F1 » Hydraulic fault leaves Schumacher in a flap


Mercedes was left apologising to Michael Schumacher after another technical failure left the former world champion on the sidelines as Nico Rosberg went on to finish sixth.

I'm feeling for F1's elder statesman this year, its as if he used up every single ounce of good fortune during his Ferrari years, avoid black cats, mirrors, walking under ladders etc, c'mon Mikey, use the Force

And this comes after the team promised Schumacher a trouble free weekend! Apart from a small glitch in practise, Rosberg's car has run like a Swiss watch all season - very strange, but also very pathetic. I now expect this to carry on all season. Schumi's side of the garage should be ashamed of themselves.

The only question that needs asking is why did it stay open ? they are supposed to be fail safe, that is, they should stay shut not open. It needs looking at by the FIA.

@stuart you are obviously very very lacking in most departments , mercedes are not doing the sport any favors , and if msc left F1 he would take millions of fans with him , and almost any last shred of credibility that this circus show has left

whats there to disagree at ? ur either some uneducated part time f1 fan or something else , mercedes are an absolute joke !!! and msc is easily one of the best drivers on the grid , it cant be anything to do with age or he's past it , if thats the case then how come max biaggi won the double at misano in sbk? he's 41 , and hes doing better than he ever has !!

@rsv2001 I think he's proving your point, he is ONE of the best ie he's around about tenth to twelvth best based on grid position. Still not much cop is it? And the comparison with biaggi is flawed, age is only one factor. I truly believe his bad luck is Karma after the way he conducted his first F1 career, but lets remember what race position he retired from.

Even without the wing failure Michael just wasn't anywhere in this race. This Merc gives us the occassional glimmer of hope but basically it isn't anywhere near a championship winning car yet. It's just too tempremental and a tyre destroyer.
