    Wasn't there a particular problem for Heidfeld at the carousel as if he went round the fastest line the car would have got stuck as it was too low. I can imagine the Merc will have the same problem.

    I believe so, there are massive curb ridges on the inside of the carousel and an F1 car would destroy itself if it went over them.

    His main problem appears to have been having to slow down for a video truck to get decent footage at least once on every lap. The car's ride height was apparently set at its maximum but I suspect it would probably have grounded not just at the carousel but elsewhere on the track as well. It's not exactly billiard table smooth.

    Here's Heidfeld's lap. There's also one of Jenson driving a Civic type R round the circuit but I fell asleep before it ended.

    He wasn't slow, just looking after the tyres

    What's the point in having an F1 car round it if the driver doesn't push? Couldn't even be bothered to watch it all.

    Not a lot. Conditions looked cold and damp though, and the track is way too bumpy tnow for a decent run in a current F1 car. It was just a publicity demo' run anyway. I'll bet that didn't do his neck much good either.:)

    Michael's been very quiet since his retirement, I've heard nothing from/about him

    I heard Bernie has him locked away in his personnel living F1 musuem. He just needs Rubens to complete his 2004 Ferrari set.

    Still think he drove one of his best seasons in his last year of his return. To bad he had so many mechanical and two critical concentration errors Catalunya and Singapore. Otherwise he could have taken a win in his last year.

    Here's a ridiculous Schumacher sidenote...

    From 1992-2006 he raced at Catalunya on 15 occasions and appeared on the Podium 12 times.

    Good stat!

    What were he 3 he didn't? I'm guessing 2005 might be one and 1996 might be the other due to him driving shopping trolleys that year.

    Maybe 93 for the other one?

    Missed out in 1997 (P4), 2003 (P5), and 2005 (Ret)

    Also amazing that he retired just once in that span.

    He was just as successful in Canada. 12 Podiums in 15 GP from 1992-2006.

    Missed the podium in 95 (P5), 96 (Ret), and 99 (Ret)
