Michael Schumacher at Mercedes : Where do your loyalties lie ?

one comment

Ok so this is a light hearted post about Michael Schumacher’s supposed move to the Mercedes team for the 2010 season. The move has already gotten Nico Rosberg a little scared about the whole thing, but we will come to that later, there is this whole issue of fan loyalty that needs to be resolved. Let us take me for example, when I started watching formula one Michael Schumacher was with Ferrari and I instantly started liking him, and since he drove a Ferrari , Ferrari became my favourite team.

Then during the period when Michael Schumacher broke his ankle and Mika Salo replaced him, the loyalties stayed with the Ferrari team and I was feeling like a true Tifosi. But Michael Schumacher’s latest move is sure to draw a lot of confusion , am I as a fan supposed to root for Michael Schumacher or Ferrari ?, I mean ever since Michael Schumacher left formula one I have always rooted for Ferrari. This isnt your average I am a Brit so I will support McLaren on every public website on the world wide web, since I am not German either things are going to be confusing.

Anyway, till I solve that paradox, Nico Rosberg is shit scared, he is proclaiming his No.1 driver status in Mercedes and how Michael Schumacher will find the going tough. His exact words being : “When you stay away from Formula One for a long time, it takes time to get used to all the trial sessions again, it is not simple.”

Meanwhile Schumacher’s camp is playing cautious, they haven’t confirmed or denied any of the rumours.
