F1 » Schumacher F1 comeback 'a huge error personally'

Michael Schumacher made 'a huge error personally' in believing that at 41 years of age, he could return to F1 and still battle it out with rivals 20 years younger than him, contends former team owner-turned-BBC F1 pundit Eddie Jordan...

It's kinda sad that these big personalities in F1 absolutely said he would be winning in 3 races, no doubt about it, now there all lining up to kick him in the scrotum.

Now its the one's who have never supported him when he was winning that are now asking that he be given a go.

Someone said before that F1 is like World Wrestling, who would you trust with your life in that snake pit??? Norbert? Last seen sneaking into Kimi's house for a chassis inspection, though to be fair, he was easily spotted. No matter how he performs F1 and Merc got their names up in lights and should be a bit more patient.

Whenever EJ comes on the screen during the BBC coverage (which is generaly very good), I find myself screaming at the TV "Speak English or Die!"

Why can the man not string a sentence together? Why in interviews does he start out looking liek he is going to ask a question, verbally meanders about, and then ends up making a confusing statement. The only enjoyment from these interludes is watching the mix of irritation, incredulity and bemusement on the faces of interviewees like Whitmarsh and Horner.

I aint no Schumacher fan, think he is a arrogent cheeting git! But I do think the reason why he was so good is because he doesn't know how to quit and thrives on a challenge. I do believe he will stick it out and get back to what he was b4.

Why do you bother doing a story on what Eddie Jordan has to say? Slow news day? I am interested in the opinions of people who have something worthwhile to say, the only jordan I'm interested in listening to is a JX92S.

Robsy - you are exactly right. Jordan just doesn't have the mind to be a competent interviewer (and probably pundit too). But he is amusing at least. Makes you wonder how he ever managed to run a team in the first place.

However if MSC is around next year I wouldn't expect him to be winning then either. And as a non-Schumacher fan I love seeing his mediocrity.

crash, this is old news. to be fair to eddie jordan he said the same in the british press since schumacher's comeback was announced and has stuck to his opinion ever since. i actually agree with him. i don't see what ms gains from coming back at a time when the driver line up is stronger than it ever was when he was in his prime. its a "no win" situation for him imho.

and guys... what has the colour of someones pants got to do with anything?
