Michael SchumacherAs reported on SportingLife.com

Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren’s F1 CEO, admits F1 will face a period of adjustment once the German has departed, he does whole heartedly believe F1 will survive in its post-Schumi era. “Inevitably, (Schumi) has a following, particularly in Germany – but on the other hand, as one door closes another opens,” he told Autosport.

“I think that with Nico (Rosberg), Lewis (Hamilton), Gary (Paffett), Heikki (Kovalainen) and (Nelson) Piquet (Jr), we’ve got an interesting rush of new blood, and I am sure those guys will be exciting to see as they develop.

Interestingly he forgot to mention Robert Kubica, the rookie who reached the podium in his third race. But then, that is not we are talking about.

We are talking about Michael Schumacher and Formula 1 next season. No doubts a lot has already been written about it and we don’t want to be repetitive. So we’ll say it once and for all.

The sports will go ahead, undoubtedly, even without Michael Schumacher, but it is going to take at least 2-3 races next season for the reality to sink-in. That’s our take on the subject, feel free to write yours.

Robert KubicaAs reported on Auto123.com

While we have the likes of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen to carry us through after Schumacher leaves, there is another name on everyone’s lips after Polish racer Robert Kubica finished the Italian Grand Prix third in his only third race.

Despite Kubica’s lack of experience, he did everything right in Italy while his more experienced rivals made mistakes including his teammate Nick Heidfeld, who out-accelerated Michael Schumacher at the start to take second place, but then, as they went into the first corner, he switched to the inside line where there was a lot less grip.

When compared to other rookie that start this year, Nico Rosberg, Robert Kubica definately looks the future of Formula 1.

For Kubica’s hold the advantage of a complete package [car, team & personal performance], compared to Nico Rosberg [taking nothing away from his personal performance] who, we think, got hampered by lack of progress at Williams. Also the hype created during Rosberg’s initial races did a little harm to him, compared to a very quiet launch of Kubica and he proved his credentials directly on the circuit.

Nico RosbergAs reported on HomefoSport

Before a single wheel even turned, Nico Rosberg’s first French grand prix at Magny Cours has got off to a unpleasant start. Whispers at the circuit suggest that Williams’ rookie driver will undergo an unscheduled engine change, resulting in a ten-grid penalty.

So much for a “Good Race Weekend” for Rosberg & Williams.

What an amazing qualifers for Nico Rosberg, his second F1 race and he’ll be starting from 3rd grid position behind Fisichella & Button.

Ferrari had engine problems in it’s hands since they changed the engine for Schumacher & Massa both. As a result, Schumacher would be starting from 14th grid position whereas Massa didn’t ran in second round, so he’ll be starting from the back-of-the-grid alongside Coulthard, who also have to change the engine since Red Bull is also using same Ferrari Engine and Ralf Schumacher, whose engine blew after he got provisional pole position at the end of 2nd round.

With Montoya, Räikkönen & Alonso taking 6th, 7th & 8th position respectively, it is said that they were running with heavy fuel load compared to other cars.

The most exciting moment came at the end of first round, when Michael Schumacher reached 16th position and was nearly knocked out at the end of first round.

The exact grid positions of the drivers will be available only tomorrow morning and I am quiet sure it is going to be very complicated given so many engine failures. All in all tomorrow is going to be another exciting F1 race.
