This guy is done,Shumacher ended many careers, montoya, jack, just to name a few. I know its hard to swallow. But lets get real look at the numbers. Now everyone has a target on Shumy's back. I don't know what the future holds but I do know he was many times better then most.

Hey.Redneck Bob from Atlanta ... you are indeed a Redneck.
More so, you're a loser and a moron, not Villeneuve.
Scumacher is a hypocrit and an opportunist. Nothing more.
Scumacher stole one of Hill's titles, he pretty much pissed on Ferarri (the team that made him a world champion) when they needed him most, whinning that 'Oh I have back pains', and signing with another team (not even 3 months later!!).
Hi's true character showed through in 1997 on the track at Herez when he hit Villeneuve, purposefully trying to make him quit (the newspapers were right in saying he should have been TAKEN TO COURT for that crime).
He did the same thing with Hill in 1994 at Adelaide (his maneuvre actually working that time), and accepting the title (like a HYPOCRIT) that belonged to the Williams team, and Senna's, dead at Imola that very same season.
At Spa Franchorchamps , he got into a fight with Culthard, even though it was exclusively Scumacher's fault.
Schumacher isn't great. Ferarri money is great, Ros Brawn's GENIUS is great (proof is Brawn GP of last year), the Ferarri car is great! The racing strategy is a team effort first of all and then the driver's, not the other way around.
So don't praise that hypocrit Schumacher, because it wont hold up with the ones who have been watching F1 Racing for the past 20 years.
In any case, World Rally Championships rules.
I just wanted to give you a piece of my mind.
Last of all, I want to demonstrate to you that you really are a redneck. I come from ROMANIA, a country that you americans categorize as a third world country. I know where ATLANTA is ... the question is, do YOU know where ZALAU is?

hey you commie SOB, where the f*** is Herez ... get your facts straight you dumbass, it's Jerez .. for someone professing to have watched F1 for 20 years you really should have known that.
At Spa he got into a fight with who ... Culthard ... good grief man get your stories straight, it's Coulthard and the funny thing is that Coulthard finally admitted last year that the get together between him and Schumacher was not Schumie's fault, it was his .. Get your damned facts straight.
Now about the rest, I go over this everytime, but it still amazes me that idiots like you just don't get it. When Schumacher joined ferrari they were shite, they had won 3 races in 5 yrs. Schumie brought two great F1 men with him from Benetton, Ross who you sound like you have heard of and a bloke named Rory Byrne. Ever heard of him? Along with Todt the 4 of them and the Ferrari team put together a car that became the most dominant in F1 history. Schumie did not sit his ass down in the best car on the grid, he earned it, he helped develop it. Alain Prost (Ever heard of him) has said that what Schumie did for ferrari was his greatest feat ever. Now here it the kicker, during his reign as champion in a car he helped develop, Ferrari showed double digit growth year after year ...now I know the ideas of capitalism and profit are hard for a commie like you to understand, but in the end what it means is that while Schumie drove for ferrari, they sold mors cars than ever before. You reckon he pissed on ferrari, sorry to say the day Luca De Montezemolla sold Schumie out by forcing him to retire so they could put the drunk in the gorilla suit in a ferrari, they sold Schumie out. Typical brain dead moron, you love to only tell one side of the story hey. Sad though, you've only been watching F1 for 20 years, one day you'll wake up junior and understand that to me that makes you a rookie fan.
Now you reckon MS stole the WDC from Hill, ha ha and you reckon he stole William's title and Senna's in 1994. newsflash asshole, Frank Williams and his crap team murdered Senna, but before we go giving accolades to Mr Senna, keep in mind that the first few races leading up to Imola, Senna had failed to score and points and Schumie was kicking his ass. But hey if you want to blame anyone or charge anyone, send the wheel chair jockey to Siberia.
I am impressed you know about Atlanta, kind of difficult not to know about it, with a population of 4+ million it's not the tiny little town you live in. Which brings me to another point, lets compare apples with apples. maybe you should have asked me if I knew anything about Bucharest? While I don't know much about Zalau I do know it is in the northwest part of Romania in Transylvania if I am not mistaken. Other than that I don't know much about it, you ever heard of Dacula, or Braselton, or Winder. Apples with Apples sunshine ...
And before you try insult me, just because I live in the USA does not automatically make me an American ... maybe you prefer to be called a third world country because you can feel sorry for yourself. Just for the record, I am originally from a third world country, but I decided I wanted a better life for my family and I, and we had the balls to go for it ... what's your excuse ...

Bob you're the only one that actually believes the Bullshyte you spew!You give rednecks a bad name being that you're really a SouthAfrican refugee hiding out in Atlanta. How's it feel to have been fired by that Black dude that makes the custom makarapas for the world cup teams? Keep your chin up, with a little more upgrading you'll just be considered an assh0le!

Bob.... wow Bob...

Schumi is good...possibly great. But not without his flaws and dirty tactics. Senna.... same story... Just ask Prost.

JV, far better than you give him credit for. Schumi...fast? Yes.... Boring and a tad arrogant? Yes...

JV like a few others suffered in their F1 careers because they tell it like it is and have no desire to corporate promo-bots.

In equal cars against JV, about a toss up with a slight edge to Schumi? maybe....

Any of *sswipes that don't like the USA can stay the hell out or leave if you're here and the real Americans won't miss you a damn bit. At America's worst, it's still the damn best thing going on this planet. Now if you to want to find out how good these little F1 pricks you're arguing about are, send their sorry ass on over to NASCAR to TRY to drive a real race car for a change. Of course, don't count on them being here too long. The good ole boys in NASCAR have a habit of handing their *ss back to them and sending them home. Hey, you can have Speed and Montoya back anytime, they're just wasting air here.

hey Real truth, I have stated that over and over that when JV began his career he was a really good driver, I'll never take that away from him. But he should have stayed in the USA going around and around. His biggest mistake was to rely on his great father's name to secure a drive. He was hoping he would be an automatic choice for Ferrari, and when they signed Barachello to replace Irvine at Ferrari in 2000, JV could not handle it. He was shattered and the only way he could fight was to make a fool of himself by going after Schumie in a verbal assault.

As for the equal car thing, you have to understand that in 1997 the Ferrari was shite, a little better than the pig of a car of '96 (as described by Alain Prost), but the fact that Jack was in the far superior Williams was in itself an amazing feat that Schumie came so close to winning the WDC. Also keep in mind that maybe in a equal car they would be close, but let's not forget that Schumie was instrumental in taking the Ferrari the amazing heights and victories it did, he was not simply handed a winning car, he spent the first 4 years at ferrari building it up, until finally they put together something so superior it was amazing. Now we can all agree that Barachello is a very good driver, yet in the same car, equal equipment he was no where close to the performance and pace of Schumie, maybe in the odd race tactics and team orders were in play, but in most situations Schumie just out drove, out performed and out strategized even his own teammate in the same car ... and in many ways the same thing will happen if you put JV and MS in exact cars ... for sure Jack is a winner ... but Mike, well he's a master ...

JV's name might have turned a head or opened the odd door early on, but he made his own way through CART and F1. His only failing as a driver was trusting his manager Craig Pollock who was an idiot.

F1 is unforgiving and has a short memory.

As for MS, he helped pull Ferrari up. MS has that last little bit that he uses to pull a team forward. But... I stand by my statement that he didn't do it all fair-n-square
-team-tactics
-team-orders
-Monaco
-banging into JV's car and not just facing up to a mistake (intentional/accidental) I don't care, it was his doing
-to name a few

MS is good, but his chink in his armor is his character. When the chips are down and he is desperate to win. He has shown a fairly pronounced character flaw in that area.

hey real truth, keep in mind he came into F1 when that type of racing was front and center ... Prost bashing into Senna to win a WDC, and a year later Senna banging into Prost to win a WDC ... so he was thrown into the proverbial shark tank and had to swim or be eaten. Sadly when Schumie tried it, a new generation of drivers had arrived, Hill, Jack and the likes of Coulthard, and they were horrified that the German did things like that. The one bloke who fought back was JPM, and they had some royal scraps through the years. Keep in mind too that until that dreaded season in 2002 when Ferrari's team bosses Jean Todt and Ross brawn ordered Barachello to move aside in Austria, team orders were a huge part of F1, so again it was nothing illegal. But I agree it left a bad taste in many folk's mouths. Keep in mind too that Schumie was DQed from the entire 1997 season for his JV crash tactics, something that had never been done before, and really the humiliation was enough, there was no need to apologize, JV was champ and Schumie was embarrassed. A couple of years later David Coulthard launched a huge attack on Schumie for supposedly crashing into DC in the rain at Spa, Belgium 1998. Only in 2009 did DC finally come out and tell the F1 world the crash was not Schumie's fault, but in fact his own. But for 10 odd years DC constantly went after the Schu for that incident .... In many ways Schumie was arrogant, but because of his success and awesome driving skills, he had a huge target on his back ... really the way he handled it all was pretty good to be honest ... if it was me they would all have been called Dumbasses long ago, or as my best mate Muck calls me ... fuckwits .... ha ha

hey real truth, the point I was trying to make is summed up in this report from The Independent, Monday September 2, 2002 .......

"... Mansell, the world champion in 1992, when he won nine rounds of the campaign, left early in a Belgian Grand Prix that became the latest landmark in Schumacher's unprecedented odyssey.

Three times Schumacher had equalled the Briton's achievement, but yesterday he eclipsed it, dominating the race with an exhibition of his mastery at this, the most revered circuit of them all. Rubens Barrichello again confirmed the superiority of the Ferrari, taking second place comfortably ahead of his closest rival for runner-up position in the championship, Juan Pablo Montoya, in a Williams-BMW.

However, it was Schumacher's comprehensive defeat of his team-mate which provided the significant gauge of the German's performance. He was a second a lap quicker than Barrichello until he backed off in the closing stages to spare his machinery the kind of stress that took a heavy toll on much of the field ..."

Sure, F1 would be better off with another no name pay driver. That is what F1 is all about these days

Nick Heidfeld surely would have been a better pick for this team rather than Chandhok, but unfortunately he has the money, which as you know many new forming teams need.

Apparently you are not that familiar with the sport or the drivers. So I won't bother to waste my time with you. You are likely more at home sitting back swilling on Budweiser and watching NASCRAP. Yea a lot of talent there. ROFLMAO!
