I dont know what do you mean :oh:

Dont take me serious, a lot of thing, that I write o say are just ironic...
Michael had sure many good drives, but Im not his fan or a really big formula one fan, so I cant remember any of his drives inb the past...

And Robert Kubica in Canada 2008... He has taken the chance, that was given and he also could second, no the winner... That was a good drive...
But this topic is about Michael Schumacher :oh:

He's hinting that Haidfeld gave the victory to Kubica.

Which is wrong, and nothing like Austria 2002.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

94 Spain with only 5th gear
98 Hungary I saw the race live from the last corner of the circuit, once he lost it and went out to the grass...that was a dramatic moment and great drive by him
05/06 San Marino
03 Indianapolis
96 Spain
99 Sepang
03 Canada with brake failure
etc.

I almost forgot Interlagos 06...that was terrific..Briatore made the sign of the cross when Schumi tried to overtake Fisichella :) and finally he caught him and Raikkonen too...

yeah....a very dramatic race! a come-from-behind win by michael from team mate rubens - winning the race at the very last corner of the last lap of the race..... :oh: hmmmm, ''hmm'' , wait a minute! :blink: isn't that the race where rubens was told to slow down and let michael through?!?!?

maybe you should have voted for indy gp 2005 - :)

well, maybe both can be counted as the "worst" wins by michael :D

spa 92 (first race win, after making a mistake and dropping behind his teammate martin brundle he noticed that brundles tyres were badly blistered and realised his would be the same so dived into the pits and changed to slicks and won the race, typical schumacher making a mistake and turning it inot an advantage)

spain 94 (stuck in 5th gear for most of the race, he adapted his driving style to that of his style when he drove mercedes sports cars when he would drive in higher gears to save fuel but still be fast)

spain 96 - lurid slides and immortal car control
monza 96 - winning with a car that realy shouldnt have won anything that year
monaco 97
spa 97

Argentina 98 - making a typicaly hard oportunistic move on coulthard and beating the mclarens which even Hakkinen had stated after qualy would take a mirical to beat them

Hungary 98 - in my opinion his greatest, in cunjunction with a brilliant strategy from ross brawn he won a race that seemed to be imposible to win from that position

sepang 99 - coming back from a broken leg, spent most of the race trying to go slowly to aid irvines championship bid and still had to move over to let him through!

japan 2000
france 2004 - 4 pit stop strategy - enough said!
imola 05
brazil 06

I miss schumacher but glad we have another exciting drama provider with hamilton now, perfect timing! :)

What about Suzuka 98 and Sepang 99? Suzuka 98 he started from last,was up to seventh by lap 5,was running third with around 20 laps left when his tyre blew(He did the fastest lap 0.9s better than anyone else).Although many drivers didn't fight it was still astounding.Sepang 99 coming back from a broken leg he takes pole by a second,lets Irvine through,blocks the McLarens,then lets Irvine through again later on so Irvine could try and win the championship

Surely China and Brazil 2006! Great drives!
But also Monaco 1997 (wonderful driving on the wet track), Monza 1998 (fantastic overtaking on Hakkinen), Imola 2006 (great battle with Alonso), and the list could go on...

Spa 1995 starting well behind and playing with Damon hill
Spain 1996: in a torrid rain with an ill new born Ferrari, he showed who was the master
Malaysia 1999: coming back after his silverstone accident, he took pole, best lap, gave victory to Irvine and was the best second driver in history (Irvine's quote)
Suzuka 2000: first championship with ferrari, kept Mika just behind for the whole race
Brazil 2006: his farewell goodbye was a classic Micheal, showed the young boys how to not let down, and fight til the end, great lesson to raikonnen in the meantime :O

For me the greatest races of Michael are:

1. Spa 1995 (Starting as 16th and had wn the race)
2. Catalunya 1996 (A really water flooded race, and his first Ferrari win)
3. China 2006 (exellent strategy and beatet Alonso in that race)
