Were he not German, we he say, Brazilian, he would be revered and nobody would be uttering a word.
I never even thought about that...and i think you're right.
I think he is important because he gives F1 its superstar. Every sport needs one. Its better when theres more then one that can compete against each other, but there should be at least one.
People who dont know the sport well see him and he can get them more interested in it. Think of Michael Jordan and how many kids he was the hero of. These kids were inspired by him and he probably motivated them to start playing basketball. I think its kind of similar here with Schumi. And thats good for the sport.
