Schumacher Ends Up 7th as Webber Sneaks Into British GP Victory

Schumacher To Start Third at Silverstone

After his breakthrough performance at the European Grand Prix two weeks ago, the disappointment seems to have turned into big expectations for Michael Schumacher. No big deal, it seems, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas driver qualified for P3 on the grid when the British Grand Prix gets under way in around an hour. Getting a victory is definitely not out of the question today at Silverstone, but Schumi will face a tough challenge as Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso starts at pole position and Red Bull’s Mark Webber just a spot below. “We were competitive on both the intermediate and wet tyres, so I would welcome more rain tomorrow,” said Schumacher. “Third… Continue Reading »

F1: Schumacher Claims Podium Finish in European GP

All things finally fell into place for Michael Schumacher, at least for one race. The German, who has struggled since his comeback, finally took a podium finish by nabbing third place at the 2012 European Grand Prix, boosting Mercedes AMG Petronas’s bid in the constructors standings and lifting Schumacher’s own dismal personal record so far this season. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso took the victory in a race filled with incidents, not the least of which was the one that took out Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado, who were then contesting P2.
