  1. This is ONLY champion who has so many different opinions about his spotmanship. Nobody doubt Alan Prost or Niki Lauda on their sportmanship when they were winning their races. Need I say more?

  2. @King

    Oh Puhleez!

    Probably you are not aware about the difference between Prost , Lauda etc. and the sheer dominance shown by Michael. Hence the difference , More successful a man , more the no. of critics and enemies.

  3. there should be a m schumacher dvd going through all his races, achivments and contravercy with hidden cameras etc when he went 2 hit coulthard and off the track analysis both critical and his views, but be made as a un biost view but end it with him being the best there ever will be

  4. legend.. make a dvd

  5. Shumi is the best there was and ever will be….people need to stop hating and appreciate the enormity of his contribution to the sport

  6. How can someone hate michael schumacher it must be because he/she is very anti german, i have really i hate for persons like that, dont they realize michael is a great iconic legend for petes sake have respect, forget what happened in the wars 1 and 2 not all germans are like the war soliders. i will never forget michael he has brightened my weekends and now i watch formula 1 still but the special spark is gone, formula 1 is now to boring.
