    Can Schumacher ever be replaced?

    He was by far the best driver in the world and it showed. Very few drivers could match his car setup skills or awesome driving skills which is why no-one came close to competing for the championship for so many years! Instead they chose to complain and appeal and throw their toys out of the pushchair when he did win.

    There is someone who may be able to replace him when it comes to the skills needed to win in the top level of motor racing and he is new to the formula. I am of course talking about Lewis Hamilton. I have had the pleasure of watching Lewis since he was racing cadet karts around the P.F.International circuit and have been amazed at the lads pure talent. When you have tried racing for yourself and think you are pretty good at it it is quite astounding when someone of such talent as Lewis shows just what is required to win and keep on winning.

    If I was a gambling man I would certainly put £10 on Lewis to win the F1 title this year let alone next year. He is someone I take great pleasure from watching and wishing I could be as good as him!

    Go Lewis!!

    • No,i just believe he is very over rated and other champion are under rated this is not helped by the press.
      It used to be the sport of gentlemen and he is just a cheat don't think fangio,prost,piquet,lauda,hill,stewart,clark ever parked there car in monaco to hamper everybody else during qualifying.
      So to me his records don't mean a thing it's not what you do but the way that you did it and that put him dodgy just to put it mildly.

      • i have followd shumi's rise through the field since he started with much intrest,i personaly at first was not a fan,i thought he was arrogent even cocky as senna was!i firmly beleve now after watching,lisening,even in sum way studing him+his driving ability i personaly think he is a true genius,has every one forgotton how senna pushed prost of the track?senna was a genius as shumi but also a bully!what would people think of senna if the roles were reversed i wonder?senna the so called cheat+shumi the bully!seems to me that its more to do with shumi being german?if shumi did what he did but was brasilian would he be god?shumi is human like all of us.

      • why would one want to replace him. there was one Babe Ruth, one Jim Thorpe, one Wilt Chamberlain, one Pele. These are the best of the best to name just a few. Let's not fortget that he had the best car, Ferrari.

      • You are so right!!! Schumacher wasn't a sportsman, he was just a talented charlatan!! Many people will remember his dirty tricks and this is why he cannot be the NR 1 figure in the history of Formula 1!

        And Senna never did.

        Oh except in 1990 at Japan when he intentionally drove Prost off the road at 140mph.

      • I believe the word you are looking for is "schumol" Schumi, this what people used to call him back in Germany.

        Regardless of what he did he got punished for it and didn't gain any benefit from parking his car in Monaco. So saying that all his records don't mean a thing to you just proves your inability to judge drivers without being biased.

        And yes Schumi is bit overrated but even though is has done some uncanny things on track, he still has the championships to prove that he is a great driver.

        It is simply impossible to have all the records he has by cheating, especially with the media.
        Great sportsman out there have had their careers ruined by the media so if this was the case with Schumi he definitely would not have had all those records.

        Everyone remembers how the media reacted when Schumi parked his car in Monaco... need I say more?

    • You know something lad, it was completley obvious that you were from the UK before you even wrote it lol..Your post was clearly all over Hamiltons jock strap!! And here's a tissue, wipe your mouth!!!

    • He was by far the best driver in the world and it showed. Very few drivers could match his car setup skills or awesome driving skills.

      How do we know he was the best driver in the World? He never competed against the likes of Gil De Ferran, Jeff Gordon, Sam Hornish. He was the best of his era in F1 that is all. He to classed as the best in the world of his era he needed to have raced against other champions and all types of paved circuits.

    • YES he can be replaced in a racer called Lewis Hamilton !! and hes a Brit so come on Jenson catch him up !!
