A rare mistake by God of Formula One

A Rare mistake by God of Formula One: Schumacher kisses the barriers

On a wet friday practice, God of Formula One Michael Schumacher spun and hit the barriers in the second practice. Michael Schumacher who had scored a P4 in the first practice, hit the barriers in the second. He conceded that it was his mistake as he was talking with his engineers on the radio while changing some settings and placed the tyre on the white line and the car spun. The car hit the barriers nose first and then the rear hit the barriers.

Michael Schumacher is known to be extremely good in giving feedback about his car while driving. He is reputed to drive as fast as he does even while giving continuos feedback over radio to his engineers. They say he uses half of his brain for driving and the other half for analysing and giving feedback. It is some kind of super human ability. However, in Hockenheim he made a very rare mistake while doing what he effortlessly does all the time.

A rare blip from the God of Formula One.

The weather forecasts suggest that there will be two days of rain followed by a race in dry conditions on sunday. If it is a wet race, then the mercedes will be good.

Michael Schumacher's team mate Nico Rosberg has been hit with a five grid slot penalty as he had to change his gear box.

In the First practice (FP1), Jenson Button was P1 and in the Second Practice (FP2) Pastor Maldonado scored the P1. Hope Maldonado doesn't hit anyone in the race.

Dani Clos of HRT again drove in the FP1 in the place of Narain Karthikeyan and came 24th as predicted with a time of 1:21.740 as against a time of 1:21.138 of Pedro de La Rosa in the FP1. Narain drove in the second practice and came 22nd vis a vis 24 of this team mate Pedro de La Rosa.

On saturday practice, it is to be seen whether the God of Formula One Schumacher kisses the Pole position or not.
