See there Lewis? This is what SUCCESSFUL Formula One drivers do. They wear the stupid hats and get paid royally for doing so. Looks like you'll be missing out on the 60 million Schumi will have made for wearing the ugly hat all these years.
But wait, I've looked at the Mercedes team hat only Nico has been wearing and I thought it was a nice hat. What the hell is wrong with you? You aren't gonna wind up like one of your heros, Mike Tyson, and living in a cardboard box a few years after you retire are you?

@Ptolemy

He made his millions with the GQ photoshoot. I mean. most people would want 100 million for looking like a complete bellend in a mag.

You appear to be arguing with yourself. Was a post deleted?

I've watched Michael since the mid nineties and he has been awesome, taking Hill all the all the way at Adelaide in 94 with Hill driving the superior Newey Williams, and then to take Ross and Byrne to Ferrari and dominate for a few years showed Kudos.

So now he is enjoying himself in his new ambassador role and making lots of money good luck to him.

But why did he have to make a return in 2010 as I feel it has damaged his credibility slightly and maybe the the class of 2010 to 2012 was of a different league to those of the era of Irvine,Coulthard,Herbert etc..

I once thought he was the best of all time but im not so sure now and it has really hurt what Nico did to him.

@fastguy - the old cliche that you are only as good as your last race is silly. There is no denying that he had some terrible luck upon his return including some questionable penalties given by former rivals. It was silly for people expect him to be better than he was when he retired the fist time. He was already losing his dominance then.
