I was right in front of the podium ;)


I was climbing the fence on the slow-down lap as he stopped in front of me to cheer at the crowd. That was a special moment.

I loved the first part of Canada last year, until that Kubica incident - I think Schumacher had his best position of the season before the pit-stop. After that, it was a disaster with silly strategy.


Yeah, ironic that his best drive of his comeback turned into one of his worst after the Kubica incident.

No doubt they are using Michael as the track guide since he's won the race 7 times.

I expect DC to suck up to Michael. One thing behind his back, and another in front of his face.

Michael talkes to much.....

I’m not sure what surprises me more about Michael Schumacher’s return from retirement: his performance on the track – or off it.

On the track, it’s hard to imagine how things could go more wrong for a guy who has won seven Formula One drivers’ championships and holds every record that matters – from wins (91) and poles (68) to podiums (154) and fastest laps (76)


Not to take away from Nico Rosberg, but Schumacher’s inability to match his much-less-experienced German compatriot on most Grand Prix weekends goes beyond any worst-case scenario imaginable.

Let’s face it: There was little chance Schumi would live up to the hype surrounding his unretirement – the predictions of more wins, more poles, more podiums and, by the way, an immediate eighth driver’s title.

It wasn’t going to happen, especially when it became clear his Mercedes did not measure up to the task.

puxanando chose wrong quotes I guess:
"There have even been attempts to revise history, with British racing legend Sterling Moss suggesting Schumacher was “lucky to get all those titles” because “he was in the right car.”

Ridiculous and unfair. There were plenty of teammates at Ferrari and Benetton who were in the right car, too, and not one has a world driver’s title to his name.

Schumacher says he’s aware “there are many out there mouthing off about me,” but remains confident he will prove them wrong in the end. Maybe so. One more year remains on his Mercedes contract.

Give him this: He, more than anyone, knows what it takes to get back on track before the checkered flag comes down on his career for good."

puxanando, I know it hurts, to look how some new guy equals your favorite driver accomplishments and soon beating him in record books. And it will get worse ,man.

Brundle has interviewed Michael a couple of times recently and he joined the BBC team not so long agao where they joked about their past clashes.

JV: Quite fine thanks now you're not crashing into me anymore. Remember who took the title that day?

Schumi was not a rain master today. He was like a duck trying to learn how to swim. The back-end of the car was terribly out of shape driving out of the corners.

Sorry, but even with an unbalanced car he did good. Godd overtakes, good defending, he almost got Rosberg 2 times (SC restart, pit).

But with Merc it's pointless.

That's utter horse manure, to put it mildly. MS was doing fine today and was probably a little faster than Rosberg on raw pace, as he was stuck on his tail. Then came that horrible pit call...

yup... in the thread for the race i said keep michael out its probably gonna be a red flag... they brought him in and then i posted how it was a mistake and what do you know a red flag a few minutes later....

mercedes make the worst pit decisions for the last 2 years they need to sack whoever makes these decisions and hire someone with more experience.

my 15 years arm chair experience generally > whoever they have hired

look at sauber thats the sort of stuff merc should be doing

Not bad advise. Guys(MGP) when you don't know what to do, look at Sauber.
