Schumi had power steeing problems

When on earth will his luck turn for good on this comeback.

He almost got eliminated on Q1 itself.With the chequred flag coming down the timing screen showed MS as out and I almost fell down from my sofa,only to see the tv camera's showing him just starting his final lap.

And guess what,it was RB on the radio asking "Michael we have a power steering problem.Can you manage to drive around that".The master responded by putting in his personal best lap times on all sectors to make the cut

I guess even if your name is Michael Schumacher,you can do only so much when the lady luck for some reason isnt smiling on you

What a qualifying session! More than the grid order, one has to take a look at times to know how competitive the grid has becomeWonder how Vettel managed to post a such a time at a crucial period.

Any of the top 5 could win the race tomorrow if they could manage their pit strategies.MercGP are becoming the laugh of the town. Even they don't seem to know what they lack in their car.

Clueless set of people

The team could have achieved wonders with Schumi and Nico driving.

A badly set car and great driver and a quick learner = Never can form the Trinity.

Hope Schumi and Nico does some magic tomorrow to drive home some points.

Webber had a massive shunt while he was trying to attack Kovalainen's Lotus. Webber's Red Bull literally took off after losing front wing and came to ground after a somersault and then finally into the barriers.

Heard about "Redbull gives you wings"

And Redbull F1 with Webber flies, but today the way Webbers car flew was

The track length seems to be tooooo long and boring.

Coverage by Star sports is horrible and the commentators are busy talking to each other. Where's all the F1 excitement gone.

So Heikki does a "Mark Webber" to Mark Webber who then decides to overtake the cars ahead of him in the air instead of the track.

That royally screws the race for Alonso,Massa.Again lady luck turns her back on Schumi who would have easily finished ahead of his team mate today

Vettel wins, but i think there will be few post race penalties dished out.

Disappointing strategies from Ferrari and Mercedes.

Alonso seems to have lost his defensive skills. There was a similar situation at the beginning of the season when Button (I think) tried to overtake him while he was on worn out tyres but he defended it well.
Ferrari now needs new drivers, strategists, engineers and management.
They need a NEW TEAM!

If not for the drive through penalty, Vettel would have been in the barriers while trying to defend Hamilton.

I think Alonso was quite peeved that Lewis holding him during the SC period cost him a lot of positions.That cant be ruled out considering how much crybaby Alonso is.

However,the whole race he was stuck behind Beumi and Kobayashi overtakes both of them in just 2 laps.

Alonso losing defensive skills? What do you expect him to do when a guy with fresh tires is on his heals. Also any amount of points scored is going to be valuable since all the racers in front him except Seb and Lewis were being investigated and could face a potential penalty. So instead of fighting for the position, he decided to take the safer option available.

Feeling gutted for Schumi though. 11th at the end of lap 1 and all he gets to do during the race is to test the working of the tires on his Merc. Somehow all seems to go wrong with MercGp at once! They have to get their act together and find the pace in their car to save their season.

Are we forgetting Kobiyashi, that guy gave it all, from an impressive 3rd to 9th and back to 7th on the finishing line

Again he made Alonso look like a sitting duck. lol....

Sutil drove a clean race, go Force India Go.

Mercedes GP has lost it, they've gone nuts, from being the top contenders, to the middle and now being amongst the back markers, with such talented drivers, its crime to give them such horrible cars.


Schumi showed, he's got what it takes to be the Best finishing in that position even after 3 pit stops.

That was down to the fresh set of tyres on Kobayashi's car vs worn out tyres on Alonso's car

What kinda track is this Valencia? There are so many places that can host a good 'European' GP. There is no place to over take and it is just a waste of time to see cars going round and round this horrendous track.

I loved the Red Bulls today, Webber was the only thing worth seeing in this race

Get rid of this track Bernie!

Button, Barrichello, Hulkenberg, Kubica, Petrov, Sutil, Liuzzi, Buemi and Pedro de la Rosa have been handed 5-second time penalties for driving too quickly under Safety Car conditions...
Glock gets 20 sec penalty for ignoring blue flags
