Why has Schumacher become such a car breaker?

Random chance, stochasticity, and nothing more.

Yea, he probably just jammed the button on his wheel by using way too much force. Happens to me too sometimes. I just hit a key on my keyboard and suddenly it's just stuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
Of course it was Schumacher's fault in Montreal. He was pushing that DRS button way to firmly. If only he would have used a lighter touch.

In previous races he also ruined his DRS with his clumsy thumb, and over aggresive driving forced his wheel nut to fail in a pitstop. He also broke the laws of physics by over revving a gearbox in a fly by wire system.
I'm tired of hearing this line too that 'Michaels fans all said Rubens/Kimi/Insert random name here was a car breaker, so eat crow suckers!!' Its pathetic.
Why do F1 'fans' have to consistnely pitch against one another like this? How about a communal love and enjoyment of the sport without having to behave like 5 year olds?
The quality of threads/debate on this forum is rapidly becoming as much of a joke as Mercedes quality control, and I'm tired of feigning respect for this sort of rubbish.
Where is the quality debate?

In the early 1990s, when F Williams was asked whether he should ask Mansell--who *was* known as being tough on the car--if he should ask Mansell to go easier, FW said--I paraphrase--"Absolutely not--it's OUR job to build a car he can drive in his way."
Such a silly thread...

Much as I think Schumacher is bed-blocking a seat a younger driver could make better use of if you leave aside his mini spate of breaking front wings by running into the back of slower card he has never been a car breaker
But as Brundle always said ( nearly always about. Coulthard) " A driver has to make his own luck" , Schumacher has simply exhausted the the big bucket of luck he had in his younger days.
If he puts too much pressure the Mercedes team it will be counter productive and more mistakes are likely to occur on both for him and Rosberg. We are now at a stage in the season where the team should give priority to Rosberg with whom in a pot luck season they could just about stand an chance of doing well in both championships.
Of course somebody will suggest Schumacher's Merc is fitted with the mythical mechanical excuse button but even Schumacher non-fan that I am wouldn't believe that one.
