I’ve never been a Schumacher fan. I’ve always loved to hate him throughout the following battles: Hill vs. Schumacher, Villeneuve vs. Schumacher, Hakkinen vs. Schumacher. But what I can’t deny is the genius he is, watching a master at work makes this a very special time in history and I appreciate his prescence in Formula1 (and I will do even more when he has retired). Therefore I don’t want him to retire – he’s not slow and he’s not getting old.
I’m sure some other drivers like Kimi and Alonso would prefer him to be around. Only by having him in the sport will they get the chance to beat him! I don’t mind where Kimi ends up, he’ll drive the wheels off any thing he gets… and will win. I think Kimi and Schumacher will be the most competitive line up ever. And F1 Racing reported a possibility of Schumacher earning $1billion if he went to BMW. But obviously money is not a deciding factor for Schumacher. At the end of the day, life’s boring after F1, I can’t see what he would be doing outside F1. If he decides his family time is more important and its time to settle down, then I guess he may leave. We’ll find out later today I guess.
