Schumie stressed quite a few of the young(er) guns today, pity the team arent giving him a very good car. Id love to see him in the vicinity of Kimi Raikkonen again before the seasons out, they seem to be in some kind of private competition when on track, very entertaining from two proper races.

nath. i am here, dont worry. yes schumi drove a reasonable race at the start, but his move on vettel was downright dangerous. how can you have a car alongside you, lock up all your wheels and then drive across the front of another car, to make the pit entrance. only quick reaction by seb, prevented a serious accident.

I hope the rumors are true. I admire MS for giving it the old college try. But, this comeback was a failure when u compare it to his first go round. To expect him to live up to those lofty standards was quite frankly unrealistic.

"Unfortunately we didn't quite have a quick enough car today"

I bet we will hear the same next race..this has been the same story
all season, slow car..Old Richard thinks the contributing factor for the
car beaning slow is Schumacher... That old boy Rich has been
consumed by an over gestation of nefarious Tiapan 'Logic'.

Pole Position,
The deciding factor in Schumacher's return is the car! To leave that
out your acquisition about the champ, is at best disingenuous, know nothingness, Noise!
Yes it is , Smile!

Seems to me Schumi has alot of haters on here loooooooooooool, his the best ever that is a fact loool stats and records don't lie his the richest on that grid so he does not need the money. I will admit of course he is know where near the standard he was at whilst he was at Ferrari, but some people seem to forget f1 is 80% the car and 20% the driver. It is quite evident his car is crap look at Roseberg as a reference in his last 4 races absolutely awful.

But you can keep hating the best always have haters when you win as much as Scummi has you will have admirers, worshipers, fanatics and downright HATERS i.e Roger Federer, Tiger woods, Usain Bolt, all have nasty nasty haters smh JEALOUS MUCH HMMMMMMMMMMMM

Richard - Perhaps you missed the part that Vettel was to pit if Michael didn't. Either way he had to be prepared to take the pit entrance. Surely if he was far enough along side of Michael he would have tried to prevent Michael from entering the pits.

@ jose I agree with u. I'm just not big on old guys coming out of retirement to see if they can pick up where they left off. In Schumacher's case I feel he is stunting the growth of a young driver who could benefit from being on a good team. You also have to take into consideration these comebacks for the most part usually don't work out.
