Hide your hatred richard, its not good for your health. Racing incidents happen all the time. All drivers with no exceptions do that and when you're at the tale during a race and you see an opportunity (safe car) chances are that you're going to take some "risks". All of us saw Hammi at the Monaco GP, he slammed everyone in that race with minimal penalty. You have to see in both eyes my friend.

aww c'mon richard lol, after Romain Grosjean, Schumacher has completed the fewest racing laps this year, he generally has looked out for the team despite the numerous failures on there part, they just kinda left him high and dry after Singapore though.

I completely agree. The amount of failures on Schumacher's car this year is laughable.

He has had horrible luck, I believe if he had Rosberg's reliability he's be ahead of him in the points as he's beaten him in 6 out of the 7 races they've both finished.

Merc's return to F1 has been dismall and a half hearted effort at best. Buying the Brawn team which was on a road to nowhere has been nothing short of a catastrophe. Frankly i'd rather own a Tata than a Merc these days. @richard - They should have given him a car that runs in the front, then he wouldn't have been in a position to rear-end anyone.

Excuse me, Schummi has crashed so many times during free practice than any other driver that I know. When he took over from Jean Alesi back in 1996, it was the car not the driver as well, but thats life you are a piece of meat one day you are going to turn green, his mistake was he should have left Ferrari the moment they wanted to move him upstairs into a consultant role, that was the momemnt his career was screwed.

Richard you really do talk such a load of cr4p you old codger.

The report is about the chassis, and its comparative competitiveness in relation to the others teams, what has Schumacher re-ending another car, or having multiple accidents got to do with this? I can see where people are getting their ideas of you from now. Incidentally, is there any team or driver you do like? Your bitterness is clearly visible and it must destroy you as you have to rubbish the most successful sports man of any profession, not just F1.

Tell me Richard, what success have you had in life? I expect that will be a short reply!

nube. far more than you ever dream of having, including motorsport!

it was not the car that caused schumis crashes. if it was, then nico would have had the same accidents. or are you saying that nico is far superior in car control to schumi?

it is nothing about hate,as i do actually admire schumi for what he has done, but he must take a certain amount of blame for the cars poor results.

oh and by the way, most successful sportsman of any profession? i dont know what standard you are using, but in motor sport, i think that loeb beats him hands down!
