    Oh...heck yeah. I loved Schumacher....I hope he destroys the competition. Lewis Hamilton is probably my current favorite (since Schumacher left)...I just wish it was Hamilton's "it" year like last year. If Hamilton performs like he did this past weekend and Schumacher can drive the 2009 Ferrari like he used to with his own, it should be for an interesting few races.
     
  3. Yup.

    My interest in F1 was just reborn.
     
  4. I think it will be great!

    This will be awesome. I have never been the biggest fan, but I acknowledge his greatness, and would actually like to see him kick the tail out of some of these kids.

    The last time I watched Formula 1 racing was in the era of Alain Prost and Aryton Senna (who died in a crash).

    Am I old? :confused:

    Raikonen was slowly doing better

    Hamilton winning at Hungary is a surprise

    I haven't been able to watch the ones sitting on my DVR
     
  10. This is great news, makes the wife happy. I know he is testing, but I wonder if his competition skills are rusty, guess we will find out soon, trials should be interesting. If it rains, everyone might as quit and let Schui have it, but Hamilton drives pretty well in the wet. Wonder what they will pay him, he was getting over a million and 1/2 when he quit.
     
  11. I heard on BBC a while ago that BMW is pulling out at the end of this season because of money.

    Well, they aren't doing so well anyways.. lol

    There was rumors of alot of the car manf breaking off F1 and making their own race league

    Vettel did pretty well in the last wet race too O_O
     
  13. That would Be a shock, could expect it from some other owners, but a manufacture, heck I know the economy is tough, but that seems rather drastic.

    Well that is all settled, mostly just pressure and posturing.
     
  14. You? old? sheee... Nikki Lauda, Jody schecter, Jacky Ickx... Oh my.

    I can remember Juan Manuel Fangio because I always liked the name :smile:, and Jim Clark in his new-fangled rear-engined Lotus at Indy, as well as Phil Hill and Stirlling Moss (met Stirling once a long time ago).

    It will be interesting to see the long-term effect of the rules changes to make racing more affordable.

    Regards,
    John

    This is terrible news. I certainly hope that Massa recovers nicely, but I have never liked the red cars, and I certainly never liked Schumacher. Any other team in this position would give a young driver a shot to move up, considering there is no way that Ferrari can win the Constructor's and I am fairly certain that even if Schu won every single race from Valencia onwards, it would still be mathematically impossible to win the championship. Schumacher made F1 boring. I am not denying that he wasn't great, he certainly was. It was just dull. There wasn't much point in watching.

    How great would it be if Schu came out winning out the season.. not saying the title, just the rest of the races.

    Ferrari's far superior car made F1 boring.

    The last 2 years of Schumacher's career were awesome to watch, when McLaren and Renault finally had cars as good as Ferrari, and what happened then - Alonso wiping the floor with Schumi, 2 years non stop.. including one of the greatest races of all time, when Alonso lapped Schumacher in the wet condition. I wish I had taped that race.
