Living in the past?
Surely F1 is about history.
I am simply pointing out that actions speak louder than words.
Who would you rather young people of today try to emulate?
It may be idealistic but highly paid successful sportsmen (and women) have a responsibilty as public figures to set and hold standards.
Regardless of Michael's success, I for one don't believe he has done that.....

Has anyone thought that the previous years at Mercedes, he was brought in to develop the car and team like he did for Ferrari when he first joined them. In season testing is banned so perhaps he used the race to do it and points and whatever came his way in the race was just a bonus? Just a thought as it took a good few years with Ferrari to be really competitive and for him to win championships with them.

Have to admit Schumacher bent the rules on occasion, as did many of that era. However, he won 7 world championships. Dodgy tactics and crap driving abound today with the younger aspirants, the list is endless, especially over the last 2-3 years, but none of them will hope to get near seven titles, with the exception of Vettel. Get over it, Schuey is a Legend.

You know most people tend to forget what this man has achieved , I mean even to be driving at his age is quite a feat on its own.

When he got back so many people were quick to write him off, they pridicted he would call it a day in the first year of his comeback, but he is still here . It is quite clear that he is very determined to proved his critics wrong , he already has anyway in my opinion and its only a matter of time till he is fully and I mean fully in tune with his Merc . I for one admire his courage and his hunger for hardwork and the drive to compete with this younger generations of drivers, he doesnt have to be in F1 he doesnt need the money , he has a lot of it already as it is . I am hoping he stays and I hope he retires on a high this time around , I would love to hear DC commentating on a Schumie win , it is something I look forward to.

Well said. The grid today is full od 'Wannabes', and all of them would do what it takes to emulate Schumacher. Some are 'pay for drive' some living on connections, some no hopers. To win seven titles is a MASSIVE achievement. He is not flamboyant, loud mouthed or critical of the team. Alonso is in a similar mould, as Schey, and Webber is up there too.

page 22. not that old hoary chestnut again! schumi did not deliberately take out hill, and hill has also admitted that. damon, in print and on tv, stated that first of all, it would have been impossible for schumi to see him, and second, that he (hill) took a chance and went for a closing gap, and didnt make it. get over it, damon has!

Funny how people can still blame Schumacher for the Dhill crash, even after Dhill accepted that it was his fault.

Brainless!

Show some respect for Schumacher's achievements, few others, if any, will ever equal it.

Wow - there are some crazy dullards on this site. All Schumacher showed was passion, speed and the desire to win. Perhaps we should open up more space for pay driver who want to impress their privilged chums and not really care about the racing. Really, it's pathetic that the only thing you can all mention is his age... in many countries that would be illegal if you were an employer. At least he races - unlike the young guys like steady Eddie Rosberg... grow some balls you tarts and realise F1 is not nice polite drivers - otherwise your great aunt Beryl would be racing for Ferrari et al. Jeez!!
