Victoly: (never mind that passing is more difficult in road racing to begin with).

Dr Jack Badofsky: the biggest redneck here: Dr Jack Badofsky: Elvis Presleys Death Throne: SevenizGud: Are we talking about the Michael Schumacher who has multiple multiple multiple formula one championships? The one who is like a zillionaire from his racing awesomeness?Subby's only chance of being 1/10th as awesome as Schumacher is if he sets the land speed record in sucking.I'm a Schumacher fan and actually liked the headline. The joke was about the lack of passing in F1, not any lack of skill for Michael.My favorite was watching him stretch a lead out, then sandbag, and turn fast times the lap before and after a pit stop to stay in the lead the whole time. He was unbeatable on wet tracks as well.Dude could drive the fark out of an Opel taxi, too.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1572241/Michael-Schumacher -d rives-taxi-in-airport-dash.htmlAnd Carl Edwards could dust his ass in a Mini on a figure-eight.Are you nuts?! THAT NEVER HAPPENED!!!!...It was a Fiat 500 Abarth. Even worse.
Spanky McStupid: Big Michael fan here - hope he makes it through.capt.hollister: The Muthaship: Elvis Presleys Death Throne: He was unbeatable on wet tracks as well.IMO, he was a very good driver who happened to be driving for what, at the time was the greatest team, who were all dedicated to making him win, including the team's second driver who knew his job was not to win, but to help Michael win.Very true
The Muthaship: Elvis Presleys Death Throne: He was unbeatable on wet tracks as well.And if his driving didn't get him there, the radio did.
UNC_Samurai: When you've got 68 poles in just over 300 starts, you're not going to pass as much.You also have to remember when the aero rules changes went into place. Shortly after he retired the first time, the financial collapse hit and FIA implemented a number of changes designed to cut costs. This included prohibiting almost all aero devices other than the front and rear wing, the rear wings themselves got narrower and taller, and the front wings got wider and lower. They also re-banned TCS; traction control was initially prohibited in 1994, re-allowed in 2000, then banned again in 2008 (Schumi won five of his seven championships in an era where teams were allowed to use TCS).The unintended consequence of these changes? Cars needed clean air to make the most use of downforce. The closer you got to the car in front of you, the more disruption that guy's aero created. So you had a situation where a car with a lead had a big advantage in holding that lead. This is why KERS was introduced almost immediately after they banned TCS, and why after two years of passing almost disappearing DRS was introduced.
Kurohone: Great headline, horrible situation.Never been a (Michael) Schumacher fan, but this is just wrong. Really hoping he pulls through it in the end.

GooberMcFly: Is this why the new series of Top Gear has been delayed? Can't film without a functioning Stig.
