Non scherzarci, ci metto la firma per un settimo...davanti a Nico, una buona volta. :blum3:

Il sogno ? sesto..., ma non mi allargo troppo. :yes:

 

Potrebbe anche fare il settimo tempo in qualifica, ma dietro a Rosberg (sesto).......

Durante la conferenza stampa organizzata per festeggiare i 20 anni di Michael Schumacher in Formula 1, il sette volte iridato ha ammesso che all?epoca del suo debutto (era il 1991) non pensava minimamente di possedere le qualit? per potersi confrontare con Ayrton Senna o Alain Prost, il massimo della professionalit? di quei tempi.

 

Il campione 42enne adesso ? il pilota pi? vincente nella storia di questo sport, grazie alle sue 91 vittorie, i 154 podi e le 68 pole position conquistate. Ai tempi del sodalizio con Jordan (durato poche gare), l?idea di confrontarsi con grandi rivali quali Senna e Prost lo intimoriva non poco. ?Dall?esterno, per come la vedo io, non avrei mai pensato di poterli avvicinare in termini di prestazioni. Loro [senna, Prost, Mansell, ndr.] erano il massimo all?epoca.

 

?Ho fatto qui a Spa le mie prime esperienze e da l? in poi ho acquisito sempre pi? fiducia nel mio mezzo. Alla fine della giornata siamo tutti esseri umani, quindi non c?era motivo di temere questo o quell?altro; anche oggi ? cos?, questo ? il bello della F1?.

 

Il Kaiser verte la discussione sul presente e rivela che non avrebbe mai immaginato di correre ancora dopo 20 anni di militanza: ?Sono cose difficili da prevedere, ? una situazione insolita. Ma sono orgoglioso di dove mi trovo. Festeggiare proprio a Spa ? anche una sensazione magnifica, perch? ? proprio qui che tutto ha avuto inizio?.

 

Alla domanda se avesse dei rimpianti o se avrebbe fatto alcune cose in maniera diversa, Schumacher ha risposto: ?Certo. Sicuramente nella carriera di ogni persona capita di commettere qualche errore, facendo una sintesi del tutto. Prendendo tutto quello che ho fatto in questi 20 anni e potendo tornare indietro, vorrei fare certe cose in modo diverso. In ogni caso, nella vita bisogna commetterli gli errori per capire che sono tali e imparare da essi?.

 

Il Campione del Mondo, Sebastian Vettel, aveva solo quattro anni quando Michael Schumacher si apprestava a esordire in F1 con la Jordan, sullo stesso circuito che vedr? l?apertura della seconda parte di stagione 2011 questo weekend. Il tedesco della Red Bull ha recentemente dichiarato di essere venuto a conoscenza del Kaiser giocando con le macchinine all?asilo. ?Mi ricordo la prima volta che siamo andati a Hockenheim con mio padre a vedere le prove libere? ha detto Vettel. ?Siamo scesi fino alla prima chicane, pioveva a dirotto e Michael guidava quella Benetton gialla.

 

?Probabilmente era solo un giro di riscaldamento, ma ne restai affascinato. Poi nessuno scese pi? in pista, pioveva davvero troppo. Quando facevo karting, Michael era una sorta di eroe per tutti noi ragazzi?.

 

Vettel poi rammenta il primo incontro con il suo idolo: ?? stato alla fine di una gara a Kerpen. Lui consegnava i trofei. Ho avuto modo di incontrarlo e stringergli la mano. Non avrei mai pensato che saremmo stati uno accanto all?altro, oggi, in F1. Sarebbe stato da pazzi aspettarselo. Ovviamente ho molto rispetto per lui: ? stato l?eroe della mia infanzia?.

Michael Schumacher gets new race engineer at Mercedes

 

Michael Schumacher's race engineer at Mercedes has changed, with his former assistant race engineer Peter Bonnington taking over the role from Mark Slade.

 

Slade was formerly Kimi Raikkonen's race engineer at McLaren, and was recruited from Renault, where he worked with Vitaly Petrov, for this season. He has taken up what a team spokesperson described as "a factory-based role within race engineering" because he has "decided to stop travelling".

 

Bonnington assumes the role with immediate effect having worked with Schumacher since the seven-time world champion came back to Formula 1 at the start of last year.

 

Jock Clear, who was Nico Rosberg's race engineer last year and for the first three races of of this season before new recruit Tony Ross joined from Williams, has stepped in as Schumacher's performance engineer for the final eight races of the season while a permanent replacement is found.

 

The team said that the move had been made with immediate effect in order for Bonnington and Schumacher to develop their relationship ahead of the 2012 season.

Q. 25th August 1991, Belgian Grand Prix, Spa-Francorchamps: your first Formula 1 race. How did that come about?

 

Michael SchumacherMichael Schumacher: At the time, it was a combination of circumstances. Jordan driver Bertrand Gachot was sent to prison, which left his cockpit vacant in the run-up to the Belgian GP. There was some discussion about me possibly racing, but it was by no means a done deal that I would actually get to drive. It was only on the Thursday evening before the weekend that I was told I would be taking part in the next day's practice session and making my Formula 1 debut. That was my entry ticket into F1, which even back then was organised for me by Mercedes-Benz. From today's perspective, I can say that I have now returned to the family who gave me the opportunity to launch my career.

 

Q. You had already driven for Mercedes-Benz in sports car racing and in DTM. How important were these racing series and the experience you gained in them for your career?

 

MS: It was extremely important for my further development, for me as a person and for finding out how to make cars go faster. Because that's what really counts: most racing drivers can drive fast, but the crucial factor is getting 100 percent out of the car and adapting it to your strengths. That's what competing in these series for Mercedes taught me, almost to Formula 1 level. So I came into Formula 1 extremely well prepared and very quickly discovered everything I needed to know about getting the setup right.

 

Q. What was it like to drive out of the pit lane for the first time in a Formula 1 car?

 

MS: It was a wonderful and fascinating moment. I can still remember it well. It was during a test at Silverstone on the Tuesday before the Belgian GP. On the first lap, I had to warm everything up. I came back into the pits to have the car checked and then went back out on my first proper lap. When I was allowed to use full throttle for the first time, I was completely startled. Despite my sports car experience, I had never been so fast in my life. Driving a racing car had never felt so unusual. So I did think about what I should do. I thought to myself: "Maybe you've bitten off more than you can chew." But on the second lap, I was more relaxed. By the third, I had forgotten my doubts and felt comfortable in the car. At the end of the day, I was perhaps a second faster than the guys who had sat in the car before me.

 

Q. Your debut race at Spa was a relatively brief appearance...

 

MS: Sadly, it was very short. In retrospect, I'm quite annoyed about it. I had to retire after 500 metres due to a clutch defect that could have been avoided, as my clutch was already broken in the warm-up session. So unfortunately, I had to watch the race from trackside. My team-mate Andrea de Cesaris also had to retire three laps from the end - lying in second place. At the time, I was a full second faster than him, so you can work out for yourself what I might have achieved in my first race...

 

Q. When did you realise that, for you, Formula 1 is like 'winning the lottery'?

 

MS: It was not about me 'winning the lottery'. Rather, I realised fairly quickly that we are all human beings ? even Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell. Up to that point, those drivers were so far away from me, I couldn't even imagine comparing myself to them. Over that weekend, I realised that it was perfectly possible, and that I could compete with the very best of them and hold my own.

 

Q. You've frequently referred to Spa-Francorchamps as your 'living room'. What makes the track so special for you?

 

MS: I've experienced many wonderful and interesting things at Spa. It's a place where virtually everything has happened to me that could happen ? my first race, my first win, my seventh world championship title... That's what makes Spa so special for me, and that's why I now call Spa my 'living room'. And then there are the huge challenges that the track gives the driver: Eau Rouge, Blanchimont ? the track brings very special emotions and feelings. It is and always has been the ultimate statement to drive a car at the absolute limit there. At the time, it was the highlight of the season to drive through Eau Rouge in a Formula 1 car. The cars were bunched up close together and the next moment they were almost taking off on the crest ? coping with that situation at the car's limit is like juggling on a tightrope. If you get it right, it's the best feeling that a racing driver can experience in a car.

 

Q. 30th August 1992 ? your first win, and once again in Spa, of course...

 

MS: That was the icing on the cake, because at the time we were not expecting to win with our car. Sure, we had a bit of luck and the weather played its part, and this combination meant that I was suddenly in the lead and crossed the finish line as the winner. For me, this was more than just a dream come true.

 

Q. In 1998, we experienced a very emotional Michael Schumacher after the collision with David Coulthard in the rain at Spa...

 

MS: I remember that race as if it were yesterday. I was driving on the straight in David's spray and had no way of judging the distance ? suddenly he lifted off in front of me. That's just like doing an emergency stop in a road car, but I couldn't see it at all because of the spray. All of a sudden, I was into the back David's car and I found myself driving a three-wheeler.

 

Q. Let's fast-forward to the year 2000 ? to the famous overtaking manoeuvre with Mika Hakkinen and Ricardo Zonta as piggy-in-the-middle. What was it like for you in the cockpit?

 

MS: Well, it was a pity really, because up to then I had been able to defend my position ? but once Zonta came into the mix, I had no chance of keeping Mika behind. It looked very spectacular and earned him the victory. Moments like that turn motor racing into something very special for the fans.

 

Q. Your seventh world championship title was decided early in Spa. How emotional was this experience for you?

 

MS: It was one of those Spa experiences that make this circuit so special for me. In my career, all roads seem to lead to Spa, over and over again. In 2004, I finished as runner-up at Spa, but that was enough to win my seventh title. So for me, it was like returning to my roots.

 

Q. Who were your greatest team-mates?

 

MS: Without a doubt, Felipe Massa and now Nico Rosberg. Nico may only be 26 years old, but he has already contested 100 Grands Prix ? so he has enough experience, is very fast and has the same approach as I do. This is very helpful for the team in moving forward together.

 

Q. How do you feel after eighteen months of your Formula 1 comeback?

 

MS: I am physically fit, mentally ready and I like the challenge. After such a long break, you have to work your way back in again. That took some time. But I notice that things are coming together and keep getting better. I'm very confident that we will achieve our goal ? perhaps a little later than planned, but that's the way life is sometimes. A world championship title with Mercedes is worth the wait.

Sa Repubblica: "E' un Gp del Belgio speciale per Michael Schumacher. Il pilota tedesco, sette volte campione del mondo, festeggia in questo week end i suoi 20 anni in Formula 1. Per l'occasione Schumi indossa un casco d'oro. Il casco, inizialmente rosso, ? stato ricoperto di 100 lamine d'oro di 5 cm di spessore."

 

Quindi il diametro del casco ? di circa 10 metri...

Quindi, se ogni lamina ? spessa 5 cm, vuol dire che ? stato steso uno strato spesso 5 metri d'oro sul casco, giusto?

Troppo bello 'sto casco... Anche pi? di quello che portava in Cina nel 2006.

Per? il casco che ha portato fino a San Marino 2000 ? quello a cui sono pi? legato, ed ? quello con cui ha fatto la maggior parte delle imprese pi? belle.
