Firstly, I am a Schumi fan (not a die hard fan thou :).
Secondly, I did feel puzzled when I learned that he was the reason for the aborted start.
Nevertheless, I do believe that stupid things happen even to great professionals. And no one can argue that he is a great F1 driver. I also do believe that Formula1 does share some of it's history with this great man. And no, I do not believe that his time is passed. Not yet. Not this year. Not the next one either. It takes a Schumi hater to not see his performance this year, which is by far better than his team mate. It it was not of his several DNF's (most of them because of his team) he would have been higher in points then Rosberg. And, do not forget that his boss (Ross Brawn) has admitted more then once that the team has let down Schumacher several times and that the car is lacking at least .5 seconds of pace compared to the front runners.
As per the aborted start in Hungaroring, I say simply, **** happens, to everyone.

I've never liked Schuey (Hill and Hakkinen fan back in the day!!) but that aside, he really ought to retire now, as all he is achieving is blemishing the best statistical record in F1 history. And as much as I dislike him I still don't appreciate seeing someone lose as much dignity as he has. Its time to make a space for a new driver to have a turn.

What a joke by some of these so called f1 fanatics lool. The reason why he turned his engine off is because the telemetry was telling him his engine was overheating you fools. The nonsense about old age is a joke loool. The only reason why Mercedes came back or was even formed was becuase of schumi he basically revived Ferrari with Rory Byrne. Ferrari had not won the world championship since 1979 come on now so please let the legend do what he wants he certainly does not need the money his earned the most money out of all the current and previous F1 drivers. So to come on here and attack the legend who inspired a generation i.e Vettel etc. If Mercedes give him and Rosberg a car capable of winning races and he flops than you can start blaming him but this car is a joke

Schumacher did absolutely the right thing by turning off his engine. For those who disagreed with my last post..did the previous comments come from people who were aware of the facts, that his telemetry was showing an overheating engine. That his car got a puncture, that his telemetry was only partially working towards the end of the race, no, once again this complete tripe about age? what is this about? Is he suddenly senile, he cant function properly after he turns 40. Have you any idea of the supreme ability everyone of those drivers have to do what they do? You cant even imagine.
