He's retired from F1. Didn't mention racing otherwise.
Have a few weeks off over winter and have a go at this - then your credibility in many peoples eyes will be dramatically improved.


Or he could become the German answer to Jean Gerard and go here...



I vill beat you Ricky Bobby you yankee schweinehund!

Indeed. But one thing I have never heard from Michael is the level of arrogance that JYS has always spouted and has managed to do once again in that piece. There was absolutely no need for him to compare MS records with his average.

Interesting tweet from Taki Inoue:
Taki Inoue @takiinoue

The greatest racing driver of this century announced his retirement, but the sh*test one haven't announced his retirement yet for 17 years.

So who is he referring to as not being the best?
Probably himself, he's been making fun of himself on Twitter recently. Little bit odd really.

eg....

"Some people want to compare me and Mr.Ide. But I don't like it. Believe me! I'm far Sh#tter than him by miles away! No one competes with me!"

"#bbcf1 is showing greatest drivers countdown. Is it possible to do sh*test drivers countdown as well? I'm confident to get in top 10 easily."

OK you don't like what we have to say so read Sir Jackie and the bits between the lines at the beginning of and the end of his piece on the Beeb, plus what he reports as the F1 communities thinking. I am in total agreement with what he has written, however he has diplomatically/legally avoided getting into the issues of Scumacher's bad driving and lack of Sportsmanship shown from when he was in karts to when he nealy killed Rubens that will also ALWAYS be remembered, not least because it is all captured on digital video;

...nearly kill Rubens? What? When?

Ah. I see. In that context it makes a bit more sense. I thought he was having a pop at a current driver. Doh!

Just heard BBC R5Live Sports Newscast ~ Michael Schumacher crashed out of the Japanese Grand Prix ... apparently ... nothing else and no other drivers mentioned ... perhaps Di Resta is already past it ... and not worth a mention .... smile

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn says Michael Schumacher is the greatest Formula 1 driver of the 21st century. That's good enough for me. Sad to see him go.

Rosberg must be the second coming then as he has whooped Schumis ass over the last two seasons and looks like he will do it again this year.

And explain what your sad about exactly? What has he brought to the table?

Exactly. And thats my point, if Rosberg can at the very least match him then whats happened to the Legend that could lap the whole field and win races stuck in 1 gear etc,etc

Serious question Wanta.... when did you become a big fan of F1?

I ask because even the most hardened McLaren race fans I know have always begrudging accepted that Schumacher was an amazing driver and one of the best ever, despite the fact he beat the McLaren's so many times. I wonder what it is that causes you to think the way you do. My only assumption is that you're new to F1 and you're following a moronic bandwagon of Schumacher bashing that seems to only exist in the UK because of what happened in Adelaide 1994.

Really? You seem to refuse to take the point that the man is 43 and clearly past his prime. That's really not difficult to take into consideration. MSC is undeniably a legend and one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time.

I don't know you but (and this is not meant to cause any offence), but you do seem to have an axe to grind and don't seem to take on board a lot of the quite sensible things people have pointed out. In my opinion this significantly undermines that veracity of the arguments you make.

MSC is not the racing driver he was in this second bite of the cherry, but I just don't see how one can argue with his record. I also don't see how this makes him anything other than a person who took a gamble on a ill-advised comeback when he should have realised he was past his prime. There are loads of sporting legends who've done this, and nearly all of them have failed without having the effect of erasing the good and great things they might have acheived.

Like I said in other post, you really do need to give the devil his due. Even Andrew Benson has.smile

"It is ironic, then, that there have been marked signs of improvement from Schumacher this season. In 14 races so far, he has actually out-qualified Rosberg eight-six.

And although Rosberg has taken the team's only win - in China earlier this year, when he was demonstrably superior all weekend - arguably Schumacher has been the better Mercedes driver this year.

Schumacher has suffered by far the worst of the team's frankly unacceptable reliability record and would almost certainly have been ahead of Rosberg in the championship had that not been the case. And he might even have won in Monaco had not a five-place grid penalty demoted him from pole position."

Yes, i do remember the incident with Damon and the almost identical incident a few years later in Jerez(Only driver to ever be banned) and also parking his car on the racing line in Monaco to ruin Alonso's lap,do you want me to go on???. He is a nasty piece of work and its the Maronic Schumi bandwagon love in that makes me laugh.

My point was why would any poster be sad to see him leave as he has brought nothing to the table, they should be relieved that he is gone. His school boy error in practice today just sums up his return perfectly.

Yes, do go on... about Alonso's own record which is far from whiter than white.

If that incident parking his car on the racing line during Monaco Qualifying was a deliberate and calculated ploy designed to spoil Alonso's effort to secure pole then it was a Meister Stroke of Dick Dastardly mega proportions.... credit where it's due and all that ... smile

Can you not recall any 'iffy' incidents involving whiter than white Alonso?

If you cannot, you really must try harder.
