Not bad for someone who is rumoured to be on thw way out at Merc...

Outqualified Rosberg by 3 tenths and looked good.

Schumi has qualified Rosberg 7-6 now, and has finished higher than him when both have finished...

Go Schumi! Podium tomorrow

My prediction is that both Merc drivers will slip backwards during the race. I think they were benefiting in Quali from their D-DRS system, but ultimately their pace will drop off much faster than most other teams as they wear their tyres faster. Thats assuming there isn't some major first lap crash like last week, then all bets are off.

Since Valencia Schumacher has out scored Rosberg 33 points to 10. He's also out qualified Nico on 4 of the last 6 occasions, doesn't really seem like the right time to be retiring.

Ofcourse he will retire if he races well. He is a former 7 time world champion not some ordinary driver like Rubens or Trulli to retire after scoring 0 points in entire season.

personally think that Rosberg is fed up with not being supported. He starts the season well then finds that the team are not focusing on him at all. Personally I think he's had enough, hence the results. So it cd be that Lewis won't be replacing MS

The trash being posted by so called modern F1 followers is unbelievable.
Examples are too numerous but here are some.
When one driver out does his team mate in an event, something which will always happen, the driver who is out done is getting no support from the team, so he is being disadvantaged by the team.
When a driver hits mechanical problems, gearbox, KERS, balance or handling problems the team is most likely conspiring against him to advantage his team mate.
Even when a driver is part of a plan in selecting a car set up if that set up turns out to be the wrong one for the race it's the team's fault, could be even claimed by the driver concerned himself.
In most of the above cases the team boss is mostly suspected of being the culprit, even if a wheel falls off.
When reading the above nobody should be offended by the word TRASH unless he is part and parcel of it all.
