Hoping for good things at Spa - my first sporting bet on a Schumacher podium. It feels rude not to at the 20th anniversary.

It would be nice if Schumacher bowed to the inevitable and announced is retirement at Spa, he has been bed blocking too long.


I hope he has some greatness and ends his career after this race. It is sad to see him take a seat, that a young an promising driver could use.

Some people really are stuck in deny mode. Hint: watch the news.

Mansell seems to be a fan of Schumacher. The latest F1 magazine indicates that he very much supports Schumacher. It is Hamilton he seems to think needs shaping up.

Domenicali said: “This will be a special weekend for him [Schumacher] as he celebrates 20 years in Formula 1, which means he is part of the history of the sport and also part of its present. As his seven world titles prove, he is the best driver the sport has seen and is very much in the hearts of everyone at Ferrari and all of us wish him well on this special occasion.”

Schumacher has given a good reply to Jordan & Lauda.

Critics 'paid to open mouths' - Schumacher

Aug.25 (GMM) Michael Schumacher has moved to ridicule those pundits who think he should quit.
Television pundits Niki Lauda, the triple world champion, and former team owner and boss Eddie Jordan, recently derided 42-year-old German Schumacher's performance so far in his return to formula one.

"Of course I would prefer not to have to deal with it and that some people would keep their mouths shut, the Mercedes driver told FAZ newspaper.

On the other hand, I know that these people are paid to have their mouths open. But if everyone who is driving on my level had to quit, there would not be many left."

Michael Schumacher to test DTM
25 August 2011

Multiple F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher is going to test the new 2012 Mercedes DTM car.

Mercedes Benz boss Norbert Haug said that a DTM drive could be on the cards, if “Michael no longer wants to drive in Formula 1.”

Haug said: “Michael is full of respect for the DTM drivers. At some point he will definitely test our new DTM coupe for 2012.

Fernando Alonso: “I have great respect for him, he’s one of the greatest or the greatest in our sport,” said Alonso. “The numbers are there and impossible to repeat for us. It’s been a great pleasure to drive with him all these years. I will always remember all the battles with him. It was a priviledge to drive against Michael Schumacher.

“He decided to stop and then come back and now the car is not competitive enough for him to win races, but I’m sure he is still enjoying. There are some criticisms about his results now but I don’t agree with them. Michael was watching the races at home three years ago, now he’s seventh or ninth, but I’m sure he is happy every morning because he is racing in F1. It’s what he wants to do; he’s a driver.

“Twenty years are a lot. If I think of myself it would be 2021 and I don’t think I can do that! I want to congratulate him for these 20 years and tell him it’s a pleasure to race against him.”

Well said Fernando and Stefano, he is the greatest driver ever, a true Ferrari hero and I will always love him, forever!

All those memories and all those titles he gave us 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, plus the amazing races over the years, fantastic, a true racing hero of our time even if he has done some stupid antics at times.

But this is my feelings for you Michael

:love:

But I must admit I support Ferrari, not him haha ;)

The 5Live commentators spotted Jock Clear on Michaels side of the garage (?), which prompted Anthony Davidson to say that there were rumours before this race about a possible change of engineer(s) for Michael.

Mark my words..

Michael will either have:-

1: DRS Failure
2: KERS Failure
3: Mysterious lack of pace

or a combination of all three, during qually and the race.

Jock Clear - Saboteur!
