It hardly matters what he thinks he is driving the last few races of his career and I'm sure most of us would like to see him get a podium or two before he finally goes.
His comeback may have been a big mistake if he really thought that he was going to win anything, but he really still seems to enjoy racing and one could not imagine him being like that when he was winning all the time. Mercedes have let him down very badly. Along with McClaren they have a very bad record this season for cock-ups, unrealibility and wrong strategies. He has always said it takes five years to build a team it's a pity he will not be around to see that come to fruition.

Karma or sth? Maybe all lucky years in far more superior car than of the others + "Rubens, let Michael pass for the championship"-style of winning has now to be paid.

He wouldn't ever be 7x WDC had Ayrton been still around and/or he had a real opposition in his dominant Ferrari days.

He was bloody good, but "all time great"? I don't think so.

newbie, schumi got his intro to f1 courtesy of merc, who paid for a drive in the jordan. when he finally ended up in ferrari, he pledged the rest of his career to them. then, when ferrari lost their edge, he retired. he stayed on as an ambassador for ferrari, but when they offered him a chance to drive again, he said that he couldnt because of his neck. then merc suddenly offered him a drivve, and he was ok again. a miraculous recovery. he left ferrari in a bad light, and since then pledged his support for merc, saying that when he retires again he would stay on as an ambassador.

so, the chances of him going to ferrari, or being wanted there are NIL.
