Hi Adrian,

I spoke with Adam and his father in great detail about the car and with regards to taking photos. I was told that Schumacher had not expressed any concerns to pictures being taken whatsoever, or with regards to them being displayed publicly.

I would not have even taken pictures let alone publish them here in the web if this had not been the case.

Any problems Adrian just PM me.

With regards to the rest of you other than Sam.

Do I feel important

not at all I just thought you loyal schumacher drivers would just like to see what is coming in the pipe line.

Clearly there is a difference to what you guys in the states had been told but as Adrian said himself that was 2 weeks ago and this is now.

Nick I think your case is slightly different and really do not see how you can compare this at all, after all you were making a TV show in which you got paid for doing so and your clearly asked not to publish any material before the show was aired, however I'm sure you let some people see them

Anyway thats enough for now.

If anyone from Schumacher UK

Robin S, Tim W, Chris A would like these removed just let me know

Nathan - It may be that as far as the factory is concerned the "top secret" period has finished if that is the case then I apologise for my criticsim of you.

As regards to me getting paid for making the show if only!!

No offence guys, but this has to be a first... people actually complaing about seeing a new car

I know Nathan wouldn't have posted the pics with out adam's permission first, so is there really any problem? Or is it just that us UK guys got to post it first.... only joking

Car looks good in the pics, but I'll reserve finally judgement until I see it first hand.

Cheers
Ed

They're not complaining about seeing a new car, its that pictures were not supposed to be public yet.

You really don`t get paid anything for doing that show? Thats a bit harsh.

I think if Shuie UK rrrrreally wanted the proto to still be kept secret i.e. "no pics" then they really would have. To just tell people no pics and then bring the car out in public view is pretty funny.

The car does look dialed though...

Seems as though there has been some miscommunication somewhere along the line anyway, no need to rip into people about it (not saying you are Weylin, but others are)... I believe the matter is being dealt with in the appropriate manner between the correct people.

It seems like there's a little bit of in fighting about the pics that were up. I'm not sure if this helps at all but the pics looked great!!! From a guy who has never owned a schumacher, I will definitely start watching out for this car...
