    Formula 1 2012: Another rough Formula 1 race day for Mercedes, Nico finishes in 11th and Schumacher last at Indian Grand Prix

    The 2012 season continues to be rough for Mercedes-Petronas who is projecting the feeling that they have given up. Nico Rosberg finished in 11th place which means 1 spot out of the points picking up nothing. Michael Schumacher finished in 22nd place which was the last car to finish the race. The only cars that had a worse result than Schumacher were the two that were not able to finish the race and had to retire.

    Sebastian Vettel took the victory and expands his lead on Fernando Alonso who is in second place for the drivers championship.

    Actually MS parked the car in the pitbox 5 laps before the finish.
    Race itself was not really spectacular this time.
    Alonso did good, finishing second.
    Webber managed to stay 3rd, staying ahead of Hamilton, with a bad working KERS system.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    His race was over in the first corner when he cut his right rear tire on the front wing of Verne.
    He managed to climb to 16th nefore tactically parking his car in the pitbox.

    Well it's unfortunate but it's a pretty sad pattern at this point.
