I read your post several times over, and I am not sure that I understand what you are alleging. Notwithstanding this seatback, let me attempt to answer this way - I am not making any excuses for Schumacher, because I would not know which specific action should be disputed and defended. I do however giving him all the time - quite silently - for he needs to make best of where he is and what resources he has, and I believe he will make best of it. I have no idea how he feels or what he is saying to his wife in privacy of his home, but I see his struggle with the equipment which has nothing to do with age; at least I do not think so.
The car is far from perfect, but Rosberg is getting more out of it. If MS cannot beat then the problem is with MS not the car. My personal opinion is that MS is way past his best, but many are handing out excuses for him that they would never have accepted as valid for other drivers he was paired with and beating..
