Cool stuff Mt
Yeah, it's a bummer.. though I expected it more or less. But I wanted him to drive one more year, alongside Kimi.. and I wanted him to drive one more time at Spa, as they didn't drive there the last few years but will again next season. The greatest track ever, also the first track he drove on, the track where he got his first win and the only track I've ever been to. I saw him win there 2001. It was awesome. As the last three races are China, Japan and Brazil I don't have a chance anymore to see him racing live.
For the first time since 84 I will be without a driver I'm really cheering for.
I like several drivers, but none of them will be able to replace him. I think I'll be on Kimi's side. And I will certainly support the remaining German drivers, especially Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld and to a much lesser degree Ralf Schumacher. Sebastian Vettel, who was a BMW test driver the last two Fridays on racing weekends seems to have a lot of potential.
Nico will be my favorite though.
Next year will also be exciting as Lewis Hamilton , the new GP2 champion will probably enter F1 with McLaren Mercedes. An awesome talent.. add to that the first ever black driver in F1. Will he be the Tiger Woods (who actually said that Michael Schumacher is the best active athlete in the world
) of racing ?
Heikki Kovalainen is also a great talent, will race for Renault next year. What's up with those Finns? Racing talent seems to be in their genes.
And then Nelson Piquet Jr. should also enter F1 soon. He's the son of former 3 time champion Nelson Piquet. I didn't like his father, and I don't like him either. He will be my next driver to absolutely root against
Actually I think I could even start to hate him. Don't know why, but maybe because I have the impression that he's the ultimate spoiled brat.
