I have no doubt about Ferrari powered cars were a bit struggling on Texas GP track. It track design suit to Mercedes and Renault powered car because Ferrari powered cars do not have straight-line speed compare to Mercedes powered cars. Race day will be different story. I hope Sauber will score some points.
What happen with Nico Rosberg car? I was surprised by his qualifying times.
He may be very disappointed. I believe if Sauber has scored some points in Texas US GP and they have prospect of beat on Mercedes at final round in Brazil GP for fifth place finished in championship points.

Schumi was driving a new coanda style exhaust, thats the reason he's up there and Rosberg isn't. I hope the Saubers can make their way through on race day, but it's going to be tough without safety cars and a good start. If they want to beat Mercedes in the constructors they better hope they can collectively outscore Schumi.
