Look, when was last time that these drivers outqualified their team-mates under normal circumstances by 1.5 sec? Consistently?

You have selected a little part of what was written. Try again:

"We have now reached a point that a driver can make little difference in lap times (certainly much less than in the past). The cars don’t twitch under breaking, don’t power slide, you can’t miss a gear change and you can’t over-rev the engine."

See what he means?

I think that up to a point it is true, historically the cars were getting easier to drive as years went by, to the point that they had to ban the electronic aids to bring the driver element back to the sport. But even with the ban of the gizmos, the cars are far less temperamental now than they used to be in the past. The drivers now make a difference, but much smaller than what it used to be. That's what Abu means.

Reading some posts and articles from other sites.

Most of guys track side seems to agree that Michael is much more confident compare to last season.

Plus he seems to be very pleased with the car.

Now on tech part of Mercedes:

Quote:
But the attention is on Mercedes at the moment, not least because they did not run the new passive F Duct system which has been cleared by the FIA’s Charlie Whiting. Perhaps we will see it on the car tomorrow. It’s a powerful tool, but its benefit will not be seen here. Malaysia and especially China with its long straight will really show the benefit.

Holy smoke, just saw MS driving at FP 2 on video 8O 8O 8O 8O

He doing brilliant...literally driving the wheels off the car...


Far far far far more agressive and more confident compared with 2011 driving style....

The track was still bit wet and he literally flying around the circuit 8O 8O

Saw the live stream this morning too, Schumi was a beast on that damp/drying-up track!

Here's hoping he keeps this up through out the season :thumbup: :thumbup:

Not a big Schumi fan but saw that and took a punt on backing him each way for Pole.

£20 at 14 to 1 if we get a Schumi pole.

Highly unlikely but fingers crossed!

Actually according to Merc GP official site...Schumacher is using special gloves designed only for him....much thinner than version Nico has...since Nico likes the ones he currently has.

Michael Schumacher
“Today was a nice start into a hopefully exciting season, and certainly two promising sessions for us. However, I would not go so far as to speak about being confident, as the weather conditions were too mixed to gain a clear picture. We know what Friday sessions are for and don’t know what fuel loads others were running. On the other hand, it is good to see that we were competitive in different circumstances today and that the car provides good handling – I just feel it.”

Counting on you Michael :thumbup:

I hope Schumi's mega start would let him to leapfrog at least Grosjean and one Macca :smug:

With Merc super F-Duct I hope Schumi would tear through the pack and go for P1!!

Indeed, and he was only one tenth behind Lewis until the final sector. A great performance. I am just waiting for the stewards now ...

Ah thanks.
EB being a little !&^@9 Meh. I knew about the protest, but when I read Stewards I thought maybe something was under investigation.

Impressive stuff my Mercedes, especially Michael. Even with normal circumstances Schumi and Nico both will be nice contenders for podium, even win if Mclaren race pace isn't that good.
