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...

While I dont think that Senna would be straight into the merc, I do think Paul DiResta would be which would free up the seat at force india which would be a good move for Bruno, too long at the back with the likes of hispania, virgin and one of the lotus teams will knock the shine from anyones career

Honestly if theres no chance of a run at the championship or even a win whats the point why tarnish the history he had (deservingly or not) hes not the same driver that cheated against the likes of Hill, Villeneuve

Well i guess it's up to the team which driver they would use. They are not stupid. If merc thinks there is a better driver that can perform (example diresta), then surely they wont extend schumacher. My point is if you're a great driver then nothing can prevent you to drive for the top team. Not even schumacher.

Not the same driver as 94 97? Sure. Not as fast in the 90s 2000s? Maybe. No chance to win wdc or even a win? Are you kidding. Tarnish his reputation? Oh please.. you cant take 7 title from him. So what to lose? The problem is the car. Everyone know that w02 is a crap. Put vettel, button, hamilton, alonso in that car, then they would end up the same.

so to show his talent and ability he needs a wet race? Rosberg is getting the job done well enough excluding Monaco because of his smash and Canada because of the weather he's had better quali and better results inc leading for about 15 laps, im not saying the merc f1 car isnt a dog it is and im suprised Mercedes haven't asked for their money back from Ross Brawn

also if you bring up Imola 08 you have to look at spa 09 force india were unlucky to lose that race and that was in the dry

Schumacher is an immense talent I don't care what any one says about him having the best car in the past he made it work he dominated 7 titles 2 different teams and I think I'm right in saying Ferrari hadn't won the title for 20 years until he did it in 2000.
He might not be as good as he was but is still on the pace at 42, does any one honestly think that Alonso Hamilton or Vettel will be at that age?

All this noise about the old Dog is not necessary.
the solution is easy to identify..Mercedes you car is close to the top five, just a touch more speed is
the key. The old dog knows the score better than
anyone on the grid, good things will happen.
He almost stole a spot on the podium in a car that
was not really fast, or quick.
I was surprised, really enjoyed watching him join the fight, it was cool to see that happen.
I think that 'Old Dog' Schumacher just sent a message.

Badman, Jose

Its a funny thing -- If Schumacher can put it on top of the box a couple of times, it will inspire him to continue -- there's just no substitue for winning. But then again, if he can win enough to get near another championship, it will be enough for him to feel he accomplished enough to retire for good. Of course, its all up to the car at this point -- later it will all be up to whatever it is in the heart of a racer that is "used up" over time.

Mercedes must be mad,they should ditch the underperforming-deadwood Schumacher now,one fluke result in a chaotic and extraordinary race is no substitute for consistentcy in all conditions.Give Di Resta the job now and be done with it.
