On a separate note to the compilers of the 20 greatest drivers, it is SIR Jackie Stewart as you have sir Stirling Moss,sorry just nitpicking.
At last the mid field rolling road block is packing it in !! No doubt Schumacher used to be good,but now he is just a liability on the track(rear enders?) I watch the middle of the pack and it is frustrating to see all these smaller teams (to whom placing is important) getting stuck behind him for lap after lap.Thank goodness we wont see him next year,his return has been a complete embarassment .
457.Yeah right...Like Bradley Wiggins, like Chris Hoy,like Steve Redgrave, like the Brownlee brothers,like Mo Farrah,like Seb Coe, like Jonny Wilkinson, like Lennox lewis etc...I could go ...All decent blokes who managed to win without cheatingAnd yes, schumi fan-boys what he did to Hill and tried to do to Villeneuve was cheating and not 'bending the rules'
I read some comments about sportsmanship and I think of the British nice guys in sport win nothing and bottle under pressure. You have to be tough to win and scu like senna realised that to win rules must be bent. Draw parallels with Manchester united under Sir Alex and you-ll draw the conclusion hungry guys win and those with mental doubts lose in the heat of battle.
Go on Michael, buy HRT, put them out of their misery.
Schumacher should never come back. It has vitiated his unquestionalbe status of the best driver of the modern era. Unlike Senna, he went to two different teams, and helped them develop dogs of cars into multiple world championship winners. Senna, perhaps his only recent rival, could only perform with the best car and pole position. Senna was also the most dangerous driver ever to disgrace F1.
Schumacher should never have come back...except as a sponsor.In his day a very good driver indeed...but he had the fastest car and was undisputed no1 for his team.imho not quite in the same class as Fangio, Stewart, Clark ,Moss or Senna but an excellent racer none the less
Understandably, one will question the fairness of driver status in teams and team orders. In an ideal world, it would be wrong. But, this is F1; not a mythological story intended for us and our children. The No.2, or a newcomer, can still turn things around like LH did to FA in 2007. Which led to FA and LH being celebrated rivals. The key point here is, you've got to "have what it takes"!
Michael Schumacher is Michael Schumacher. Nothing further need be said, except that Mercedes let him down - rubbish car and 90% of Mercedes unreliability. Had he not shouldered the brunt of Mercedes unreliability (perhaps intentional by the Fry/Clear group) he would be a lot higher on the points scoreboard. Superior brand BMW should look at employing Michael on the car development side of things.
Michael has class and dignity even when he had to retire from a race due to mechanical failure. The best driver in the world can't win with a second rate car. I doubt we'll see any wins from LH next season, the car just isn't fast enough. I was hoping Michael would sign for another year, he hasn't lost his edge, he just needs a fast car. Good luck Michael, relax and enjoy! You're the greatest
