Mercedes GP Petronas’ Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg Finished the Monaco GP Practice

The drivers of Mercedes GP team, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher just finished their practice for the Monaco GP. And although Schumacher got into a small accident which caused his session to end early, he still placed seventh and completed 33 laps in P2.

Schumi compared some part of their performance in Barcelona GP with how they performed during the practice session, in his comment he said, ““Our gap to the front seems to be less here than in Barcelona. With my crash this morning, we had made a set-up change for the run and I locked up braking for turn one. After that, my decision to go down the escape road was too late, which is why I hit the barrier. The mechanics did a super job and the car this afternoon was just as quick as this morning. What Nico showed in terms of one-lap pace looks good, and our long runs were also quite reasonable.” Other teammates are also happy with their productive day at the track.

The team’s time and performance is always being checked at every practice session, however, aside from tracking time and checking performance, the team was also tasked to compare the soft and super soft Pirelli tyre compound and set-up development for this practice session in Monaco GP.
