F1 » Ickx: Rosberg Schumacher's biggest enemy in F1 2010

Contrary to the popular school of thought, it could well be returning F1 legend Michael Schumacher who has difficulty in keeping up with Mercedes Grand Prix team-mate Nico Rosberg in F1 2010, argues Le Mans hero Jacky Ickx

The lack of respect drivers of the past get when making their opinions known staggers me. Will Shumacher get the same treatment is 25 years time?

Each and every one of these ex-drivers is more qualified to comment on racing then of us arm chair fanatics will ever be. Get over yourselves.

Grant: "I'm getting bored of these old F1 drivers throwing there 5p worth"

Don't blame the ex-drivers, blame the journalists who call them up and ask for an opinion.

Foo: "The lack of respect drivers of the past..."

Again, I don't think it is lack of respect for drivers of the past, rather its poor journalism. A good journalist would have called a number of ex-drivers, questioned their opinions, and tried to present a balanced opinion in one article. But its much easier to phone one guy, report what he says of the top of his head, and do article after article that way. Not surprisingly, readers soon get fed up of yet another ex-driver/Schumacher article.

I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with the standards of journalism this off season. All we've seen is articles about Schumacher, about politics between MS and Rosberg, about politics between Brawn and Button, Button and Hamilton. Where are the articles interviewing engineers about the challenges of no refuelling, or interviewing ex-drivers who have driven both with and without refuelling? Where are the articles about tyres, about the engine equalisations. All we get is the easy stuff, phone up a well known name, let him pontificate for five minutes, slap a controversial headline on it and call it an article.

Renew: "Herbert world champion? Wow. I can't decide if he needs to take more or less meds,..."

What JI said was that Herbert thought he could be world champion, and I'm sure JI is right. I'm sure every driver going into F1 thinks that if he has a good car under him then he has the talent to become WDC. F1 drivers need self-belief to get where they are.

Murray Walker frequently used to say that a driver's biggest threat is always his team mate. IF other drivers beat you then you can dismiss it as them having a better car on the day. If your team mate beats you, he's beaten you.

its nice to see that there are sensible people, such as foo and alan, posting on this thread. ickx is far, far more qualified on all of us, to comment reasonably. and he is still involved on the racing scene.

Of all ex drivers opinions,i would take only opinions of ex f1 champions which are,more or less the same.Alan D is right,and this storys are getting little boring.And who cares who thinks what,it will be a great seasson.

There is nothing wrong in JI opinion after all he is entitled to it and qualified better then some.
The trouble is certain comments by some such as (HERBERT'S SPEED FRIGHTENED MS)
As somebody once said, never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups!
