If you're referring to the Michelin tyre debacle, that was already 2 years ago. It was so awful it's hard to blot out the memory.

If you're talking about the accident-plagued race, isn't that one of the main reasons people watch F1? To see cars worth millions get bent out of shape occasionally? Or a pit mechanic get run over when the lollipop guy screws up? Last race it was the Ferrari front jackman's turn to crack under pressure. With a TV audience of millions watching, I bet those guys are glad no one can see their faces.

Down the page we had a thread comparing driving styles; 'Schumacher driving technique.'

Schumacher was the MEISTER at adapting to the conditions.
