Sadly for Merc they are one of the few legit teams that haven't caught onto the spec formula. Ross has had three years to see how the others do it. Sauber and Lotus have and to some extent so has FI.

Schumacher is a diplomatic driver as can be when it comes to the team he is driving for or he has driven for, in fact that is one of the aspects that sets him apart and above all drivers of his generation, having said that my personal opinion re the 2012 Mercedes design is the team can only afford to try and do a damage limiting effort for the remaining four races, this because their major resources has long been transferred on the next design and here again there is another problem because these major resources couldn't have been fully concentred on next year's car alone but some of which would have been already concentrating on the all new 2014 effort, having said all that I was always of the opinion that at least a top team always have a fifty/fifty chance of hitting it right with a new car, more so Mercedes which I regard as having the strongest technical team at least on paper.

Nico is only capable of big results when he's got the right car underneath him. He's like Vettel in many respects.

As for his rant about about people pushing too early in the race, this is often the best chance to make up places, some mistakes are bound to happen in the midfield at the start, this is normal. With the exception of Grosjean I don't think any other any other driver has been pushing too hard at the start all year, they've been one off accidents and racing incidents for the most part.

2009, Sunny Blue,
Schumacher a diplomat. I think a close look at his F1 history
would say otherwise. Mercedes has to shoulder the blame for
most of the poor, nonperformance by the old champ as well as
Rosberg.. The car was, and is a dud. The Champ may be trying to soften the truth. Mercedes this season is a "inconsistent
non-performer". Schumacher is beaning kind, with a smile,
with kind words, a 'diplomat' no way, just sugar coating the
truth. Next season Mercedes will be in the spotlight because
of the different path they decided to take. Time will tell.
Methinks that tag of non-performer will come to an end.
Sunny, baby thanks for the laughs, (do old men giggle) not surprised, that I is...

Jose, forget about Schumacher at least you know the car is a dud, as for next year do no lose heart as they as much as others has a fifty/fifty chance of hitting it right, at least my assurance should keep your new alliance dream alive.

2009, Sunny Blue..
50/50 chance, you say. How you come up with the odds is
puzzling. My dream, yes and add Lewis Hamilton I guess
a flip of the coin Mercedes wins the WDC. On the other hand using our goofy formula no WDC but Hamilton and Nico will
still collar a few wins. On the other side, McLaren's plan-B
option will not produce results better that this season . Simple
fact their is no replacement for Lewis Hamilton.
That other question was answered this Morning. Old Dogs
do 'Giggle'. Thanks I'm having a good one..

Old Dog, Jose
