F1 » Never write Schumacher off, cautions Hill


Quipping that it 'was nice to see' his erstwhile sparring partner and bitter title rival again in Monaco this year, 1996 world Champion Damon Hill warns to write Michael Schumacher off - however badly his celebrated F1 comeback has gone so far - would be madness

Not this year and not in that car. If he happens to win due to attrition its a bonus but I doubt that will even happen when you look at the rest of the field and the improvements they have made. It seems Mercedes is moving backwards and not forward.

I hope Schumi gets back to the top, but if there's one thing the current generation on F1 has taught me, it's that I don't know anything.

If you'd asked me in 2008 who would win the 2009 WDC, the name 'Jenson Button' couldn't have been further from my lips.

Now he's the reigning WDC and managing to stage a title fight with a new team. Impressive....

There is no way we can judge MS's performance based on this season so far.
How things can change in 3 or 4 years...

I for one am getting very bored of the constant stream of "Schumi is still a good driver" articles. He chose to return to F1 people should stop defending him for having a hard time.

@Bobby B, bang-on, none of the other also-rans are given as much airtime (or slack) as MS. He's a big boy, should be able to handle himself.

Funny, but his driving and persona reminds me of Damon himself after the glory days, when with a couple of exceptions he looked completely lost.

Damon Hill IS the real deal and a perfect English gentleman to boot.Great to see Josh Hill coming up so well through the roots.Graham Hill was a real character, I remember he pulled Jackie Stewart out of a crashed car flooded with petrol in Spa many years ago
