    "We’re talking about a man that was more than a driver"
    True I guess: I had the chance to talk to Todt in the early days of their collaboration, and he told me that MS was special in the sense that he never stopped working, analysing data on his laptop the evening, unlike other drivers. (by that time, I think today's drivers grow with data analysis in mind)

    Some people inovate - others follow :)
    That is why he was so good and different.

    Maybe because he was my childhood but everytime he raced/defended - he had my heart pumping. None does that to me these days (in terms of the drivers)

    No thanks to DRS - these days you know what to expect.

    Great article.
    He was one of my heroes too.
    Some people thought his dominance was boring but I for one find beauty in his laps. So smooth, second to none.
    Keep fighting Micheal.

    Jimmy. Thank you so much mate. I’m a huge Michael Schumacher fan and this article was so spot on. I’ve repeated much of what you stated to my friends and family many a time when talking about Schumi. :cool: Suzuka 06, I still find that race difficult to digest to this very day :indiff: but that’s F1 some times, all this Schumacher content all week is a Schumi fans dream come true. :bowdown:
    Cheers from Australia:cheers:

    Rumour is, the only thing keeping him alive is legal arguments over a vast fortune.

    If it was you or me, we'd have been long gone by now.

    The sheer respect the media/paparazzi has for the privacy surrounding his condition is admirable. He is one of the bigggest icons in F1.

    His reign was also marked with one of the most boring periods in the F1, but that wasnt solely Michael's fault.

    Been following MSC since 2002, very sad what happened that day in 2013. I still remember reading the news and hoping things can get better, but with each passing day that seems unlikely. Brain trauma is a terrible thing and if MSC can speak I would think that he would've liked to go immediately instead of being in his current state.

    Personally, what I liked most about him isn't his speed, or racecraft, or work ethic or any of that stuff. It's the never give up, win-or-lose together as a team attitude. Even if other drivers may be faster, no one has such a bigger than life aura and charisma than MSC.

    Great read. I have been a huge Schumi fan since somewhere around '93 or '94. I would have been around 12 at the time. TBF, I have not enjoyed F1 as much as I did when he was racing either. He has always been, in my eyes, the greatest in my life. The man dominated in the rain. You always knew when he was getting ready to pit. He would throw down 2 blazing fast laps. All those years, he never lost sight of what was important either. Every win he would give that double fist pump in pure excitement. It hit me when I heard the news of his skiing accident. I will always be a Schumi fan and he will always be my GOAT!

    You're probably wrong on that one, it was just reported a couple weeks ago that he's no longer bedridden or intubated (hooked up to tubes). And apparently he may be heading to a specialist clinic in Texas soon.

    Ross Brawn is optimistic.
