I have to agree 100% with Bernie. In 2006, despite not winning the championship, he ended the year incredibly. Undeniably, he could have been the champion had his engine not expired in Japan, but his drive in Brazil was really a beautiful way to end his career: Started from 10th, moved upward before a deflated tyre, fought his way back to finish in 4th place with the fastest lap. I was in a hotel in Italy to watch the final race, and I was left in tears; I wasn't even a big Schumacher fan. It was a shame to see Michael return, it just went so poorly and, excluding his podium at Valencia, it was ultimately a failure.

I'd agree with Bernie. As a lifelong fan of the Schumachers (Michael and Ralf were my two favorite drivers in the early 2000s) if he wanted to race he should have done Le Mans or Indy or DTM. I suspect he may do one of those now, but his legacy is still hurt by his decision to come back.
However, some kid in 2050 will look in the World Almanac sports section and see
1994: Michael Schumacher
1995: Michael Schumacher
1996: Damon Hill
1997: Jacques Villeneuve
1998: Mika Haikkonen
1999: Mika Haikkonen
2000: Michael Schumacher
2001: Michael Schumacher
2002: Michael Schumacher
2003: Michael Schumacher
2004: Michael Schumacher
and think 'wow that Schumacher guy must have been a hell of a driver'
He was.

He was.

Schumacher's now doing karting with my beloved Tony Kart..technically. He's the official test driver there Very Happy

Also, who's Mika Haikkonen? Razz

Your a Tony Kart guy? I always raced Birels when I was karting. But Tony Kart makes a great kart.

Yeah, I drove TonyKarts initially because I liked the Green-White-Red, but later I bought them because they are so simple to set up.
