I personally think he should never have returned as in my mind I won't remember him as the legend he was in his Ferrari days but as a has been which is a shame

schumacher on the lash in spa! im sure that will help!! seriously i wish him a well deserved good result in spa his living room as he calls it, its forecast is wet friday showers saturday and wet sunday so i think a podium is realistic, think his race pace has given Nico something to think about this year.

Schumi should have no regrets , he has returned to participate against the most competitive drivers assembled on a grid at one time i think 6 WDC, and as DC said this is a golden era of F1 and although Schumi is being schooled by his teammate with him being 47 points behind Nico Schumi is still giving it his all.

I don't know if Schumi's 40+ years means he has lost some of his skill or he is just driving in an era where the drivers are superior to those Schumi faced in his hay days.

Just being able to compete in modern F1 at 43 years old is an incredible achievement by Schumacher, it had been 40 years since a 43 year old stood on an F1 podium until MS did it this year, I'm willing to bet that no other 43 year old will do it again in the next 40 years.
Can you really see the likes of Lulu being competitive in F1 16 years from now? or even a genuinely great driver like Alonso still being in the game 12 years from now? I can't.

Please his Ferrari days (and to a lesser extent his Bennenton days) are the ones that will be remembered, because the Merc days have simply not been memerable.

Once a champion, always a champion. MS has redfined the meaning of success in motorracing, both on and off the track. Anyone who cannot see that is a fool.

Both of you need a reality check. F1 was never about a level playing field throughout the entire F1 history. The best drivers will always try to get the best equipment, and that included Senna.

Why don't you two name me some champions that won a championship with a car that's outside of the top 3 cars?

You can fluke 1 title, but c'mon, 7 titles, one must has a certain driving skill, even if you insist that he had some good cars.
