DAMN YOU SCHUMACHERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!
*whew* I feel better now!
:D

I'm tired of hearing about how motorsports fans will look back on this period with fondness, for being able to watch the greatest driver ever.....I confess, I just find it annoying.
:shrug:

Is he brilliant? Yes.
Am I tired of him winning all the time? YES!

1. Will he retire already??? I'm getting sick of this.
Formula One hasn't been exciting in years. I love the sport and have done since I was a child rooting on James Hunt and Ronnie Petersson--but F1 is a shadow of its former self. How sad.

4. I confess I'm torn
I don't think Michael should have to retire to make F1 more interesting. After all, it would be expected that he has the right to go out and try to win every race. And as long as he is capable and has the fire and drive in him.....who am I to say he shouldn't give it a try?

It's just frustrating that the Gods seem to smile on him and he just magically has circumstances working in his favor 99% of the time.

He insists that it's all due to the hard work of Ferrari, and I'm sure they do work hard. But ALL the teams work just as hard I'm sure.

I just have to wonder, did they sell their souls to the devil or something?

Bernie on the other hand, is a big jerk and I think he truly is running F1 into the ground. His arrogance and delusions of godhead are seriously annoying.

2. I agree
Schumacher has effectively taken away the entertainment left in F1 racing.

Today in sports really sucked: seeing it happen to one event is bad; seeing it happen to two is horrible.

6. I gave up F1 long ago
When Bernie and ESPN couldn't come to terms. Besides, racing is much more fun as a participant than an observer.

Grand Prix Legends still going strong after 6 years

9. He is good though
But I have to admit, I zoned out after Kimi lost the rear wing element.

I'm tired of Schummi winning, too. Makes me miss Senna even more.

10. Senna at least had that Latin madness.
Schumi is too much of a machine, a la "The Professor" Alain Prost. I think Montoya may be the one to inherit Senna's mantle.
