@ andrew No it's ok to support your favorite driver. But, some of the comments made by Schumi's fanboys were over the top and unrealistic. Like coming back to F1 and winning his 8th title right out the box! Give me a break! All those comments seems ridiculous now, don't they??!!

Why is it ridiculous? None of us know what the future holds. Lulu and Alonso may well never get another championship yet their fanboys continually say they will. I think I will find that laughable and mock the Lulu and Alonso fanboys when they bang on about them getting another championship.

@ andrew my only problem with Schumacher's comeback was his age! Hamilton & Alonso are still young guys! It's very unlikely a man in his 40's could still drive a racecar the way he used to when he was in his 20's! Time is the great equalizer!

Everybody has the right to support their drivers.......and yes Schumacher WAS an incredible driver but everybody has to recognize that he is no longer the same,.......I suspect that this might be his last year. The problem is that, with the testing ban, teams are more likely to hire experienced drivers. I bet that, once the ban is gone, the dinosaurs (Schumachesaurious, Trullidactilus, etc) will leave. But that is my opinion

Kind of conflicting. A sport that wants to go "green" with KERS and tiny engines, they need 5 sets of tires per car for a race, plus practice sessions and quali. All that wasted rubber, the waste, and the energy to make them. You don't have to be a tree hugger to wonder about the amount of rubber used this weekend for a simple race which, in the grand scheme of things, means little.

Dario,

It does seem a bit hypocritical, I agree. However, my understanding is that F1 by going to smaller turbo engines is more about the sport's broader public image in being seen as a development platform of what is perceived as a greener and more politically acceptable engine specification, than it is about the actual carbon footprint of the F1 circus. If they were concerned with that, then they would stop using heavy carbon emmitting airliners to fly the cars to races out of Europe.

Schumi was brought in to help develop the car and nurture nico rosberg. nico is the star of the team not schumi. infact, it's a great tactic as nobody expects anything from nico, but he is the one to be watched.

Schumi already said it was his fault but nobody is laying into Petrov for ramming Heidi into the pit lane.

Why do people bother to comment about Schumi if they don't like him?
