more predictable? One of the things people always praise about MS is that he can handle whatever situation comes his way and still slaughter the field.
"He can drive half the race stuck in 5th gear and no one was even aware"
I think its cool that he came back, but don't think he will last much past this season

He's getting everything he deserves.

Fair enough, but the weather has made a real crap shoot of things. I want to see him race on some classic old tracks and either sink or swim. If Petrov can pass him at Spa in the dry while Rosberg is on the podium then he's really out of it.

I wouldn't, it an amazing track, but if your favorite driver was the main reason you went there it would suck if they didn't show. If Montoya was back I probably would have gone to Canada this year, and would be rather upset if he stopped halfway through the season.

Hell, if anything, the weather should help him and his neck.

He's not been the fastest in the rain for a while now, Alonso took it from him years ago in Hungary.

Are you talking about 2003 or 2006?

If Schuey doesn't make it to Spa, it will be OK. I've seen him race before. It's not the sole reason I'm going. I love all F1, not just Michael. I'm going to be stoked to just be at Spa, in Belgium, Paris and London. So, really, it would be a bummer, but not the end of the world by any means.

But the Bridgestones were abysmal wet tires in 2006. He was the only Bstone car in the points.

Massa finished ahead of him. It was Schumi's driving that caused him to be passed. The only reason he finished in the points was because Kubica's car was underweight anyways.

Meh, without Alonso's pit problem he would have stayed ahead of Schumacher. It was also a drying track, so not much to do with his wet weather drying. Either way, I haven't seen a truly impressive wet drive from Schumacher in 5 years, unlike his runs in 04 in Hungary and France which were truly amazing.

I pretty much did the opposite last weekend I had a terrible event ranking, 250th or something, that somehow moved me into 7th overall from 9th.

News Tony George Working Shanghai Paddock for U.S. F1 Race

Sorry I've been away for a bit... Shanghai was a very interesting, and very entertaining race!

Here is one of the more interesting stories from the paddock in Shanghai:

Tony George eyes new venue for US GP return

Tony George is interested in taking Formula One back to the United States.

We reported last weekend that the 50-year-old former boss of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was spotted in Shanghai for the Chinese Grand Prix.

George met with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone and also Zak Brown, founder and CEO of motor sport marketing firm Just Marketing who represents several high level sponsors according to the Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ).

"Would Tony George love to broker a deal to bring back a US Grand Prix? Sure," said Brown.

IBJ said sources confirmed that George was in China to discuss F1's return to America and meet with potential sponsors for a race that would not necessary take place at Indianapolis.

Indeed, new Indianapolis Motor Speedway boss Jeff Bulskus said George was not in China to represent the fabled Indy 500 venue, while Ecclestone has been pushing for a street race with the New York skyline.

Brown said: "Tony has a lot of contacts in motor sports, and he knows how to put on a US Grand Prix.

"I think if there's a role for Tony in trying to bring Formula One back to the US, he'd be willing to help. Tony and Bernie have a very good relationship, and Tony has a lot of interest in seeing F1 return to the US," he added.

Tony George, who still has an ownership stake in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, could not be reached for comment.
