Hasn't really gone for him in races, but Merc has been poor except for hitting the sweet spot on setup and tyres in China - when Michael would have challenged for the win but the car let him down.

Worth pointing out that he leads Nico in qualifying this year.

I think it would be quite a fitting end in Brazil to have a chaotic weather blighted race with Schumie winning. Unlikely, but would be cool.

I'm surprised that Schu miscalculated to greatly. Even most people on here knew Braun's advantage disappeared towards the end of the season, and Button and Rubens just managed to hold on to their huge lead that they build up early on.

In the last handful of races, Burron barely finished in the top 10.

They wouldn't/couldn't have built on that success, unless they came up with another brilliant idea, before it got banned anyway, or adopted by others, but that's almost like winning the lotto twice. And Braun didn't exactly have the genius aerodynamicist.

We'll see how Hamilton fares. I predict he'll be a lot more quiet on the radio and in interviews.

"I'm going to turn this around now and say i don't think he deserved those 7 titles because i still cannot put him on the same level as Fangio, Clark, Prost, Senna".

Say What??
Gumball Logic, nuts, Methinks he was awarded 7WDC's
because he won races. Different level, bet your ass, that
he really is..
Man, some people.

Badman, Jose

I don't know why people go back and dig up names and compare them to a name in the Modern era, both Fangio and Clark drove racing that hardly made 120 MPH for example Jim Clark won at Monza in at a time of 2:24:19, Fangio won it in 2:25:04 (both 50 laps) (My Audi would fancy its chance in breaking that record) Schumacher won it in 1:14:51 (53 longer laps) Cars now are twice as faster.

andy. what a ridiculous comment. maybe you should strip your audi of all its electronics, put on skinny tyres, drum brakes etc and drive around tracks that were little better than rallycross circuits.

what you said is a bit like comparing your modern car, to the first benz. totally and utterly different.
could you handle monster cars with 800bhp on hard rubber strips?

stick with your audi a1, and leave racing to the proffessionals.

Richard calm down

Fangio's car ran at 190bhp, I dont have an Audi a1, I have a S8 Quattro

I dont know you, so why the insult,

I do crack a lot of jokes but Fangios cars

Alfa Romeo 158/159 = 190 BHP
Maserati 250F = 270 BHP
Silver Arrow = 290 BHP




Compared to Ferrari F2003-GA = 930 BHP
