I was bitterly disappointed on shumacher's
loss. I think he was under pressure from MclLaren, and pushed himself too much. However, crash seemed to be the result of mechanical malfunction than human error.
It's quite obvious that team Mclaren Mercedes doesn't have a solid apponent anymore, and will likely win the F1 championship for the second straight season.

Ferrari recruited Mika Salo of Finland as their No.3 driver to replace Shumacher temporarily. Team Ferrari is still two points ahead of West Mclaren Mercedes. Austrian grand-prix will be the litmus test for ferrari's depth, ..good luck.
