Too early for him to stop... I'd be glad to see Schumi fight for another year at least... MercedesGP has to provide him more competitive car to compete with other young racers...

bernie ecclestone and jackie stewart rarely agree on anything,, so for them to agree on this says a lot. the car isnt very good but previously he had enough about him to get something out of the races, now we see him banging wheels and getting bumped around by drivers who really wouldnt be able to get near him if he was operating at even three quarters of the capacity f1 fans expected. brawn/mercedes let him down with the car, but he is letting himself down ontrack, then we have lewis hamilton rightly or wrongly telling us that this season he didnt expect anything from the most decorated driver in f1 history, i dont want to see that!

Depends a lot on whether Kimi fancies coming back.

The car hasn't been great, but that doesn't explain why Rosberg has done a good job with it in comparison. Schu has done what Merce wanted - grabbed headlines pre-season and brought in sponsors.

I hope MS stops. He's a legend but he's a shadow of his former self. He's nothing to prove so why battle on getting beaten easily by Nico who is good but no FA or LH. If he goes, that a good seat available for SV or maybe Kimi

Whats he damaging its his history to do with what he wants no matter what he does it does not take away from what he has already achieved hello.
I want to see him back next year in a car that he has had import into just like the old days . Maybe he is a bit slower but i think he still got a bit left yet and good luck to him :)

Gifted drives in superior cars ,often running other people off the track to score a world championship ie Damon Hill,team orders to make sure no.2 driver Barichello stays behind,arrogant enough to think he can do a Rossi a be competative on a motorcycle and isnt,Very glad he came back to show his real talent....

He was looking good for this seat until Schumi came along and spoilt his party. He beat Kubica for the most part and Kubica is hailed as the second coming where he gets rated as average at best. He beat Kimi when they were team mates (of course Kimi was much younger). Kimi then goes on to get all the good drives and may now come back and take the Mercedes drive. Meanwhile Heidfeld sits and watches grandpa Schumie drive around like a slow poke, surely thinking he could go faster as his skills rot as test driver... when there is hardly any testing.
