In the Senna movie, Ayrton gives Stewart a dressing down, the man needs to get back to promoting failed banks, not talking about F1

That was a classic, AS taking exception to the loaded questions that SIR Jackie was asking him....

:clap:

Well, the man who "goes round dressed up as a 1930s music hall man" can, of course, talk about F1 as much as he likes. I just wish, given his racing achievements and experience he spoke with a bit more balance. You KNOW if he's talking about Schumi it's to slag him off. Glad to see Sébastien Buemi and Sebastian Vettel talking in rather more reasonable terms about Monza at the Singapore press conference.

Ah yes Stewart....

Every couple of years he says the same things about MS.


yadda yadda yadda, he spins out too much....... yadda yadda yadda..... He is unsporting...... yadda yadda yadda.....



blablablabla Lewis blablablablablabla hamilton could have won blablablabladiblablablabbalalabnblabalabalbna hamilton the best blablblablablabldibla

The sad part is Stewart gets so predictable. You just knew this was gonna come instead of a good praise on Michael. ANd the nonsense psychological assesment on Schumacher on his retirement in 2006: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :rotfl:

Heres to a championship number 8, with 9 more wins and several more poles next season :up:

You could say that Lewis Hamilton lost all chances of winning the race by that, and I think that's wrong.


how come everyone who thinks schumacher was out of order at monza comes out with that BS? they are suposed to be the best drivers in the world , just because you hqave the fastest car doesnt mean you deserve to finish where the car is capable..

youve got to put the car where it belongs... not the car putting the driver where the car should be.

:up:
The only true sucessor of Senna is Schumy
rest of the current drivers are just trying to get more fans on their side, when saying cr@ps like "Senna is my idol blah blah yadyadada"

Btw: Schumy seems to be in great from at Singapore today
hoping for great result like last two :clap:

Following the rather nasty taste in the mouth left by Sir Stewarts rather unnecesary bashing, here is a nice interview with Murray Walker from 1996.

http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

Says everything you need to know about who Michael Schumacher really is - and much respect to Walker!

Looking forward to a good Singapore, not Michaels strongest circuit type but not bad in FP2 today so hoping for a good top 10 finish!

I don't see either driver really answer the question. Senna gets a bit huffy then waffles without answering the question, Schumacher attempts an answer then immediatelty contradicts himself.

Either way, good to hear Stewart and Brundle having the balls to confront these guys with issues that most journos avoid.

You know, it's possible to like a driver and not defend every single thing they've ever done. You can like him and simply admit he cocked things up occasionally and people have a right to point that out.

I'm sorry, I don't understand the point you are trying to make?

What does incidents that happened over 20 years ago with Senna have to do with the fact I think Jackie was ott with his comments about Schumi's defending at Monza? I disagree Schumi cost Lewis the race and deserved a 20-25 second penalty, and I also don't see the need to still be going on about it.

Anyway, yes Jackie has a right to his point of view. I don't defend everything Michael has ever done, I think he has made mistakes of judgement, but don't count his driving at Monza amongst them. Quite the opposite actually, I enjoyed the racing between him and Hamilton there very much.

Really all I wanted to do was point out a nice piece that Murray Walker did saying Schumi is a 'top bloke'.

Agreed.

I like AS and MS. The problem is that we often come across individuals who unconditionally praise Senna, while unconditionally vilifying Schumacher. Both are some of the greatest drivers. But, they both made errors.

Schumacher's defending in Monza was masterclass, it's said motorsport went into another direction

From 1950 to late 90s, F1 was one thing, nowadays it's just a pop show very few related to real racing :|

What is up with Michael lately?

He seems to have a bit of fire in the old belly at last. I must say, the most enjoyable thing about the rather prosaic Italian GP was seeing 'old' (as in the Michael OF old) back :)

Nico did his lap when the track had a bit more rubber, this gap is so small that even 5 minutes of diference can make someone faster

Definitely not on the softs, hopefully on SS he's closer.

Edit: He definitely surprised me! Can he do it again in Q3?

P7 (I think he had a good chance to beat NR) and better side vs. 8th and one new set more.
If his start is good the decision was ok, if not...

he's got the dirty side but this move shows that beating nico isn't really what he looks for. it's not the most important thing for him
