Massa is a brilliant driver, and has been working very hard for them... In Monaco Ferrari are always disadvantaged... This year they had wider tyres which makes it impossible to have a good race...

Schumi can only do so much for so long, I think Massa is doing a brilliant job and is learning from Schumi, and seeing he has won 2 races and been on pole most I think its good enough...

The problem for Ferrari is now that they haven't got a driver who knows how to develop a car and ask the mechanics how to improve it, on which Michael was the best. Let's see if the Ferraris keep falling down or Massa and Raikkonen start working hard and do the same.

Michael as a test driver would be perfect for them.

I think all teams are using the same sets of Bridgestones anyway.

Just different choices of tyre each weekend (Monaco - Soft Super and Soft etc)

Yep all the tyres are the same. The reason Ferrari Struggled was that they have a longer wheelbased car, which means they are "better" in long flowing corners and straights, but not good in tight and twisty corners, aka Monaco

Well, MS will not be back.. At least not for this year.. A return of MS mid-season would cause such a disturbance that it would probably have more negative consequences. Perhaps he could do some test driving on a limited basis this season. I'm always curious as to how much a difference a driver makes in a team, but I think Massa has done a good job with Ferrari in MS's wake. Kimi however... I just don't know about him.. Talented yes, but determined? ehh...

im thinkin tat kimi was not givin his 100% becoz he was not comfortable in the new car yet , therefore he dun wanna risk the race by goin to his limit

hes juz takin on his on pace and bein consistent rather than massa, who is goin full speed and risk makin mistakes ( like in brahrain )

tis is wat i think ...

I don't think the cookings the problem I think it's more the car :P (Sorry couldn't resist)

TBH I think there having their having the trouble that McLaren where behind to start and have now introduced better updates than Ferrari and it's paying off. I also think the Schumi+Brawn team up was pretty emazing as far as those team ups can go, especially with Schumi's motivational skills which Kimi definatly doesn't have at the moment, proved by him leaving races earlier and quali at Monaco. He just hasn't got the team spirit there.

lol, thats what was said about the feild during 2001, 02, 03 and 04!

i think raikkonen has to pull his head in, it wouldnt hurt to take advice!

massa is still learning and is doing a decent enough job, it was just ulucky that him and fisi were disqualified from the race in canada.

i dont think michael should be doing anything other than what he is doing now... a 'coach' to other ferrari drivers!

sounds good!
Thankyou Schumi you will always have a place in our hearts!
Michael Schumacher- 7 volte Campione del mondo!
SIMPLY THE BEST
