But of course in China, they just call it food. Anyway, why has Michael been incapable of performing at this circuit? Or why do we (or the media) think he is? There have, after all, only been two races held here. Once Michael made a mistake in qualifying, but Rubens won, and twice Michael was in a bad car anyway, but was crashed into on his lap to the grid just for fun. Michael, in fact, holds the lap record for the track.
I always get confused between this circuit and Bahrain. They are quite similar in layout, but I guess the point of this post is, what makes a circuit good for one driver and not good for another? The car has some impact, of course, but the car can be set-up by the driver. A champion should be good everywhere, and I think that’s what we’ll see this weekend: Michael winning from pole.
