again. even with this kind of crappy car, ms outperformed the barby boy. but then comes the penalty.. gosh, Schumacher has been so pissed on by the powers to be.... he has been shown left right and center that there are to many people in F1 that dont want him there, specially his opponents and the stewards.. hang on.. who selects the stewards.... why is it that if MS is involved in something, its almost always him that pays the tab???

Schumi outqualifies Rosberg AGAIN... By 2 tenths this time, and Hamilton held him up to lose another two tenths...

That makes it 9-6 in quali to Schumi this year, to go with 6-1 in race finishes when both Merc GP's have finished...

Who's staying and who's going at Merc next year again?

I'm sure Lulu is pleased he's moving to a car that's only good enough for 13th and 15th...

lol are you for real? have you ever heard him critize the team after the cars hes been given? most of his success has been based on relationship with his mechanics to build the best car possible

Why not not Sauber...tey look strong....again! I guess he's made up his mind unfortunately. Must be tempting for MS to go to Sauber for one more season....butthen again he would be ridiculed by joingthe minous of F1 and deemed to look desperate. He can't win...ca he?

I think in a few years time when people look back at this era they will end up giving more respect to Schumacher for what he did especially once some of the current drivers realise how difficult it becomes to perform in your late thirties never mind late forties. At least the guy stuck it out and in this final year would be way ahead if it wasn't for poor reliability in most cases in a couple of cases his own fault for crashing.

The Mercedes team and Ross Brawn do not come out too well in all of this, they have made zero progress in the last 3 years and each year they start of with a car that is 4th best behind, Red Bull, Ferrari and Mclaren. By the end of the season their car is also behind Force India, Sauber, Williams and Lotus.

That is just not acceptable for a top team and I fear they have manage to sell the dream to Hamilton just as they did to Schumacher

MS is still the most successful all time FI driver. We are not going to see that equalled in a while if ever. The man is still a consumate professional and on a track where out and out aerodynamics are less of an advantage is as fast if not faster than the rest. The pole position at Monaco this year affirms that. He loves to race that is why he came back but it is hard to keep motivated after so many years in F1 when the technical changes are done for the "show" and have little to do with driver performance. Nobody who has ever worked with MS has ever questioned his ability to get the best out of any team he has worked with be it Benetton, Ferrari or Mercedes.
