Why are so many jealous of this man. Although the skills may have diminished slightly, it is not schumacher to blame. As even rosberg stated no one could win his car. If rosberg goes on to win this year and schumi still lags behind then maybe it will be time to wrap it up. Until then let mercedes and ross brains figure this pig of a car out before any body judge.s the greatest driver in any motorsport. Nicki lauda the old folks home called they want you to return..

If Schumacher was failing in a competitive car then I would agree he has to reitre. But the Merc is a complete dog. They need an entire new team in Brackly as they are still using a lot of staff from the BAR/Honda days.

Its unfortunate that they cant be competive as it would have been fantastic to watch him go wheel to wheel with Hamilton and Alonso. Ah well.

Niki you have no chance of that happening, as Schumacher has never been known to be honest in any thing he ever did,he does not know the meaning of the word honesty, He is a cheat.

The sad truth is, you can't fight the age factor and with so much young talented drivers so hungry to win and oblivious to risks, unfortunately his vast experience is no substitute for the shear speed the young drivers around him display.

What Michael should do is give it until the middle of next season and if he is still not showing any signs of improving then retire gracefully,going at the end of this year would definatly be the wrong thing to do i think.

Lauda, again...please Dude this decision has to be made
by Mr. Schumacher, no one else. Schumy has admitted
that the problem may be his under preforming for the lack of point production. The old Champ made a strong statement. I salute with thumbs up, not many drivers would be that honest. I see that you appointed yourself
the creme de la creme, noise maker for F1. Whats best when you are around, we should all ware 'Earplugs'..

The more I think (yes I do sometime)maybe it might be best for shuemy to wait until mid season next year. Mercedes just might get its ass in gear and produce a car that can compete with the top five.
Have you ever driven a SL65 Amg-Black..Mercedes can produce that street monster and fail to design a competitive F1 car..NUTS!

C'mon guys. I'm a Schumi fan but when last did he beat Nico? How many times has Nico completely outraced him & out-qualified him? I know the MB is not the best car but its sad seeing MS making rookie mistakes, crashing into people and most of all beaten easily by Nico. NL not saying anything we don't all really know. This MS is not the amazing driver who used to thrash the field in his Fearrai
