@AngusMack and all Schu detractors
IMHO if Schu did anything wrong at all, he failed to warm-up his brakes after such a long safety car period. His brakes failed when he needed them the most, because of this.

I would also like to add that IMHO, the Schu will stick around until the end of 2014, so that he can develop the new car/engine for Merc and then sit on the pit wall, devising strategies for them! Who else could do it better?

Long live the master!

Great race and I think even if Ham did not have a problem Vettel would have got him. He was stronger today and it was clearly showing after the first pit stop by the way he closed in behind Ham.

Richard, friction material in the diff (LSD) explained.
The F1 (LSD) deferential in general is an electro hydraulically controlled epicycle gear type limited slip deferential, using five or so pairs of sun gears running on needle bearings, a three or four plate clutch the clamping load on which is applied by an annular hydraulic cylinder, controls friction across the deferential.
Hope you got were the friction material came from.

schu4. when brakes dont work, they do not lock up the wheels with plumes of smoke pouring from the locked wheels.
the brakes worked properly, it was just the person who was pressing the pedal, hadnt warmed himself up!

and that is not the first time that he hasrammed other cars, from behind.

Richard you seem to be very good at opinionating based on your obviously good research ability, but in my long driving experience, inadequate warming of tyres and/or brakes is exactly when lock ups are more likely to occur and are more difficult to avoid.
