F1 » No copycat comeback for Schumacher Jr


Although no-one has realistically enquired about his services over the past four years, Ralf Schumacher has tried to set the record straight regarding his interest in F1.

Ralf didn't price himself out, he wasn't wanted.

He was a driver that F1 teams took on because they thought the Schumacher name would bring in some kudos.
At Jordan, Fisichella and Hill owned him.
At Toyota, Trulli demolished him.

Regarding "rolex" ralf, it's the first time I have heard that name being used.

He was one of the most arrogant people the F1 press ever dealt with. Over priced piece of crap

Absolute nonsense. Fisichella did not own him at Jordan and neither did Damon Hill. They both finished ahead of him by a few points in the championship and on both occassions Ralf had a lot of DNFs compared to his team mate. Some his own fault but most not. They were pretty evenly matched in qualifying all through the season too. He then went on to outperform Zanardi, Button and Montoya at Williams. He won plenty of races on merit. After his crash in Indy where he broke his back he was never as good.

Yes he was poor in his final seasons but thir revisionism where people claim he was never any good is ********.

Hill owned him.....what a load of bull!!!

Jordans' first win should have been ralphs', but Hill threatened to take him out in Spa if he dared to pass. Ralph was much quicker than Hill in the rain.

1996 Damon Hill won the WDC
1997, Damon hill begins with Arrows at the back of the grid, he transformed the team until he nearly won the 1997 Hungarian GP
1998, the Jordan was rubbish until the British GP that season, by Belgium it was ready for a win.

What's the common denominator in all this, a man who was an exceptional test driver who has never received the praise he truly deserved.

Even Michael doesn't get on with him anymore. Whats that tell you??
