Do you guys think Michael will be superstitious and keep the new golden, 20th anniversary helmet or just go back to the old one?

I personally like the new one's look better, the old one has too much red/Ferrari in it.



I thought the same!

He should keep the golden one! It suits him much better! :smoking:

Split the discussion about F1 leaders into it's own thread as that concerns Alonso and Schumacher. Moved posts about the 'save fuel' team orders to the Rosberg v Schumacher thread because it involves predominantly Nico.

This thread is for discussion of Michael Schumacher.

remember, the red helmet is the luckiest one for MS
back in 2000 he changed to RED helmet and bam, rest is history
thats why he insisted on having the red helmet in Merc 2010
I dont think the red one will be lost that easily

Briatore to blame...not Schumacher!

"My problem wasn't Michael," he told the Hindustan Times newspaper. "It was Flavio (Briatore)."

alanbaldwinf1: Chants of 'Ole, Ole, Ole Schumi' outside the Mercedes garage, where a lot of the fans are wearing red shirts. Almost like old times.



F1Kate: Good lord. They're now singing very out of tune songs about Schumacher. Well, songs might be being generous...

Forza Schumacher indeed. Good to see the old contingent out in force, looks like he's more popular 'over there' than Ferrari's own drivers.

Some will always be legends no matter what, I guess.

Im sure he is, as yet, more PERSONALLY popular than Fernando. Win a WDC or two for Ferrari to get there please..

However when it comes to the race its perfectly clear who they will be behind to win.. Always always red cars ;)

It's not just the pictures. Look at the tweets.
Schumacher is still by far the most popular driver in the world, and not just in Italy (China, Japan, Turkey, etc...) whether you like it or not.

Didn't debate nor denied that Schumacher is the most popular driver (currently). That's true, tho you could have chosen far better examples with far more racing history than China or Turkey :p

But still what I said is standing, wheter you understood my comment or not. :)

He is.. I live in Milan(near monza) and i can guarantee you that.
There was a Gp program in TV months ago and some pundits were asking why ALO is not so popular in Italy and among Ferrari "core" fans like MSC was(Lauda was also interviewed).. many of them(Ferrari's fans) still remember 2006 and all the poison younger ALO, Briatore and Symonds trew at them as a team and calling michael "poor old".
They also think the only reason ALO is there is not because he loves the team but only because it was his only chance to win WDCs. They have no doubt he will have been in McLaren for many many years if things were different at the end of 2007 year. Of course i'm just talking about a "relatively" big part of Italian Ferrari's fans.

Only people in Spain can think otherwise since ALO is Spanish.

World is not in black and white, and even if it is true many core fans feel like that, others (a big part) really love Alonso. And if you really live close to Monza you won't be able to deny that. Also many love both Schumacher and Alonso, it is not that it's not compatible even if this may hurt some people here.

And I'm not Spanish, just warning you before your invalid my opinion because of my nationality :)

Good to hear the truth from someone that actually lives in Italy rather than from the usual glory hunters from across the world; blue-blooded tifosi (and neutrals such as yourself) are massively underrepresented on this board due perhaps to language barriers. Thanks for sharing, it's heartening to know there are still a lot of them that can see through the hype. :)

I agree that language barrier is an issue...
But i will not call myself 100% neutral(well, i try my best, but you will hardly see a post of mine where i show my hatred toward a particular driver) because the drivers who mean F1 to me are Hamilton and Schumacher.

Anyway i think if ALO wins may be 2 WDC think could change, but he will never match(may be nobody) the popularity MSC enjoyed when he was at his peak. MS was a trademark and Ferrari cars were even more meaningful when you knew MSC helped to develop it.

Its great to see the Italian fans still remember and respect Michael, but then I wouldn't expect anything less. I still remember how they kept their affection for Mansel (Il Leoni) after he left Ferrari - The Tifosi have a lot of heart, and love their racers if they feel the racer has loved Ferrari.

Don't want to comment too much on Alonso... he drives in a very professional way for Ferrari and is doing a good job for them imo. His comments in 2006 were... unfortunate... but we all make mistakes. Anyway....

Just watching FP2 - its not looking too bad for Michael his low fuel soft tyres run was not far off the Red Bull and McLaren, think the Mercedes could really mix it up with the top 4 this weekend!! Oh but of course they have flattered to deceive in practice before... P8 in quali?

I'm actually quite hopeful. We've been hearing all season how the Mercedes car is fast, but a bit rubbish at corners. I think Schumi's 3rd in P2 is testament to how slippery the car is, they often show great pace through the speed traps. I think this could be the race the W02 was designed for!! I'm certainly a hell of a lot more confident about the car performing here than, say, Singapore!!

In any case I think the Mercedes should be well clear of its usual scrap with the Findias and Lotaults.

Why do you care?

I've never cared much for Barrichello, but I don't seek out bad news stories about him or write bad messages about him on the internet.

When he does well I give the man his dues, if he does badly and it is part of constructive debate I say so. Otherwise I pretty much ignore his existance.

Why do you care what Schumi is up to at all if you do not like him?
