Another race, another mixed finish for Mercedes AMG Petronas. The 2012 Monaco Grand Prix ended with Red Bull’s Mark Webber on top, followed by Nico Rosberg of Mercedes and Fernando Alonso of Ferrari. Michael Schumacher, who led everyone else in the qualifying sessions making a five-place grid penalty seem negligible, ended his Monte Carlo campaign with a thud after retiring in lap 65. It was yet another disappointing race for Schumacher, who was not able to finish after fuel pressure problems in his car caused the German to cut his stint short.

Schumacher: I Want to Pay Mercedes Back

After his stellar performance in qualifying for this year’s edition of the Monaco Grand Prix, Michael Schumacher expressed that his desire to pay Mercedes back figured in his determination to gain a good qualifying result even with a 5-place penalty knocking him back to P6 once the actual race starts. “I want to pay back to Mercedes for all the trust they’ve put in me,” said the 43-year old 7-time Formula One champ, who has struggled all season long but looks to make a big splash at one of the most anticipated races of every F1 season. “Let’s hope it is payback time on Sunday afternoon.” When asked about his… Continue Reading »

Mercedes Drivers Excited for Monaco GP

The Monaco Grand Prix is fast approaching, and F1 fans can’t help but anticipate all the action that can be watched by the time this weekend hits. One can only imagine how excited the drivers themselves are, and some of them recently chimed in on the upcoming F1 race. Let’s see what the Mercedes drivers have to say. “Monaco is just a circuit of its own very unique character,” says 7-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher. “In a way, you could look at it with a big portion of irony with regards to the contradiction that, for so many years we have successfully campaigned for more track safety, and then we… Continue Reading »

Rosberg Says Title Still Possible

The Spanish Grand Prix was a difficult one for Mercedes AMG Petronas; Michael Schumacher retired after a lap 12 collision with Bruno Senna (and subsequently penalized for Monaco), and Nico Rosberg lost fifth place near the end after some tire problems. Still, Rosberg says the championship is right there within his grasp. The thing is, with Pastor Maldonado claiming his maiden F1 victory last weekend, many of the other title contenders did not gain much headway in the standings. Fernando Alonso’s second-place finish allowed him to tie Sebastian Vettel at the top. Both have 61 points, and while Rosberg is at seventh right now, it is a mere 20 points… Continue Reading »

Schumacher Gets 5-Place Penalty for Barcelona Crash

If you watched the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix last weekend, chances are you saw a disappointing end to Michael Schumacher’s race when his MGP W03 collided with the back of Bruno Senna’s Williams. Now, the verdict is out, and the race stewards have given Schumi the unpleasant reward of a 5-place grid penalty at the Monaco Grand Prix in two weeks. This penalty was given once the stewards reviewed the footage of the collision on lap 12 of the race and deemed it was caused by the German seven-time F1 champion for Mercedes AMG Petronas. Schumacher had claimed that it was Senna’s fault, but Senna countered and obviously the stewards… Continue Reading »
