It may very well be best car but it takes the driver to put lots of input and testing into making that car the best. Some cars are never the best despite having lots of money. It takes a very good driver to develop a car into something that will take him to the line first..
I thought I mentioned that. Constructor, driver and luck there is not more.
You only need look back at Mclaren Mercedes to see that they could do nothing through the 2000s because Kimi stinks as a driver and developer of the car. The car Lewis won the championship in was mostly a Ferrari in silver and black.
Ferrari has never been really good at building a car and developing it to the point that it could win consistantly until Mike came along. He basically set up a team within a team to do that. The reason why Ferrari could and wont do much without a man like Michael Schumacher is because Italians have a way of doing things that that are not team oriented. Its hard for me to say this because I am Italian but its just the way it is. If it were not for Michael then this site and the other one wouldnt even exist because he created a winning team where there was only doom ahead. He helped develop and stylize the road cars we drive today.
not team oriented. MS is god. Ferrari never could? one needs to re-read history...it didn't start with Michael, he would be the first to admit that.
Now getting back to wether he made the right decision or not to come back. Its really none of our business. Michael couldnt give a crap what we think. He is back doing what he wants to do because HE wants to do that. Maybe he likes racing. Hes done it all of his life and its not easy to just stop the addrenelene(sp) rush.
No one asked if Michael cares what we think, the question is what we think. Yes, he has every right to enter as much as Dunno does in the opposite manner. IF someone wants, respects them or whatever, you are in: Done.
Of course he likes or should like racing. that is not even part of the original question. Matter of fact it is a given he likes if not loves it, and I might add, to his detriment. That is what I think and still do. I believe the field will need to watch his superior ability and make sure the ol' guy is on his bead....albeit only three years aged.
Anyone who thinks that a 41 year old in the shape that he is in is finished really has been sitting on the couch too long eating bags of chips and drinking too much soda. Oh yes thats the American way but not the rest of the world.
Don't know where this generalization or smack comes from but if Lance Armstrong can win as many as he did without nuts, I am banking on MS being in the game too. God, I hate chips and soda, so where do I fit?
And listen guy, not every American slaps a stars and bars on his pickup and is not aware of the rest of the world.
Geesch, next you be saying all Canadians are beer swizling eh' parratotics [which of course we all know they are
LOOK, we know you like MS as I, but sweeping everything aside and generalizing others for not throwing palm branches under foot to his Pumas won't make it so. He a man and I believe he could exhibit, human qualities.
I still feel, and you can tag me after next season, that he'll be out of the game, unless someone is paying him to break the remaining record of Longest Aged Driver. Drivers rarely get past a serious injury and he is about too old to be pushing those limits: My jury is still out if he should have returned...season is young and we will see.
