Don't Retire

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.

  1. I agree with that, spot on.

  2. I think I’m going to have to disagree with you on this one. Obviously now he’s announced his retirement, so I’m commenting after the fact rather then before it, however, I’m not sad to see him gone. I think he’s been pretty lucky throughout his career to almost always be in the team that at least as the capability of winning the world championship, perhaps with the exception of last year. His underhand tactics over the last 12-13 years may have won him 7 world championships but they haven’t earnt my respect. Lets hope next season will be a 3 team race for the championship, Kimi in a Ferrari, Alonso in the McLaren, (and less likely) Button in the Honda. I don’t think either of the Renault drivers have the capability to win the world championship even if the Renault is the best car next year. As for 2006, I hope Alonso wraps up another well deserved title and Schumacher leaves with his tail between his legs.

  3. So here’s some cheating I’ve done earlier:

    Hill vs Schumacher

    Villeneuve vs Schumacher

    Here’s one that failed:
    Hakkinen vs Schumacher

  4. ...and here’s another disgraceful bit of driving by Schumacher which did “work” –

    Schuey, needing victory to win the second leg of the two-part Macau F3 event, simply brake-tested Mika and drove on to take victory. I’ll miss hating him, but the sport as a sport is better off without him.
