Quite simply put - Yes he will be replaced. He's methodical and it's this trait that can be seen in other drivers to come. However, his unsportsman-like behaviour is probably something that will be repeated again by whoever in the future of F1 too. These two traits allowed this man become the illusion he is in statistical terms - so it's those of you that look at how many races he won, world championships etc. that rate him no more than genius. In reality, if you took all that away - you're left with a very unsportsman-like character. It's this lack of compassion he had that left him slightly less human. And therefore, it is this that knocks him off the top spot. Those that see no fundamental faults in this man, are in denial, and therefore hold similar flaws to your idle - Michael Shumacher.
