While many questioned his on-track ethics, no one can deny that he has made the sport of formula one interesting. While most of the F1 drivers today rely more on their cars to win, for schumacher it has always been a combination of skills, talent and the performance of his car. He had the ability to bring out the best out of an underperforming car and no other driver not even his current championship rival can do that. They always say that the FIA always favored ferrari and Schumacher then how come drastic rule changes were implemented in 2005 just to satisfy the other F1 teams?! They relied on these changes just to get equal with Ferrari when in fact they should blame themselves for not doing their job. What do you think?

Phil has it right no matter what's said after it. People who dislike drivers always find fault in them, especially if they happen to be up against their favorite driver. A driver who doesn't take advantage of any situation to give them an edge ,or better yet some points, is not fulfilling their contract as a driver. They aren't hired for millions to tour around for our amusement. They are paid to WIN!!

I personally enjoyed watching M.S. race as much as I enjoyed Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart. I like to compare M.S. and J.S. I don't think Ayrton was in the same league as those two.
