Michael is not going to hang his shoes at end of this year.nobody knows the reason why he is not so fast this year.but no one can lose talent in overnight or in three years.e.g. alain prost :). he has already won seven titles.he has nothing to prove.just let him drive.

Just to let him drive, Harun M, is not the aim of either a GP driver or a GP team. Obviously the car is not on the pace yet and just maybe MS hasn't got the time available to him to get it right. Just remember how long it took him to get Ferrari in competative form !! :) :) :) :)

He needs another season to put in some respectable drives, if he leaves now his reputation will be ruined, he has to stay the course although he risks damaging his reputation further in the remainder of this year unless he up's his game.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Hey ho.

It took Michael nearly the whole of the 96 season to get used to the new Ferrari,give him time and he will eventually come good again and next year will be the year when he will be fighting again for the championship.

Schumacher wont win a race again let alone a championship. His reputation is really at stake and a lot of people will remember schey just for his failure of a comeback and not the things he deserves to be remembered for 7 world titles!!! :p

I personally think Schumi's doing a pretty good job, actually. I think it would be safe to say that Mercedes is not a champion team this year so nothing major to expect anyway.

One thing missing from Schumi's driving is the old fire and danger. Would be great to see the same ol' Dirty Schumi back in action. Take that FIA! ("Fair Play" has certainly never been the name of the game in F1) :)

I sorta think the only reason Schumacher is doing reasonably well this year is exactly because of how good he was previously.

After 3 years out and at 41, maybe thats all your going to get, next year he's 42. He just doesn't look sharp on track to me, and no one escapes the ageing process.

I really hope I'm wrong and next year in a car with his personal input, he really performs. Good to see Vettel showing a human side as well.

defensively as good as ever, it would have been good to see him able to take the fight to the frontrunners, but if mercedes give them another dog of a car next year it will be more of the same
