling of the Mclaren in the same corner where the drivers take a line and the car sticks to it.

Schumacher looked really good today, set some great lap times at certain stages.

If Schumacher had been in a McLaren or a Red Bull today he would have been P1. No question.

Rob, surely you cannot be implying that Rosberg drove better than Schumacher in qualifying at Spa because he is ahead of Schumacher on the grid? And if not, why else did you make that comment? Did you think we didn't already know about Schumacher's 10 place grid penalty?

arent you bright Rob?

State the obvious next time. He does have a 10 place penalty.

Still he beat Nico is FP1, FP2, FP3 AND Quali

Schumi is belatedly getting settled into modern F1.

If Merc get a competitive car next season watch out. WDC title 8 could be on the way

So Rob, you are admitting you are a troll? Actually, Mercedes is in fourth place in the WDC, not fifth. Even if Kubica wins tomorrow, Petrov would still have to get in the points and ahead of both Mercedes drivers for Renault to move up to fourth.
