STREIFF: SCHUMACHER IN WHEELCHAIR, CAN’T SPEAK, HAS MEMORY PROBLEMS

In the wake of good news regarding Jules Bianchi, it has emerged that Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher recuperating at home in Switzerland, is paralysed and in a wheelchair, according to former racing driver Philippe Streiff.

Frenchman Streiff, who is a good friend of Schumacher’s, revealed to The Telegraph: “He is getting better but everything is relative. It’s very difficult. He can’t speak. Like me, he is in a wheelchair paralysed.”

“He has memory problems and speech problems,” added 59 year old Streiff, who visited Schumacher when the German was in intensive care in Grenoble Hospital.”

The Telegraph reports that, “Schumacher’s spokeswoman Sabine Kehm said Streiff’s comments were his opinions and she therefore did not want to comment.”

She added: “He [Streiff] did not have contact with us.”

Information on Schumacher’s condition and recovery has been scarce since the holiday skiing accident on 29 December 2013 in the French Alps, although his website has been relaunched acommemorating his life and huge achievements in Formula 1.

Schumacher was transferred to Lausanne Hospital, Switzerland, in June and is now being cared for at his home on the shores of Lake Geneva by a team of specialists.

In 1989 Streiff suffered crash during F1 preseason testing which left him a quadriplegic and thus using a wheelchair.

Toto just seems to like to run his mouth. We saw the same thing during the summer when he kept going on and on about letting the drivers race, blah, blah, blah. I like the idea of a team principle or other exec that speaks his mind (I am looking at YOU, Nikki), but sometimes I think Wolf could really use an editor. Why on earth wouldn't he say that it would be a nightmare scenario if EITHER of their cars had a mechanical DNF?

Wow. I bet no one saw this coming. :-)

http://en.espnf1.com/ferrari/motorsp...ry/184583.html

Or this.

http://en.espnf1.com/ferrari/motorsp...ry/184627.html

So, we still await the time when The Alonso wants us to know where he is going, and then we will know.

Nothing surprising in either of those stories.
I posted last week there would be an announcement before Abu Dhabi about Vettel going to Ferrari and Alonso going to McLaren. Maybe it will be Friday.

McLaren said no driver announcements until 12/1 at the earliest. Of course, they can always change their mind.

Ferrari also said there will be no announcement until the season is over. We don't really need an official announcement though. We'll see.

What I'm anxious to find out is who is Alonso going to replace at McLaren. Hope it's not Button. Be foolish of them to drop him in such a heavy development phase imo.

On one hand I would say I did not picture McLaren paying two drivers $25 mil each then again Honda may want some brand names for their return.

Qualifying has just finished and things are looking up for your chances of receiving a visit from a certain blonde movie actress BGL.

Either the far side of the curb is now officially "off the track" or it's ok to put all 4 wheels off the track this race. Wonder if all the drivers knew this because only a few were doing it.
Rookie Kyvat in a Toro Rosso out qualifies both Ferraris. That's really sad sh*t.

I better send the wife out tomorrow morning. :-)

BTW, Diffey mentioned during Quali that the pre-race would be one hour starting at 7am Eastern. My D* guide had it as a separate 30 minute F1 Extra before the broadcast listing, which I was not previously setup to record.

Setup "F1 Extra" as a series. Also "Countdown to F1".

As Fake Charlie Whiting likes to say, Oh FFS!

Front wing flaps flexing under load is the crime.

Curious if the team has a set of wings available that comply with the regulations.

F1 front wings are appear to be unbelievably complex. Changing a component of a wing would not appear to be all that straight forward, but I guess teams at the front of the grid have the resources to sort these things out pretty quickly.

Probably the same wing only less "flexible". The beauty of a flexible wing is that it will lay down a little on the high speed straights and give up a little drag. Kind of a passive DRS.

I'm sure you know this, I'm just babbling.

Red Bull was warned last year about having too much flex in their front wing. I don't think anything came of it though.
