Many people have been speculating why Michael Schumacher has had so many mechanical problems this year. In seven races he has had five retirements. Schumi has suffered gearbox problems (Australia), a wheel not fitted correctly at a pitstop (China), DRS problems, (Bahrain), a fuel pressure failure (Monaco) and a total DRS failure (Canada).
Now F1 journalist (and “shed connoisseur” Time Out magazine, June 2012), Frank Hopkinson has pointed out that Michael has abandoned his practice of Feng Schumi that proved so successful during his Ferrari days.
Michael used the ancient Chinese philosophy to good effect on his way to winning five World Championships with Ferrari, as this feature from Off on F1 in 2003 attested…
Literally translated means – the controlling one
The secret of Michael’s success is not hard to divine. He has harnessed and used the powerful forces of Feng Schumi in his life to achieve his goals. Let us reflect now and see how the Great Master – using the energy force of ch’i – he has achieved the ultimate goals in his life.
For centuries Feng Schumi has been used by Taoist Germans to enhance their environment and create abundance. In the case of the Great Master it is the abundance of Formula 1 records.
Ba Gua mirror – is essential to reflect the negative energy from a rival team back towards them. This has been most effective with McLaren this season
Ba Gua crystals – placed in the motorhome for harmonious team meetings and debriefs. Calming for team-mates and helps them accept their role in promotion of the Great Master..
Lead Crystal Sphere - Activates positive Ch’i in the pit garage, creating good for the occupants and increasing the balance of Yang. Which brings a healthier frame of mind and body to both engineers and team sponsors.
It is no surprise to the Great Master’s machinery has suffered no serious breakdown, protected as it is by the blessing of radiant light from the Lead Crystal Sphere placed above his race car in its garage.
Three Legged Toad God – this is attached to Ross Brawn. If attached properly it will bring prosperity. If attached to Jean Todt (Third Reiki Frog Master) it will bring unpleasantness.
In Austria in 2002 an inauspicious situation was created when a Red Dragon with a pearl in its claw was accidentally substituted for the Three Legged Toad God. The team did not make the same mistake again.
Fu Dogs – brings inner calm and confidence to otherwise hostile press persons. In each Ferrari interview a Fu Dog is carried by the Ferrari press officer (either Luca or Stefania) to ward off negative ch’I from the British Press.
The design of the Ferrari has incorporated many elements of Feng Schumi. Its overriding success is down to the flow of positive ch’i energy around it. Aldo Costa is the only modern F1 designer to have a ch’i tunnel which logs data on the flow of ch’i round the car.
Much of the secrecy around the underside of Ferrari’s car this season has been because the engineer/disciples did not want rival teams to see the beautiful painted graphics of streams and rivers painted beneath which enhance the speed of the car.
