Was Michael Schumacher able to anticipate when his car would spin?

    I remember watching a handful of his Ferrari races where if he lands to a halt in a gravel trap, the rear-wheels are still moving.

    He does something many other drivers and people are much too absent-minded to do - he holds both the hand clutches while he loses handling, thus, not breaking his car's clutch plate.

    I don't know. :confused:

    He certainly had a "butt feeling" when driving (in German they call it Popometer :p) and that's maybe why he dominated rain races so often. Excellence in multitasking might've had an effect as well.

    That's called "Not stalling the car".
