I dunno guys. It seems to me that if Schumacher were fast enough, why finish second? As hard as they run those cars even when loafing, if it's going to break, it's going to break.

I know that Schumacher was heavy, but that wouldn't have accounted for the monstrous (by F1 standards) pace difference between he and Hakkinen. I have to think it was a setup/car thing, which explained why he was so annoyed in the press conference.

His comment was really funny in a wry sort of way, though: "I parked and let him past," or something to that effect.
