F1 » Brawn: Mercedes open to Schumacher extension

Whilst insisting that it is still far too early to discuss the matter, Ross Brawn concedes that should both sides perform well in 2012, there is 'no reason' why Michael Schumacher and Mercedes Grand Prix should not prolong their relationship...

I am afraid that as long as Ross Brawn is the team principle at Merc GP then Michael is wasting his time. Every year he promises the world and delivers Jamaica. Please Ross retire and let somebody else take over ... and take the whole design team with you.

@DBL ... very true and especially the fact that the 1 result was in tricky weather conditions. When the cars were equalised by the wet track then Michael was the master. As soon as they got onto slicks then the car was a sitting duck.

Michael can't wait too long for Mercedes to develop the car to the point where it can win races. After all, father time is working against him. Having said that, it would be sensational to at least see him go out with a win or two.

Honestly, I think as long as Brawn is there, Schumacher will be able to stay there as long as he likes, no matter how bad he drives.

Because he's freakin' Schumacher man!

Brawn should not get excited too much about Shueys Canada GP results - most expected him to do well in that race where experience counted a lot being wet.

He would have done better had it not been for drag reduction overtaking because what he's good at is blocking but that counts for nothing now.

Most drivers made mistakes as a result of not being able to block and put under pressure with drag reduction wing to push hard to not get passed

Schumi has the bit between his teeth and Norbert Haug can see the change in him - they definitely won't let him go now,they must soldier on.He is just as good as he was in the old days,perhaps better now as he has so much more experience.
Age doesn't seem to be a factor with the greatest driver of all time,he is still the superstar of F1,look at the crowds around him in any race.In Canada at the end of the race the Schumi fans were pouring onto the track as they really thought he was 2nd.
Nice to know he now has many new fans who didnt support him in the old days.Welcome on board,you are about to see the living legend push Merc GP to the top.BUT Michael must first agree to STAY ON!!

Schumacher, Trulli, and Barrichello need to retire. They are the reason that Nico Hulkenburg, Lucas DiGrassi, and Bruno Senna dont have drives. These old guys staying around too long are stuffing the careers of young and talented drivers.
