Schumacher clearly has more off days than he ever had before his sabbatical .But he is still right up there. A great driver. Yappers do not underestimate him .

Ross will always stick up for Schumie because he knows it was the pair of them that turned ferrari around from being on the brink of disaster to being unbeatable for 5 years in a row.Ross is one of the best guys in f1 and i so hope him and Schumacher will show everyone yet again that they can still win together after all this time even if it is just once more.

MS is a VERY polished driver and does have what it takes, but that car is not up to the job.
As close as Niko has been, he's not exactly setting the world alight either in.
What a lot of the idiots on here fail to see is that finishing 7th is last the grid position usually go back to 22(?), that's a lot of people finishing behind him
considering your sitting at home on your fat ass!!!

In all fairness, it's time for Schuey to go!!

Love him or hate him, he is an exceptional talent but he has to accept that the 'kids' are beating him most weekends.

There'd be no disgrace if he called it a day and if he wanted to carry on racing i'd put a week's wages on him being able to get a top DTM drive.

WSB rools,i don't want to see Schumacher racing in DTM as i have no interest whatsoever in it,its like when he went riding bikes i could'nt even tell you what team he even rode for.I am just happy to still see him racing in f1 regardless of where he finishes,and does it really matter if he(as some say) is ruining his lagacy because i cannot see how it can be as no one can ever take away those 7 world titles and 91 race wins of his,anything else he now achieves is just a bonus.

No way he leaves the grid until his contract is up. The day he hits the podium the entire planet will come unglued. Micheal is a huge part of F1 and the reason many many across the pond tuned into F1 years ago.

Hey, Michael. I just turned 65, drive a Mustang and ride a Kawasaki "Ninja" ZX14, fastest production motorcycle in the world. I still got it and, at twenty-three years younger than me, so do you. So put the whip to that baby and I'll see you in Austin in 2012 when you're pushin' for that eighth World Drivers' Championship...
