after the last dismal performance it doesn't bode well but one should remember that he was the stronger of the two drivers in the first couple of races.. lets see how he goes in Canada, that will be the big test imo

Schumacher is without doubt (as the trophy's will attest), the greatest racing driver of the modern age. He is aggressive but he is a racer! This is not golf or bowls.....get ready for the best races of the season as it's all up in the air & the cream will always rise to the top. Go Schumi!!!

maybe he will try harder, BUT... the merc is not kind to its tyres, and due to there being little or no straights, the ddrs will not be of much benefit in quali. therefore, do not expect the mercs to be too well up in quali. then, due to difficulty in passing at monaco, i cannot see much of a progression up the field.

When will people who idolise, or, hold up people like Schumacher to be sporting icons understand that trophies or accolades are worthless if cheating was involved to gain them, in Schumachers case the past three seasons have proved that his so called "achievments",even to the dimmest, are dubious and highly questionable, but apparently you are dubbed a "Schummi" hater if you espouse the values of sportsmanship and fairplay, its a question of ethics and moral values ,either you have them or you dont.

Richard, I'm guessing these might pop up....

The coming together with Villeneuve - Duly punished.

The coming together with Dhill - Completely Dhill's fault.

Parking his car at Monaco - Hardly a hanging offence but duly punished.

The funny thing is all of Schumacher's on track "moments" were spur of the moment decisions and he received fair punishment because of them. Mr Senna on the other hand intentionally drives into someone at 180mph to prove a point, not to mention win a World Championship, receives no punishment what so ever, admits that it was premeditated and he's seen as pure as the driven snow, strange World eh?

ty. of course they will come up. but are these CHEATING? i wouldnt class them as that. unethical for 1 and 3, yes.

cheating includes such things as stealing others data and using it yourself. putting in a secret fuel tank to mislead scrutineers, putting in an extra fiddle pedal to break the no traction control rule etc etc.

i am glad that you agree that the dhill crash has been admitted by hill, as his own fault. there are many who still go on about it being schumis.
