We meet again! Messrs Webber, Schumacher ... and Hamilton (below) pretty much screw up the start of each other’s final Q3 lap. Hamilton was the loser this time ... the Aussie and the German would clash again in the race. MICHAEL Schumacher has closed to within three points of team-mate Nico Rosberg in the drivers’ championship after finishing an impressive sixth. The Suzuka specialist was lucky to finish at all however after coming to blows with Red Bull’s Mark Webber during the race. Webber pitted on lap 20, emerging behind Schumacher in the fight for sixth and the following lap came up behind the German at the Dunlop curve before tagging his front wing against the Mercedes’ left- rear tyre. The contact damaged the right side of his front wing, with the debris lying on the track subsequently contributing to the deployment of the Safety Car three laps later. Despite the damage caused to Webber’s front wing, he was able to battle on and secured fourth place at the finish, losing more ground to Alonso and Button in the fight for second in the championship. “I had some contact with Michael, which did some damage to my front wing at a crucial part of the race as I was trying to come back through the pack,” said Webber. “ We made contact, but he got away with it.” Schumacher and Webber survive mid-race contact 30
