rubbens is old and he stayed on and was winning with brawn so no age related stuff should even be said half his stats would be gone if the safety was not so bad and the cars were able to get faster each year like they used too.
so his stats mean nowt to me.but when he first retired it was showing he was not in a dominent car so if he carried on he would keep losing hence the ritirement 5 title on the trot then nothing and nothing again.
coming back just shown he is not as good as his stats no way near else if he was this most amazing driver he would be at least with or should be beyond alonso, kimi who he used to race against. that was the bench mark of his come back and mine for his abilty.
take away all the contraversy off his stats and you have a good driver thats it nowt more nowt less.
lmao at his return to prove what i thought.
bye bye

Because his first "retirement" was a cynical ploy,and the plot failed,why all this brouhaha about his SECOND retirement?, it's like a damp squib, lets hope it fizzles out very quickly and let us move on in F1 to some exciting racing without the deadwood hasbeen.

I was not a Schumacher fan when he was on his winning years nor am I now, but I have to admitt that he is a great driver, for me one of 7 greatest alongside Fangio, Clark, Stewart, Lauda, Senna and Prost. His figures speak for themselves: 7 F1 titles (as much as Alonso - 2, Vettel - 2, Button - 1, Hamilton - 1, Raikkonen - 1 put together) 302 GP's started, 91 wins, 68 poles, winning rate: 0.301 (Stewart: 0.270, Prost: 0.255, Senna: 0.253. Only Jim Clark (0.347), Ascari (0.406) and Fangio (0.451) have a higher winning rate, although in those years there were significantly fewer races per season. So, as he draws the curtain on his ilustrious career I can only say: Thank you Mr.Schumacher and good luck!

Or he could become a commentator. It would be amusing (no not really) to see the comments on here that he should keep his opinion to himself - the old retired hack! By people who have been world champion at nothing, yet when they put their "facts" forward from their keyboards so adamantly, use their many years of watching as proof of their expertise when decrying the opinions of those that actually have been there - done that at the top level, as well as any other keyboard jockey with their own differing opinion.

Schumi you were not my favourite, but you Are "One of" the greats. Enjoy retirement with dignity and thanks for your contribution. It will be referred to often and I'm sure much debated for years+ to come. You can only win in the era of your peers, and you did that!

You will be missed by mant F-1 fans. You brought a sense of dignity to a sport that has a lot of wimpering adolesents. PLEASE stay in the loop and do commentaries or advise to the drivers that need help how to take corners at various circuits.You and Kimi were always a thrill to watch in the early days.
