Brundle's attitude towards Schumacher is somewhat confusing. It's between a mixture of awe of his achievments and snide remarks tinged with a hint of jealousy and wit.
Its the tone and the tenor of the comments.
I think Brundle's "tactic" at commentating MS eversince he returned to F1 has been 1)
to hail MS, and in fact raise expectations all the time... and 2)
when Michael underperforms Brundle goes into "puzzled-mode".... how can this be? how can the great MS this and that.... 7times WDC etc etc
He does it all the time in all the commentating about MS. Fixed pattern there.
It's not very clean towards MS... (but MS offcourse couldnt be bothered by someone like Brundle who never drove to pole position, or ever won a race)
So to use your words: it must be stemming from some kind of envy and jealousy (I guess)
Eddie Jordan on the other hand is definitely sincere about MS.
