As the title suggests, do you think Michael Schumacher can rack up that last elusive win before he retires?
Form and the Mercedes car itself suggests that he can’t, but I’d argue that he’s more likely to than Nico Rosberg, should the Mercedes come good at any point.
Equally, retiring in 2006 seemed to spark an extra gear in performance for him, particularly at Brazil.
I’d say he won’t win another GP, but he won’t disgrace himself earlier, and it’d be great to see him on the podium once more somewhere.5th October 2012, 10:54 at 10:54 am #211738the_sigmanParticipant

As much as I used to hate him in his first career (taking out Hill etc) I’ve sort of warmed to him over the last few years, maybe because he hasn’t been winning all the time and seems to have been slightly humbled by not being hugely successful. So I’d like to see him win just once, but its looking pretty unlikely5th October 2012, 11:30 at 11:30 am #211740notTheStigParticipant
Mercedes seem to have given up on the rest of this year so probably not. I’d love to be proven wrong though5th October 2012, 11:52 at 11:52 am #211741mnmracerParticipant
I can’t see Alonso do it, but wouldn’t it be an amazing farewell and tribute if, at the Brazilian Grand Prix, for instance Vettel/Hamilton/Button is first with Schumi in second, and if it doesn’t matter for the championship, they give him one final win?
I mean, unlikely, but it would be the cherry on the top of an amazing season.5th October 2012, 11:59 at 11:59 am #2117425th October 2012, 12:02 at 12:02 pm #211743EstesarkParticipant
I agree with @necrodethmortem – I wouldn’t want to see that, and I’m sure none of those drivers would give up a win for him. I suppose Rosberg might, but that’s it.5th October 2012, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #211744moshbeardMember
It’s not impossible, the cars ahead of him could have a massive pile up or something, but realistically it’s very unlikely.5th October 2012, 16:09 at 4:09 pm #211745DaveF1Participant
As much as I would love to see him take another win I don’t see it happening unless there is a pile up that takes up most of the front runners or there is a dramatic change in the weather and Schuey happens to be on the correct tyres.
