  1. All nice and good, but could someone please explain what we are looking at.

    1. The solid line is Schumacher’s lap times, the dotted lines are Nico’s.

      The numbers on the bottom are the lap numbers and the ones on the side are seconds, whatever time they did on the lap is charted on there – tells you who did a faster or a slower lap.

      e.g: 1.st lap was just under 130secs for MSC and 128 for NS and so on…

      the two peaks are the pit stops.looks like lap 15 and 16. quickest lap was done by MSC but overall Nico was faster than him.

      Capiche?

      1. Thanks a lot, Kevin.

        However, I would say Schumy did a better race. Did Rosberg improve his position from start to finish, urm let me think, nope! That is what people are not thinking of, all they are saying Ros finished ahead of MSC.
        Finishing ahead is just a part, progression in a race is another. All have to be analysed.

        1. i disagree, you cant rate him on progression, as he finished as high as was possible in the car he has, schumacher didnt. you cant finish higher then you started if you already did such a good job that you cant get any more out of the car.

  2. honestly, other then the first 9 laps of the race, Rosberg and Schumacher seem evenly matched.

    1. both very consistent too

    2. what do you expect when MSC and ROS drive one behind the other for most of the race.

  3. I wasn’t surprised to see Rosberg pip Schumi in Qualifying and in the race due to track position.

    Considering Schumi’s been absent for so long and now into his 40’s I would say he is doing a bang up job.

    As for Rosberg, he showed his skill and pace in the Williams with some great drives last year – he is the real deal.

  4. I still remember Nico’s first race back in 2006 when he started, he finished 7th which I thought was a good result with consistent driving throughout the race.

    All he needs to do now is keep his gob shut and keep up the consistency to gain more respect from the drivers and fans.

  5. In Football they have a saying the the returning from break player is fit but not yet ‘match fit’ that’s Schumacher, watch out Nico!!

  6. I think Schu is race-rusty, not to be able to get past Alguersuari, but he will come after it in a few more races.
    Nico is a driver I have long wanted to see in a competitive car, and I think this year he will come closer than ever, especially if Michael finds his old skills for assisting in developing the car further. It will be an interesting season with the battle between the top 4 teams, and will Renault be able to get up there?

  7. But Schumi is Mercedes’s new face now. They will earn $$$ with him neither Rosberg.

  8. Well, its a big dilemma,
    MSC vs ROS,
    Experienced vs Young,
    Has everything to lose vs has everything to gain,
    Pressure of fame vs pressure of Father’s fame
    Returner vs Shiner
    I don’t care about ROS vs I have to outperform MSC

    MSC,, he has everything to lose and nothing to gain with his comeback and to tell me that we will need couple of races to regain his form, I disagree,, Its Michael,, he was the magician of F1,, in wet and in dry,, no matter what stage of the race, fuel, tire,, he use to get it but seems that he is out of tricks, may be its due to the fact that he is under a great pressure,, yes to prove that he is still the godfather of F1,, its no longer the battle of MSC vs Prost or Senna or Mika or even ROS. This the battle of MSC (2004) to MSC (2010). You could have seen that clearly today in the Q3 garage while they stopped the race how pressured he was. Never seen it so obvious on Shumi ever before.

    As for ROS,, no question he is a skilful driver, Calm and difficult to be pressured, Hope he holds his P2 although he is not so known for aggressive overtakes,

    Prediction for Sunday:
    Safety car 1st lap, Alonza, Massa or Button.
    MSC best is 6th, ROS best is 4th
    Redbull 1,2
    Kubica,, Aggrasive start

    1. “As for ROS,, no question he is a skilful driver, Calm and difficult to be pressured,”

      Rosberg has nothing to lose and everything to gain by racing against Schumacher. While Schumacher is quite the opposite. So you are quite right about the pressure.

      It seems that Schumacher is being a little conservative if we compare him to rosberg, which could explain the slower laps at start of each race.

    Now at the Spa race and it seems that Schumacher wasn’t ‘race-rusty’, however instead it seems that Rosberg is just a good driver like Schumacher is. On average they have been as quick as eachover and i personally think that when the Mercedes Gp has been quick this for some reason seems to be when Schumacher cannot get a setup. The reason he cannot get a setup no one will ever knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! Mwahahaha:)

  10. Why cant the media and other anti schumi fans leave him alone, he will quit when he is good and ready. just because he has had a crappy car with a crappy season it don’t mean he has lost his touch, when he gets a good car he will be on top form and blow the rest of the drivers away, has for his age it is utter rubbish saying he is too old. age has nothing to do with it, if my husband can still ride a motorbike and his reflects are pretty dam good at his age of 69 then Michael;s will be quicker and better, just leave him alone.

    1. “age has nothing to do with it”

      If that’s the case, then why don’t Mercedes sign three times WDC Sir Jackie Stewart to partner Michael next season at Mercedes? He has a proven track record at the highest level.

      We’re talking about F1 where every millisecond counts here, not someone riding a motorbike.

      1. Well while of course age has to do with it, Schumacher is still better than half of the grid and I’d say he deserves a place there if he still wants to race. And if Jackie was faster than some drivers and still wanted to race, why not, I say? I know a lot of people want to see rookies enter the grid and all just for the opportunity and the fresh faces but most of times they’re more like Chandhok than Hamilton.
