Brilliant racing by Michael Schumacher gave him a comfortable win over Fernando Alonso in the European GP. That run by Schumacher when Alonso pitted for the second time was amazing, and that is the typical Schumacher that we all know – going flat out when he needs to, and making the other team pay for their strategic mistake. Of course, Ferrari pit crew also needed to make a clean, fast stop and they did. Classic stuff.
So Michael Schumacher, and not Kimi, is the biggest threat to Alonso in the championship hunt, looks like. But at the same time, since Alonso does not lose too many points per GP, he is going to be extremely tough to beat. The other drivers will need a couple of DNF’s from him in order to make this championship exciting.
I am sorry, but McLaren Mercedes are not competitive at all. What is the point of having fast drivers when the car is not reliable? First of all, they were not able to qualify higher than P6 and then as JPM was making a charge towards the end, he lost his car and Kimi just couldn’t push hard enough to pass Massa.
Has Kimi lost motivation since he may not be at McLaren next year? Has he signed a deal already?
