Schumacher fan club chief slams Hamilton

The head of Michael Schumacher’s fan club has hit out at Lewis Hamilton for comments about the beleaguered F1 legend.

Kolner Express, a German tabloid, has quoted the new triple world champion Hamilton as comparing his achievements with the record seven titles won by Schumacher.

“I’ve never done the things that Michael did to win my titles,” the Briton is quoted as saying. “I won mine with my natural abilities only.”

Hamilton may have been referring to divided opinions about Schumacher’s wheel-to-wheel tactics, or rumours of favouritism within Ferrari and tyre supplier Bridgestone.

But considering the sad situation now endured by the beleaguered Schumacher and his family, Reiner Ferling said: “Hamilton should probably switch on his brain before he talks.

“He should learn about what Michael achieved. I just say, pride comes before a fall,” added Ferling, president of the fan club of Schumacher’s home town Kerpen.

    Maybe you consider calling a driver profane names from afar to be an opinion, but I think it’s pretty sh!tty. And if THAT is your way of thinking, then why are you upset at Hamilton? After all, he’s just expressing an opinion about a PUBLIC FIGURE who used to behave badly!

    Schumacher is a SEVEN time world champion who took a struggling Ferrari garage and with his leadership and his skill and his people made it supreme again. Michael Schumacher will go down UN history as one of the greatest if not the greatest driver ever. But Michael’s skills went far beyond just driving. He was a natural leader and spokesperson for the sport. Hamilton does not come close to any of that.

    How do you consider an opinion about a PUBLIC FIGURE behaving badly, a personal attack on Mr Molloneaux?

    Not to mention Benetton’s oft-suspected but never proven cheating in 1994 (traction control & illegal fuel rigs).

    Hold on. Dude, you can’t have it both ways. If you start a conversation with a personal attack, you can’t turn around and act condescending when someone does the same back to you. #hypocrite

    I may not like hammie… but Schumi had many team orders and several questionable moves (and crashes) to secure his wins. He may not have needed to use them.. but he chose to do so… also note he was famous for the Schumi Chop…

    Now, now, Mr. Molloneaux, no need to make personal attacks just because you dissagree with my opinion.
