Jose, I'll always give credit where it's due.
As for Joe Frazier, one of my sporting heros, His performances in the ring and his actions as a man deserved far more respect, money, fame, adulation and respect in later life than he received.

well if hes that good tell me y he can not keep up with the drivers he used to race against now then he used to be infront of them but not now ???
just praises ferrai more now to me.
alsonso is still alonso and kimi is still kimi and so on they all way better than he is in similar cars now.
keep it real.
with his past i expect of him to be infront of all the drivers he used to race against with his wonderful ferrari.
he proved 1 thing to me he aint special at all he just lucky to be in the right team at the right time.
rosberg well done for proving this even more.
after what he did to rubbens nearly stuffing him in the wall just reminded me how much i didnt like shuey.

Such a shame the merc wasn't more competitive, he might not be leaving if the results had been there.

Nice to read some mature and insightful comments from a driver for a change. No disrespect to their skills but most of the drivers have an awful lot of growing up to do and are as boring as the proverbial bat poo when they speak.

Bye Mike.

Great shame to see Schumi retiring although he has been outperformed by his teammate he never gave up and always tried his best in the Mercedes car. I was reading somewhere that he was long thinking of retiring apparently he said in all his years in F1 he would never have thought he would have seen the day that he would be overtaken on a track like Monaco and it is thought that this was the start of him thinking about retirement in 2011 although he got pole in 2012 it seemed the damage was done a year earlier, real shame.

He had everything to lose and not a lot to gain by the comeback. Good On him on giving it a crack. It has perhaps been a humbling experience for the most successful F1 driver of all time to re-enter the ring and expose his reputation all we onlooker critics. I respect him for doing it and think there is nothing to be gained by him carrying on any longer.
