andy. there is little point in arguing with you, as you seem to be a little lacking in grand prix history. the w125 raced with 650 + bhp. figures not attained again until the turbo era. as i said, please do some research

Michael is the greatest driver of all time in Formula 1, there is no doubt about that. His record speaks for itself- 7 world titles in a sport where multiple titles are difficult, more than Prost, Senna & Fangio, 5 titles in a row- unprecidented, 91 grand prix wins- 50 more than the next nearest competitor, 68 poles. In addition to this in almost every season in his F1 career up to his first returement he was well in the hunt for the world title - remember he lost out to Villneuve (although admittedly his own fault) in 97, ran Hakinnen very close in 98, most probably would have won the title in 99 if not for his unfortunate accident breaking his leg at Siverstone. He also was in the hunt for the title in 2006 & showed his class in coming from near the back of the field in his final race to come 4th (with a breathtaking move on Kimmi). If that eccentric old fart Montezemelo didnt want him out I've no doubt he would have won more titles. He could easily have won up to 10 tiles if luck ha

I said when he came back it was a big mistake. I take no joy in it because he is one of the all time greats. I just wish sometimes these "old guys" would think before they leap. It usually never works out. He's just another jock who thought he could recapture past glory. Time is the ultimate equalizer.

Shumacher has always been my favourite driver since 93. But my favourites are 99 till 06, that would have to be the best yrs of driving for shui. everyone has to retire at somepoint in their life, but he choose now. I don't think shui is the oldest person to retire in the F1. It won't be the same without him. I think he is the sexest bloke on the F1 track and he is cute for his age.
