Onboard of Schumi's run around the Nordschleife. The first 2:30 mins are "reasonably fast", but after that he slowed down considerably. He probably had to because he had to finish together with the other Mercedes cars. I would have liked seeing a quick lap :nod:

Boo hoo, I wonder why they bother to run F1 cars at the norschleife if they are going to make them go at a honda civic's speed. That was much worse than Heidfeld's lap with the BMW, who didnt go fast either.

We saw Felix Baumgartner do a freefall from planet mars to planet earth, but we will never see an F1 goint full speed at the norschleife and doing a proper laptime??? Big unexplainable mystery, and shame.

The Nordschliefe is unsafe, partly because of its 22km lap length and high safety requirment in personnel, equipment and vehicles. Also Schumacher was only doing a demo, could not smash the car. In any case any fast lap time would have been meaningless.

Maybe Mercedes should have asked their new employee Lauda to have a go at setting a fast lap time?

LOL No It wouldn't. It would be the first flat-out F1 lap ever since the last F1 GP held there. It would actually be the fastest lap ever at nurburgring, surely. Meaningless maybe for people who don't care.
So many drivers would do it in case MS was scared, which i dont think he was.

Even if Michael had driven at 90% of both his & the cars potential he most likely would have beaten Stefan's record.

It was a demo run of Mercedes, tuned down to have a finish with all cars together, as part of the build-up to the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race. They weren't trying to break a record or anything

I don't think that was what Beschy meant. I think we all miss him given he's been out of action for nigh on three months now.

There has to come a time when enough is enough, whether that means he wakes up or the worst. But I think as his fans we should carefully prepare for the worst case. He won't give up, we know that but not every fight can be won in the world sadly.

Keep fighting Michael is what I'll leave on.

:thumbup: The waiting to find out which way it is going to end is so stressful as a fan that I can't even start to imagine what his family is going thru :(

After Spa FP2 today on BBC2 and I'm currently watching a show with Murray Walker and Suzi Perry about Michael Schumacher. They've chosen to show highlights of 3 races from his career - the 1994 British GP (won by Damon Hill, Schumacher disqualified); Australia 1994 (yes that one!) and his first win for Ferrari at Spain 1996.

What the hell is that about? BBC still bearing grudges?

I didn't see the show, but could it be more about the British media's addiction to controversy rather than a grudge? From what I see, Murray Walker always has the utmost respect and admiration for Schumacher, he was one of the few being really classy about him while he was British sports' enemy number 1 in the Hill years. As for Suzie, she just blows with the wind and plays the media role. I remember her throwing Vettel under the bus tabloid lynch mob style post race multi21 gate, a real media pawn. I wouldn't pay attention to her.

I agree, Perry sounds absolutely clueless when talking about F1.

I think showing his Spanish win in 1996 is hardly bearing a grudge. Of course, I didn't see the programme, so I have no idea what was said. But that race is one of very, very few races I have missed in 30+ years. And I would like to have seen it. Many consider it one of his very best.

They might perhaps have focused on a better Schumacher race than the British Grand Prix of '94, but it would be difficult to paint a full picture of him without Australia '94.

No doubt Spain 1996 was a great win. But the inclusion of Silverstone 1994 was bizarre at best
