Can you also take your Rosberg Vs MS stuff to the correct thread please, this isn't it although you would like it to be because it's the only thing you can grasp on to after a fine drive at Spa by anyones standards by MS.


By anyone´s standards?

Boy, have those standards on Schumacher´s racing sunk in recent times...

Not that I did not predict it, though. It was clear that at least in Spa Michael would show something, Spa being his "home track".

Yet if compared to Hamilton Michael is nowadays clearly second rank.

His car is also third or fourth rank compared to McLaren. :rotfl: And he didn't kiss the barrier with his bad car. MGP car didn't have nor the driveability, nor the traction of the McLaren , it is easy to be "good" with good car.

Which is what is so fascinating to me: Michael, the former superstar in dialing in a car, is suddenly only able to get the car up to third or fourth rank standard. Well, I´ll give you that, if the car was truly developed for Button, it will not be that easy, although previously Michael was famed for being able to "drive around" everything.

So 2011 will be the true proof of the pudding then. Godspeed, Michael.

I found this Report on Belgium 2010 in Russian forum. It was made by Russian girl who is big Schumi fan. I think you can like her travel notes.

Sorry translation is not very good, in Russian travel notes are great. Michael Schumacher was staying at La Source hotel close to the famous corner.


Thanks for the sharing.
I think the family photo she mentioned in the article is the interview by Bild, the German Newspaper.
And I think Michael is nice to fans as always, really glad to see that.

If MS had crashed like Vettel or came within a foot like hamilton did in the kitty litter of throwing the race win away or Kubica overshooting his pit stop.

The critics would have a field day...

Nice to see your forum guys support Michael everywhere. It reminds me of the banners we used to made for Michael.

Yeah, it´s a bit ridiculous and at the same time desperate.
I thought he would win one race, and when Rosberg got third place in China Michael should have scored a victory, based on the driver he is (or rather, was).

Nowadays the future looks rather grim for him.

Well, have you not expected at least one win from Michael this season? And in China even Rosberg was within a shout of a victory - a Michael of old would have duly won the race.
So I don´t think it´s b*llsh*t but a legitimate opinion. Granted, China was the closest MGP came within a victory, but I am sure that in earlier days Michael would have made use of that chance.

So neither sad nor b*llsh*t, just an opinion, and not an unjustified one at that. Indeed to say "your best wins are in the future" seems ironical, desperate or blind to me.

So instead of bashing Cheap Wine Alesi and myself, what's your opinion, baddog?

Do you think Michael will still win a GP? When would he/Mercedes have been able to win this year? For me it was China, if Michael hadn't driven so bad - you can see that by Rosbergs race.
I also gave Michael his due for his good races in Monaco, Spain and Spa - these were realistically his best races this season.

What do you think were his best races this year and do you think Michael will win next year? If so, how many races?

I'd like you "(perceived) basher-bashers" show some realism and objectivity as well.



you're talking about your own messages I guess :)


I am getting desperate because Michael is driving so well this year? Or how do you mean that?
Or I am ridiculous? Fine, suit yourself.

Good points, thanks for your response.

While I do not have the time to calculate Williams' points from last season that late at night (12.40 AM here in New York) it amazes me that Williams were so much better last year, or rather, they are so much worse this year.

Another reason, why the change of points systems is quite confusing and makes historical comparability that much harder. Isn't there a website that just shows all the points standings under all the points systems? I think I have come across one some time ago. Thanks if you can provide the link.

Of course, that argument that you make can be also extended to Mercedes GP. With Merc money on board, and with the always capable Michael, it is not easy to understand why Mercedes GP is underperforming to that degree as compared to Brawn GP.

So the success last year was all down to the double diffuser, and the lack of success this year is all down to reduced workforce and budget?

Ah, there is one factor - Rosberg was driving for Williams last year and scored that much more points than Rubens this year.
And in 2010, the same Rosberg is distancing Michael in most races - so maybe Nico is not such a bad driver after all and Michael has lost less performance than it appears?


Rosberg has been a top driver in-waiting, and his performances for Williams when they were competitive were very eye-catching... the time was right for him to complete his 'apprenticeship' and step up... he's done that in a big way in my eyes this year, although Schumi has spent most of this time catching up. Nico's done really well for a driver who has done the last 3 years, and Michael has done well for a driver who hasn't had that same time racing...

If both were up to Nico's speed, Mercedes year would look a lot better than it has done... and that's no diss to Michael, who has lost points to both mechanical failure (Sepang), obscure decisions (the move in Monaco), and also bad Brawn Schumacher-specific strategies (tyres in Canada, Silverstone, China)... it's almost like Ross Brawn has tried things out on Michael, and let Nico rack up the points in case it doesn't work!?!

What this shows is a total lack of respect and manners for other posters in the forum.
Forget Schumacher for one moment, any fans who come on atlas f1 forumers and put up posters of their drivers and show support, it's one thing to discuss specific races or incidents and have a view on it, it's another thing to use basic fan support through posters and write negative comments. It's clear you dislike Schumacher, just remember everyone who posts on forums are human beings/life is short, they enjoy f1 and wanna discuss it with other fans, it's their interest.


There's alot of people who dislike Schumacher and have much more class about the way they go about it ithreads, just by posting often in this thread isn't going to re-educate a f1 fan of your views, your here for something else, spoiling the party as often as possible, like a sick joke, pathetic.

Think about people in general and manners for a moment, I've forumed here for almost 10 years now, it's okay to dislike drivers, even if for some of us it looks sad to have a determined consistent mission to bring down fans of a driver, rather then celebrate or enjoy what you guys like about f1 or who, and then their are lines you shouldn't step over, commenting on fans banners on a driver you don't like isn't going to achieve anything but extreme pathetic sillyness, don't go there, I've reported your posts. They are the worst posts I've read on here for a while.



You two are beyond sad really.

Kudos to the actual fans of the sport who go and cheer for their heros, instead of the keyboard heros here who just pound out the bullshit.



:up:
It's almost like a daily predictable soap opera, life at atlas f1 forums. There's always been some consistent forumer who has a side hobbie of hate with Schumacher M, but usually the balance was ironed out by forumers who spent time celebrating their heros. But what's happening with this thread is consistent soap opera which I hope isn't off putting alot of new forumers who wanna spent time actually enjoying who they support. It's pathetic.

Well maybe it does seem that way to you, but I think I prefer to see race goers expressing their like for someone rather than constantly and relentlessly finding ways to say how much they dislike someone. And it's not like that sort of banner isn't also usually there. I think it's rather sad that their positivity is scorned.

I think I might go and have a laugh at some Virgin F1 fans to make myself feel big and clever...

face it a - n

I note in your profile that your favourites would seem to include anybody who was not schumacher or a ferrari during the schumcaher era despite some classic races and finishes

you love ferrari but not when they were winning under todt?? a real tifosi then. rather watch a shambles but keep your nobility eh. coupla miss calls warranted all that spite despite watching a team regain and surpass past glories. as if the great man wasnt above making some dubious ethical calls either. lets forget that montazemalo also ran the team when the likes of lauda strutted around and threw out their toys.

face it mate you just cant stand schumacher and are incapable of finding anything positive so why dont you find somewhere else to espouse your views.

the assumption by joining a forum is that you are open to anothers point of view

No, you are desperate because no matter what MS does in the future, he still has more titles and race wins than your idol and that will always remain that way, no matter what. It's pretty clear that is the root of your hatred against Schumacher.

I guess people who call race-goers who make supportive banners of their favoruite drivers "pathetic" and "desperate", never enjoyed the great atmosphere of a race weekend (they might have experienced it but I guess the never fully got it, if it's pathetic for them). When I go to races I love to see all those different people supporting different drivers and teams, whether it's the best or the worst driver or team. That is what makes a great atmosphere and a big part of the fun. I feel sorry for you that you don't know what it is.

Yeah, that was a great interview, one of only a few. David asked a lot of decent questions.

Schumacher certainly still has all the self belief he needs. That is a very good sign.

If your hero is a racing driver who are known for their egoism and arrogance and out of whom many are spoilt brats, I consider you a very sad person (and I am not talking about you baddog, but more in general terms). Making huge posters to show how much you support someone and love him, when you know nothing about that person, well, I consider that very sad. Just my view.

Rosberg has been a top driver in-waiting, and his performances for Williams when they were competitive were very eye-catching..

Rosberg has been lucky that his teammate is the weakest driver in the top 5 teams and he has been made look good that way. Put Hamilton in the same car and Rosberg would look average. I think Mercedes is not a very good car this year, but nor do they have great drivers. In all, the whole team is average this year (even strategy wise)

They are the worst posts I've read on here for a while.

Thanks valen, from you I consider that a compliment.

'Hero' 'love' :stoned:

No, CWA, those are your words. Something you impute into the relationship because you are outside of it and unable to recognise what is really going on. These people enjoy Formula 1 and they get into the atmosphere of race day, go with friends, bond and enjoy themselves taking the highs and lows of a drivers performance over a career and turning it into an exciting weekend with like-minded people. It is not about a love of the driver it is about being identified as fans and having a stake in the game in order to fully appreciate it.

If you cannot see that, I pity you.

Maybe you are on the wrong place then?

I have never posted on a michael schumacher fan forum.

As far as I know, autosport.com is not his fan forum nor has it ever been, correct?

'Hero' 'love' :stoned:

No, CWA, those are your words.

Baddog mentioned cheering for ones heroes.

Something you impute into the relationship because you are outside of it and unable to recognise what is really going on. These people enjoy Formula 1 and they get into the atmosphere of race day, go with friends, bond and enjoy themselves taking the highs and lows of a drivers performance over a career and turning it into an exciting weekend with like-minded people. It is not about a love of the driver it is about being identified as fans and having a stake in the game in order to fully appreciate it.

I too have attended various sporting events in my life with friends, but nothing has ever driven me to make stupid posters for the athletes/teams I support, stand in line for ages to see them or to get their autographs or scream like crazy when said athletes show up. Quite frankly, I pity anyone who behaves like that.

Yes in general and sporting terms. You objectified it.

Then you must be spreading your pity quite thinly.

I just know what is the difference when you favourite driver is there in the race and when he is not, like in the last 3 years. It is very different experience on the track or on TV.

Funny because I never pity people who are enjoying themselves and have found something that they love and makes them happy. I am pleased for them. Even if it's not something I would enjoy or would make me happy, kudos to them for having found their thing and not being afraid to do it regardless of the negativity it may attract :up:

Pity?? Pity???

I tell you what I pity.

I pity the pathetic who are unable to enjoy the happiness and joy of others, and take every opportunity to espouse negativity.

One life to live, squandered, in attempt to make everyone miserable.


Being a new comer here and having followed several threads for sometime, I can honestly say that this forum is one of the most hateful, negative places I have chanced upon. No driver is immune to the hate, and I mean abject hate, just look at any thread concerning any driver. Some drivers attract more for obvious reasons, success is directly proportional to their dislike and vicissitude to which this is expressed.

Just my opinion, one that is no doubt ignorant, stupid, and worthless to someone who participates here.


Have a nice day!! :wave:

Well said.

There is something smile-inducing about seeing a bunch of people, together, sharing real enjoyment of something even if you dont share their enjoyment.

True cynicism is not being able to appreciate that, and that is the thing that is sad.

I guess we are a LONG way off topic here now? Maybe we could head back towards it?

Schumacher's final race at Spa was an up and down affair. Rosberg must have felt quite fufilled putting that last move on Schumacher, especially putting him on the tarmac after Schumacher took off his front wing plate earlier in the race. I guess that there no love lost between them now. :)

At least Michael was happy after the race. As you know he like odd numbers and 7 is special for him. :) They show good fight between team mates.

I am fairly confident in the claim he will stay in the F1 books with 7 titles, and 7 titles it is. Done deal, he always had 7 stars on his helmet, right? Right!

Even with 2 more seasons in the wings, he will never achieve a next title. Impossible. And people who know his carreer, know I'm right. :smoking:

CWA you really are a pitiful person. People make the effort to support their favorite drivers which is totally acceptable, you come and shoot it down like a friggen nazi plane.

Schumy believes Monza doesn't suit his car and he will get a nice reception... :well:

"On a personal level, I am very much looking forward to returning to Monza where I have been supported so warmly over so many years."

He still have a lot of fans there. And about car there will be damage limitation in Monza. They need not to lose many points against Reno and FI(Sutil). After Monza will be easy for MGP car.
