it's nice to be back.
Ok on topic, what chances do we think the great one has this season.
Honestly. I'm seeing the start of a push for next season for him.
Think about it.
2010. Bedding in season
2011. Rubbish car. But more consistent that 2010. More points and some great drives.
2012. Car is improving seems to be up the sharp end after the 2nd test. Should challenge for the podium.
2013. 1 last push for the title i think before retireing again in readyness for the new rules in 2014.

It does seem that 1996 in the ferrari is 2010
1997/8 is 2011/2. Rubbish car. But developed into a front runner
2000-4 is 2013 with a front running championship car.

2013 seems to be a possibility with some noises about renewing Michaels contract doing the rounds, his comeback has ruined his statistics for sure so no hurt in trying one more year, gives fans like me a reason to watch F1 with some interest. After all everyone needs a favorite in any sport to follow it with excitement.

Im worried...

Nico revealed that Merc has front tyre issues...and that haven't found a solution yet...

On longer runs, front tyres wear is quite big.

Tyre wear, heating issues, seems like its 2010, 2011 all over.

michael is alot more consistent with tyre management.. His longer runs at barcelona seemed to show that. Consistent 1'23-1'24's on 18 lap stints. I'm not sure about red bull or mclarens tyre management. Didn't button only do 1'25's.

Could that be because of their new "F-duct" brings more downforce to the front tires?

But by the time the car hit the track the bodywork had been modified to feature sections coated with a ceramic thermal barrier, but despite this the car quickly showed signs of getting too hot, with scorch marks burning through the silver stickers. This could be a re-occurence of the overheating problems suffered by the W02 at this time a year ago.

It would be good news if W03 had so much downforce. That would really help them challenge Red Bull.

I just hope this year he'll step on the first step of the podium again. :)

Wonder there was nothing from Schumi on this issue. W03 more suited to Schumi?

I wouldn't say...

W01 had same issue...front tires would get worn too quickly...

W02 had same issue but with rear tires...

Mercedes AMG doesnt see it that way. The "old horse" is still value for money, and his records stay no matter how much you laugh.

Post subject:  Re: The Official Michael Schumacher thread

Michael showed enough talent last season to show he still has something.

If HE gets a half decent car, he will be on the podium.
And the fans will take that for now.

Thr Mercedes will be a step closer to the bulls and Dont be surprised if they are racing against and beating Mclaren.

Post subject:  Re: The Official Michael Schumacher thread

Really skeptical about the Mclaren front nose, now that its legal they might have a big advantage over all stepped noses. Anyway I wouldnt mind Michael and Mercedes taking the fight to Red Bull and Mclaren

Post subject:  Re: The Official Michael Schumacher thread

Personally, I can't see Schumi getting another WDC :-(( I think that he's just a bit too old now, (being 43) and I can't see him winning in a straight out fight with some of the younger drivers on the grid (Vettel, Hamilton, Alonso).

That doesn't mean that it won't happen though.. :o

I'm sure this years car is an improvement from 2011, so Schumi will at least take some podiums...hopefully one or two in the top step :)

Well said that man. Having Schumi back is just fantastic and F1 fans whatever their feelings on him should realise he makes F1 just plain better.

Post subject:  Re: The Official Michael Schumacher thread

I fully agree, as long as it doesn't take more WDC's. Schumacher's last comeback in 1999, after the leg accident, was followed by 5 championships in a row (and nearly killing the sport in the process). So yeah, I'm happy he's on the grid, he's a legend in movement, but no more wins in a row please...

Anyway, I hope Michael can get some great finishes this year, hopefully Mercedes have something up their sleeve.

As fans there are so many better things to remember too. We all have enough reason good or bad, to remember him long enough before he fades into the sunset again. Hopes he makes it memorable one more time before he bids goodbye, but not in the way he gave Barri a scare of his lifetime ;)

"Michael raced against drivers like Senna, Mansell and myself and proved immediately that he could be competitive and better," the Italian wrote on his personal website

Not to forget Hakkinen, Coulthard, Montoya and so on. To hell with the people who always moan Michael did not have a fair opposition.
