Never heard of Seb Morris or where he gets his money (rich daddy?) but nonetheless, they are there. As for being "awed" by Schumacher, he should remember Schumacher's history of wins is deeply flawed and that they are not getting away with deliberately taking other drivers out any more. Also at the end of the day Schumacher does not take his shoes and socks off any different to Morris. Seb should concentrate on himself.

How can you say such a thing? I presume you're inferencing the Villeneuve incident, a championship Michael didn't win anyway, and as for 94 he absolutely deserved the title, fending off Hill in the superior Williams and (albeit in three races) beat the supposedly enigmatic Senna who, might I add, was more aggressive and 'selfish' - often confused with foolish, than Schumacher.
What Schumacher has a accomplished he has absolutely deserved through hard work and determination. You do not win seven titles and near on a hundred races (not to mention transform two mediocre teams into multi title winners.

Michael Schumacher has earned the right to be named and considered (one of) the greatest ever and that is why he is both the most and least popular on the grid - he is admirably ruthless.

Never possible to have even a decent innocent story like this without the haters spouting the same old endless sh*te. What you all going to do next year assuming Schumi does retire.

In my opinion, anyone slagging off Schumacher or trying to minimize his accomplishments or impact on the racing world or Formula 1 are not really racing fans. It's like downplaying the accomplishments of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson or Larry Bird. You just can't do it, they're legends...and so is Schumi, despite the fact that he's older now and isn't having the success he once did. I still believe he'd be having a whole lot more success right now if his car would give him consistent performance.

Ah the age old 'he could only win in the fastest car and is actually a slow driver' argument...

Look at his career with Benetton. Prior to Schumi joining them, they had racked up an unastonishing 4 wins. Schumacher managed an incredible 19 wins in his 4 year stint with them, and when he left? They became a mediocre, midfield team once more. How many more races did they win? One.

As for his Ferrari career, he wasn't in the fastest car until 2001/2002-ish. The Mclaren was faster but not as reliable. Yet he managed to win still, he won 4 of his titles (the majority) in a car that was not dominant. Especially 2003.

Need further proof that Schumacher is superhuman? 2006. After a poor 2005 he made a determined fightback (despite knowing of his forced retirement being imminent even at the beginning of the season) and, in a slower car, managed to outrace Alonso - who is widely regarded as one of the best drivers of all time, certainly of the 21st century. If it wasn't for a mechan

I hope the haters are at least consistent and also hate on Senna, and Jacques Villeneuve, who drove off a rival recently.

Totally agree with the Benetton and Ferrari success. When he was there they went good, when he left they slipped back.

"and as for 94 he absolutely deserved the title, fending off Hill in the superior Williams " ??? this above comment by diablo boy is totally wrong. Schumacher deliberately DROVE INTO HILL as his Benetton car was crippled . He DROVE INTO Villeneuve the following year , he PARKED HIS CAR DELIBERATELY at Monaco to stop Alonso getting pole . HE ALMOST DROVE BARRICHELLO INTO the wall more recently, there are many other instances . he drove into the back of Coulthard at a wet Spa and went angrily afterwards , blaming Coulthard . Schumi is a very soiled piece of goods

If it wasn't for a mechanical failure (engine blow up) in Suzuka Schumi would have almost certainly won an 8th title. Now what was that about him only being able to win in the best car?

as for RC 45 - Senna did worse than Schumacher has done - he ploughed straight into the back of Prost in '91 to win the title which was absolutely pathetic. Do people let that cloud the apparently perfect racing ability of Senna? No. So why on earth should Schumacher be any different just because he's been more successful and had less incidents?
