• Mercedes GP will evaluate Michael Schumacher's future later this year

      This is rather interesting. Schumacher has been criticized heavily in his comeback as he is not performing as expected and outperformed routinely by 26 year old teammate Nico Rosberg. Schumacher is under contract for 3 years total which means he has another year if he wants it. The comments from Mercedes GP president Ross Brawn are a bit troubling though as he stated, "He has a three-year contract with Mercedes, and we are very happy with him. But if he feels that he doesn't want to do it anymore, then we need to talk about it. You can't force somebody to do something." We have no idea where those comments came from but perhaps Schumacher has lost some heart? Something definitely isn't right at Mercedes GP as Brawn also stated, "Perhaps the situation would be a little easier for Michael if he had a teammate who was not so incredibly strong. But both can learn many things from each other, and everyone is up to the challenge.

        Don't know about good sides of Schumacher, his 1994 title march is plagued with cheating by him and by his team Bennetton. What with the disappearing code to launch a car, removing filters from the refueling rig, etc. But sure give somebody a second chance, that expired in 1997 when he tried to do the same thing to Jacques, just doesn't leave a very good taste in your mouth. Then him hitting the pedestrian and cursing him out back in 2008.

        There's another driver I hated as equally or maybe even more than him was Nelson Piquet. Total scumbag, probably who Schumacher modeled himself after.

        No matter. I'm not his greatest fan also. But you can not deny he had his good sides. Yes there were better drivers.
        Mika Hakkinen for instance beat Schumacher when Schumacher was at the very top of his game.

        I still remember watching that pass to this day. My favorite driver on my favorite track.

        Mika Hakkinen was a great driver. It was sad to see him leave. I would of loved to see some more battles between them.

        Interesting discussion. But, you seem to take it personally. Scumbag ?? Did you know Nelson personally to make such a statement ???
