CDF, thats a very important point you brought up there. Im not a big fan of MSC but since his return ive been wanting him to do well. Since his return he has never out performed his team-mate, and in the wet qualifying in Sepang showed us that he is no longer the "reign-meister". We have seen times before in his career where his car wasnt able to perform, but this is the first time we have seen that Michael HASNT been able to perform. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The fact that the rumours are there suggest that MS wont be continuing into 2011. MS has always been an amazing driver yet it is clear that he is having difficulty regaining his form, whether this is due to his age or something else remains to be seen but being over 1 second of his team mates Quali time shows it. I'm not the biggest MS fan quite the opposite however I feel sorry for him because if he cannot improve and does in fact leave at the end of the season he will forever be remembered for his failed comeback :-o

Michael has been unlucky this season..His pace isnt on par with nico at the moment but thats understandable..
He is racing a sophisticated and complicated race car not some hill billy road car as some of us seem to think..
Michael has nothing to lose this year.he said that before the season started.
he will be back to his best once the european leg of the season starts...
Nico is a strong driver and he wont be easy to beat but MSC will find a way.. trust me he will..
the car isnt good enough this year and i think they will go the "brawn" way and start working on next years car maybe as early as even july..
schumi should target WDC next year

CDF

you missed out saome important facts:

1. lulu was parachuted into the best car
2. uncle ronny made sure that lulu had it all their own way
3. schumacher has not race in 3 years. when lulu started in f1 he had been racing constantly in previous years and could do as much testing as he liked

when schumacher wins will you issue a post admitting you were wrong? doubt it. you aint got the cajones

CDF used to bost as BA before he was banned and posted all sorts of anti MS stuff on every thread.

Hamilton had a tonne of testing before he was 'parachuted' into the best car that year.

I'm not MS biggest fan but lets wait and see, the car has some pretty major built in understeer which doesn't suit his style, there is a big upgrade for Baracelona thats supposed to sort that and aero issues. A few rounds after that if he's still performing the same we can start discussing it been only one year.

Like most driver contracts the additional years are probably options.

I can't see Schumacher seeing out his 3 year contract. for 1, I don't think his ego can take being second best, and 2, being a number 2 his massive salary is very hard to justify.

Come on guys, surely it's way too early to start talking about quitting. I'm not a MS fan, nowhere near it in fact, but I'd give him much more time than 3 races. Actually, having been away for 3 years, I'd treat 2010 as a relearning year and push for something in 2011. So long as he is enjoying himself and not being a disaster on the track, I can't see him giving up so easily. It's not in his character.

If you ever remember the past when Schumacher Ferrari plus (FIA)cheating everything SUPERIORS THEN HIS TEAM, OR ANY BODY ELSE in grid, but things is different from before because equal car and some equipment driver made thing difficulty for the drivers used to have more superiority then their team made look Alonso he used to just like Schumacher when he was Renoult. then we all remember what happen 2007, and know starting struggling to come over with his team mate Massa, just wait and how long could Alonso shut-up his mouth and saying that iam seek tied up with staying back behind Massa. :rolleyes:
