Post After F-1 Stint Ralph is onto Touring Car Championship

Hi brothers,
After Toyota's rather cold relations with Raplh in the F-1 circuit with the team not renewing his contract and his lobbying for the Force India team going down the drain, Ralph Schumacher is set to debut in the German Touring (DTM) Championships. He will be locking heads with Mika, Jean Alesi, Frentzen and the report is based on the following

If ever there's an over-rated F1 driver, its Ralf Schumacher; with a head made of glass- that shatters under pressure. Its not a wonder that progressive teams dont want anything to do with him.

True - perhaps he would not even have got this far in F1 if it was not for his elder bro. I used to hear from commentary team that Michael was involved in his negotiations for a seat during most of his active years.

At the other end, the most under-achiever, given his skills, has to be David Coulthard IMHO.

Yea ! definitely with Michael in the backdrop he entered into F-1 and now its a different game altogether in touring car championships as former F-1 drivers including Mika could not make a mark in this sport though.
