Its a shame that the never breaking Ferrari has failed 2 times out of 4 and the unluckiest driver who got it has to be Rubinho. Does Ferrari need to do that much to make sure there is always an #1 and #2 driver?

Tell us what they did this time to prevent Rubens from winning Ace, because I have no idea with what sort of conspiracy they came up with today.

You didn't know that Rubinho's Ferrari broke down?
Why is it that the one of the Ferraris is realiable as it only can be and the other one isn't? the answer: they are not the same Rubinho gets the short stick, thats what Ferrari is doing to prevent him from winning.

Whatever happened we can all have our assumptions but thumbs up to Rubens for completely dominating Michael and outclassing him throughout the race. Ferrari must be wondering about the 40 million dollars they spend on Michael?

Agree with you Freud. Luca M said today "there will be life after MS" and I would not be surprised that in the next race he will be in the Ferrari garage making sure Rubinho gets fair treatment. Haven't we seen that last year?

Whilst I dont really subscribe to conspiracy theories, I do wonder whether some teams are able (or willing) to produce two top quality cars.

As has been said, If a Ferrari breaks, It is Rubens car. If a Jaguar Breaks, It is Herberts. Last year, it was always DC's McLaren that broke.

I'm not suggesting conspiracy, more a case of rescources.

Three times this season MS has outqualified and outperformed Barichelo. Once the opposite happens and you open your big mouths. Think how you'd feel in MS's place. I know what he said (that he does not treat Silverstone differently) but I don't buy it--look how he backed off from Ralf. MS has never liked Silverstone--he's won only once and, moreover, it was not a very clear win. Next round, I predict business as usual--MS outperforming RB.
As far as Barichelo is concerned, he again cracked (showing his lack of determination)and let DC overtake him for the lead. But that hardly surprises me. After all, he was second to Eddie Irvine at Jordan.
Peace

Er.

A little harsh but you tend to reflect my views. RB is good but not very good. Schumacher, for once, proved how human he is and in the end got home with 4 points. RB made a mistake whilst leading (sorry) holding up, the rest of the front runners and let DC pass. It was not, however, his fault that the car broke. He would have finished third if the car hadn't failed because MH would have passed him too.

Rated R, read this statement from Rubens. Once again his ferrari broke up.

"Around five or six laps before I retired I started to feel there was something wrong with the car. Then I began to have problems with the clutch and the throttle. That is why Coulthard managed to pass me. I spun because of the erratic behaviour of the engine, which almost died on the entry into the corner, before the power suddenly came in again. I decided to pit, but there was nothing to be done. It was a problem with the high pressure hydraulic circuit, similar to the one in Brazil, but for a different reason."

Second to EI at Jordan??? In your dreams, get your facts right.

In Australia and Brasil RB's lap times where much faster than MS's.

Funny then Ace that he didnt win either race, but oops I forgot conspiracy theory, wonder was there someone on grassy knoll out to get Rubhino

Give credit where its due, Rubens was fab in qualifiers and indeed outclassed his teammate but in race he always looked edgy and I think passing by DC was not due to problem in car just good move( and it pains me to compliment DC
For TGF damage limitation and 4 points, and I dont care at whose expense they were got. Rubens is good just not that good...whole season left and as long as he doesnt start pouting will get his deserved victory.
As for Ferrari wondering bout their $40 million spent on Schuey, 34 points from 40, 3 victories oh I'd say they are crying alright

Well, Ace, I have to agree on that one. Barichello was not second to Irvine in Jordan. He finished in 6th place with 19 points in 94 (Irvine was 14th with 6) and was 11th in 95 with 11 points (Irvine 12th with 10). But for Australia and Brazil I have to disagree:
Australia: QUAL: MS-1:31:075
RB-1:31:102
Race fastest lap: RB-1:31:481

Brazil: QUAL: MS-1:14:508
RB-1:14:636
Race fastest lap: MS-1:14:755
I'm not even going to talk about Imola. No matter how you slice it, MS was faster than RB in Australia and Brazil combined.
Peace

As Freud Sr. once said, "Sometimes a cigar is only a cigar."

That is, sometimes the car breaks because sometimes cars break. Especially F1 cars. This in no way takes away from Rubens' storming drive up til that point. And I would not be surprised if he wins a race real soon. Before he goes to McLaren.

I did notice however, that Cranky Mika started in 3rd place and never got any higher than that except by attrition. Personally I think he is a quitter. But that is only what I think.

How will Ferrari win the Contructors title when it has one of it's cars not scoring points.

Liz, Mika is still my fave, but I agree with you about his determination. I think he showed a lot of will in '98, but that season may have been the anomoly. I suspect his drive and passion are gone. When things are going his way, he's fast and precise, but when he isn't in the class of the field, he is pretty lackluster.
