F1 boss: Schumacher should not have returned to F1

Published

on

Formula 1 official right holder Bernie Ecclestone says that Michael Schumacher should not have returned to F1 following retiring in 2006. Also the he added that Formula 1 will miss Schumacher because he is still very popular.

Schumi made his first exit from the Formula 1 at the end of 2006 season, surprisingly he come-back to the sport at the start of the 2010 season with Mercedes GP.

Seven times world champion, 91 times took top podium, but his second career gives just one podium with this season at European Grand Prix third place. Also he finished 13th in the drivers’ championship.

“To be honest I don’t think that Formula One needed to be good for Schuey [Schumacher]. He enjoyed racing and was there helping to do good things for Formula One.” Bernie told Formula 1 official website.

“We will miss Michael, because even though he wasn’t winning races in those three years, he is still very popular.”

“I would rather he had stopped as a seven-time world champion than stopping now. People new to the sport – people who have joined the F1 fan fraternity just recently – will remember Michael now, not as he was.”

“They don’t see the hero that he was but the human that can fail. I think the important thing is – and this is probably difficult – to know when you can’t do what you used to do anymore and then hand it over to somebody else. I hope that’s what I can do: when I feel I can’t deliver, I will certainly say goodbye.”
