    Can Schumacher ever be replaced?

    The answer is yes and yes. He will be replaced because history always throws up somebody who beats the old icons and yes Michael got away with much worst. As a disclosue I did meet him with his then fiance flying from Nice to London after the Monte Carlo race the year before he became world champion. I found him humble, charming and gracious but as time progressed I fear that just like most highly competitive people winning became all. Michael was no saint just an a very talented and competitive driver. Let him be remembered for that alone and the pleasure he gave in between the 'slips' such as in Adelaide!
