Latest reports also say that Schumi isnt retiring... hes being forced out by Ferrari. and somehow, i find that quite believable.

only team willing to give him a racing seat was Red Bull... no-one else. better to "retire" now than to get into a slump, like Irvine.

"only" team, you must be crazy RU,Flavio,Ron,that BMW fellow were all at his door this year.he must have made it clear that if he continues it will be with ferrari.

So if Michael retires today it is because he is pushed out by ferrari ,cant one retire on his own,especially a 7 time WDC.and who writes this reports is it someone from ferrari or the manipulative press who have nothing to find.stop the twists and turns and let the man retire in grace if he wants to that is.

many wont mind if he continues but the Haters army surely will.

Schumi brialliance, ruthlessness and no quarter given but taken approach to racing is going to be difficult to replace. No driver not even the likes of Alonso or Kimi come close to stirring up the kind of adulation he has commanded over the last 13 years. Remember most Ferrari fans are in fact Schumi fans. F1 desparately needs another Hero.

Its amazing you still believe that especially since all of the people you have mentioned above, especially that BMW guy,Mario Thassien, al have repeatedly denied offering Schmuk a seat for 2007. Red Bull Racing are the only team to have confirmed an interest in Schumacher.

MS-haters seem to be at their cynical best as Schumi retires. "MS is retiring because he is thrown out of Ferrari". What for? For making them the most competitive team? For bringing them most number of championships over last decade? Or for still being the Number 1 Ferrari driver in this year's championship, or being the closest No.2 driver who can challenge raining World Champion?

All those, who think that a fighter like MS will chicken out because he is thrown out by Ferrari, seriously need some help. Champions are not made by others, but only they make themselves champion, through talent and hard work. Others are puppets. And whether you like him or hate him, MS was/is a champion.

Take you hate to some other thread and bash him as much as you want. Because you love a particular driver, you don't have to hate his rival.

Then in that case, was FA kicked out of Renault as well??? The Fonsi lovers need to take a walk, like FA did today ..

http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?PO_ID=37298

Here is one the reasons why people keep hinting that Schumi might have been required by Ferrari to leave. Of course it's pure speculation, just as you will never find the real truth out anyway. There are always two sides to a coin, it's upto you what you want to call.
I agree that the sport invokes many an emotion as fans are hugely loyal, as long as somebody has proof to back it up, it's pretty valid.

Here is what Alonso has to say, you decide whether he is agaisnt his team or something else:

I went through the link entirely and someone can deduce such conclusion only through speculation. Obviously, Schumi must have decided to call it a day quite sometime back and he must have discussed this with Ferrari. Unfortunately, people are trying to turn it a "chicken" and "egg" problem.

Had Schumi been asked to leave against his wish, there would not have been so much of good-will among Ferrari officials and MS as was evident at the end of the race.

As far as Fonsi goes, he is very good driver, but I am neither his fan nor hater, I wouldn't care much.

Well said RX135

@ported_head
Well i think the article instead of starting speculation about the reasons of schumi's retirement basically hints that schumi will retire... (The quoted ferrari boss made the statement before schumi announced his retirement)
He knew that schumi was retiring and hence when asked about the future of ferrari, he said all optimistic things that ferrari could do with the injection of new talent, rather than lamenting and cribbing on the fact that schumi was retiring...
He wanted to present a rosy picture of ferrari without schumi rather than a glum one...

Of course it's speculation. We will never know what the real deal is, each of us will take comfort in what suits us best. These guys are all professionals, they all have an image to upkeep, and at this stage I'm sure both MS and Ferrari can pull a few strings, so it's in best interest to end a relationship on a happy note. And why wouldn't they, look how many wins MS got them!
