Hang on there a moment, Schumacher got comprehensively trashed by Rosberg last season, a total spanking, a complete schooling did Schumacher receive at the gifted hands of Mr. Rosberg, and this season sees Schumacher struggling mightily to get on even terms with the young talented Rosberg. So even if Schumacher does manage to eek out a higher points tally this season (with the aid of Ross and team orders it would now appear) it does not mean that Schumacher is better then the winless Mr. Rosberg. The combined points tallies for the past two seasons is Rosberg 217 Schumacher 142, Schumacher's total points deficit since he was teamed with young Mr. Rosberg is 75 points. If and when Schumacher manages to even up those numbers then we could say he has reached the same level as Rosberg. That leaves a long row to hoe for Schumacher, even with Ross in his corner screwing Rosberg at every turn it will still be a long time before Schumacher can manage to erase that enormous deficit. So at the moment Schumacher is not even a match for Rosberg and may never be.
Now consider this Schumacher has toiled two seasons as Rosberg's number two and in that time he has yet to manage a points total in either of those years that is greater then the total deficit for the two season period in question. Holy Crap!
Looking at the numbers this way it would seem obvious that Schumacher is currently a mid pack driver (flattered by teamorders) Combine that with all the ugly baggage that comes with Schumacher, punting, cheating, chopping, parking…. and it becomes very very clear that Schumacher is not and never will be among the great drivers of F1. Drivers like Senna Villeneuve, Clark, Alonso, Ascari, Rindt, Peterson, Stewart, Lauda! … Schumacher’s spotted record and his total sportsmanship fail over the years completely and entirely excludes him for consideration. That is not even mentioning the FACT that he can't best Rosberg without Ross hamstringing Nico. Schumacher among the greats ....pfffft not a chance.
That was a good laugh......
Using the performance of a 41 year old (in 2010) to characterize ALL of his career?
Misrepresenting the narrowing of that gap by a 42 year old, by your own flights of fancy (team orders?) in 2011?
Criticizing MS's ruthlessness ontrack, while simultaneously lauding Senna.....?
Man..... Like others have said....
You Know MS is Back When Utter BS Like This Emerges
