Sorry buddy i wasn't talking about tobacco advertising but of the f-duct they have copied from mclaren

even the splitter and barge boards seem to be different but don't have good pictures

Also note that Schumi is faster than rosberg in first practice, early days; but the new car seems to suit his driving style better

Nice to see Schumi in top 3 for the Practice 1.

Even the second practice session he's topping the charts

I'am loving it.

Redbulls are looking strong.

Ferrari's dont look like they are making any fresh inroads.

Mclaren cars also seems to be better.

Looks like the new chassis seems to work for schumi's driving style. Lets wait and see what happens at the Qualifying and race. If the same continues, then schumi is back where he belongs. But still mercedes seems not upto the level of fighting with the front runners. Is Rosberg also running with the new chasis?

So the F1 show moves on to Europe. Most cars have updates for Barcelona. If the rain keeps away in the next few European races, we should see 3-4 contenders pulling away from the rest in the championship race.

When it comes to Hardcore F1 discussion, we cannot discuss deviating from the legend schumi

Shows what importance he is to F1.

I seriously hope it does not rain on the Race Day.

I wish for the same. I dream of seeing Schumi on the Podium this race,, Tooo optimistic , but cant rule it out.

Redbulls are so damn competent all through the practice and qualifying, but they are not able to get their act together when it comes to the race day.

I dont like Redbull, but the way they get on top, amazing.

It seems that the Redbulls are in a league of their own in Catalunya. Schumacher looks quick in the practice sessions as compared to his team mate. A top-5 finish cannot be ruled out.

The top 5 shows the same results throughout Q1,Q2, and Q3.

P1 Webber Redbull
P2 Vettel Redbull
P3 Hamilton Mclaren
P4 Alonso Ferrari
P5 Button Mclaren
P6 M Schumi Mercedes GP

Hope its a dry race tomorrow.

what a joke, why not other way round when Roseberg used to perform better.. this shows, with a better car, Schumi is better than the rest.

As i've always said, Mercedes GP cars are not the fastest on the grid. We need to wait a bit for them to get that elusive pace.

Put Schumi in a Redbull , then the records will tumble.

Coming back to the other part of F1.

I had expected some better results from our very own Force India, sadly not much of improvements. Massa still looks sketchy.

Its nice to see Schumi feeling comfortable in the car and a P6. Now my wish if Schumi could grab a place in the podium tomorrow. But in the press he has said that he has brought the best of the car, so he doesn't seem to confident :(
Hope there will be a surprise from Schumi

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER
"Today’s qualifying was straightforward in my view. We had a good car yesterday meaning that conditions were quite ideal for us in terms of balance and so on. Today admittedly, the car was not as perfect. It is little things that can trigger that change one way or the other, and whatever happened today just triggered us to fall over the edge towards the downside a little. Nevertheless, I feel a lot more comfortable driving the car that I have in my hands now. But there is a maximum that you can get out of it and that is what we have achieved today."

Well i never mentioned you were talking about the Tobacco ad actually. One of the ferrari f-duct images you uploaded had the new livery on it and i was talking about that.

Anyways good to see Michael outqualifying Nico for the first time this season. Waiting to see if he can finish in the same order.

Default Mark Webber wins!!

What a drive by Mark Webber. Congratulations!! A well deserved 1st place.

Absolute bad luck and unfortunate end to Hamiltons race. 2 laps before the end of the race must really hurt.

BUT to top it all, what an amazing drive by Vettel. He practically drove the last 10 laps without any brakes. Awesome.

All in all, an entertaining race.

I just loved the race

Webber was untouchable throughout the race, Alonso did a fantastic job in front of his home crowd. Vettel had his scares, but holded on well for a deserving 3rd.

Hamilton had no clues, when his luck ran out, minutes before a podium. Tough luck for him.

And FINALLY Jenson Button understood how to grin when he stayed behind a fierce Schumi. The Legend has arrived with his car for a deserving 4th. He made my day.
