I wonder how many of you have noticed the way the F1 world looks at Michael Schumacher and the way the thoughts change race by race...

What I mean to say is that when he is winning and dominating people and critics say hes the best there is and sometimes that hes making it the sport boring and etc..

And if one race he doesnt do well every one starts saying that hes lost focus or that his time is up and hes no longer as motivated. Heard lotsa such comments after the Chinese GP.

And what does MS do? Comes back and blows the rest of the grid to smithereens at Suzuka

Why is it opinions change for MS race to race? I dont think thats fair. What he has achieved .. those are records which will be very difficult to break in time to come

Lets have your say on this guys

Thats the problem if a person is that successful! Win or lose, critics still find faults in you!

This is like our very own cricket team! They lose 5 matches and the whole country calls them losers. Then they go out and just about win 1 match, and the country is in love with them again...showering them with money and apartments and advertising contracts.

Then they go and lose again!

I'm sick of pieces like Formula One Needs A New Spark [rediff.com]. In this particular one, the writer wants Schumi to shift to Toyota and imitate Rossi's shift to Yamaha to liven things up a little! How do people forget MS shifted to Ferrari just after winning 2 championships with Benetton!?

2004 also made the championship a 5-way battle (ok, a 4-way battle for 2nd place) but, is the onus on the other teams to improve or for Ferrari to stop progress?
