F1 » Schumacher 'human and fragile', not 'a strong robot', says Todt

FIA President Jean Todt - a man who knows and understands record-breaking F1 legend Michael Schumacher better than most - offers a fascinating insight into the German's mindset as he battles to regain his former glory in the top flight

Michael is an infiltration unit, part man-part machine. Underneath it's a hyperalloy combat chassis, microprocessor controlled, fully armored, very tough. But outside it's living human tissue. Flesh, skin, hair, blood, grown for the cyborgs. He will crush the competition in 2011.

I can and will wait until Monaco 2011..
Mr. Todt is correct. We as fans know very little about Michael Schumacher. We all know about is his 7 WDC, a true master behind the wheel, very little about the man I call Schuey.

2011 will tell the story, remember what Ferrari's Massa had to say about Schuey driving,
"you don't really think he forgot how to drive"
Play the odds if you like, my money is on

I was intouch with jean todt and michael schumacher during 2006 season with them on ferrari, i felt like i was part of their family. But the fact that i was only watching them on screen.

I don't really care if he is "fragile" or not. All I know is that I just want to keep enjoying the marvellous spectacle of the most over-rated driver in history repeatedly and spectacularly failing next year as well as this.

There could be a lot of truth to Todt's comment. I don't think that MS was prepared for the fallout that he received from the Monaco "parking" incident. It probably played a large factor in his decision to retire.
