Struggling Schumacher won't cut short comeback

Jun 9, 2011 Full story: National Post 9

A Michael Schumacher has fallen flat on his face in his comeback. The seven-time world champion is almost a season and a half into his return to Formula One auto racing following a three-year retirement and has yet to be even a shadow of his former self.

Why is everyone onto schumacher's head? He is a great and would remain one. We should first see what problems he is facing and then criticize him. Mercedes should be able to give him a good car first. Even nico has struggled with this car which has reliability and performance issues. Agreed, Nico is a good driver and is neck and neck to schumacher but is not giving some great results either. So please wait, i guess till next season, for a better car and then pass these judgments.

Last year's problem were the tyres. This year it's the whole car.
When you say that "...EVEN nico has struggled...", are you implying or even admitting that Nico the better driver is?
Neck to neck is not exactly the truth when you look at the results.
But let's wait another year...for his final retirement.
I'm sure that he won't quit before his contract ends.

And again, you don't read, you don't understand. I don't expect that you can read between lines, but at least understand the statement that Schwulmacher won't quit before 2012...and I know that it's not egg on your brandnew Schwulmacher poster...
